Today was a first. I worked on my car and didn't ruin anything! Check it out!
The day starts out with "buddy" and his nastiness. He was really dirty so I was going to do a real good cleaning and make him somewhat nice looking in the school's parking lot.
It was freaking hot out! Later on this week I had an appointment to get my tint removed. $70 for the removal seemed okay, since it was professional and all, but I was tempted to learn how to do this myself and save some money.
Here is the back window tint (Old Pic--2 Weeks). I hate really dark tint. I wanted to lower my Police magnetism the best I could!
This stuff peeled right off. People tell me horror stories about tint removal, I was pretty **** careful; I got it off with no screw ups. I didn't use a razor once! Only a bottle of windex to get the glue off!
Check out "buddy" naked!
Here is another pic, with all the dirties on him! Notice Window Contrast.
I was thinking of taking the side window tint off, but it wasn't as dark as the the hatch tint, I kept it on.
So I wanted to go back to the 80s today, so I got these bad boys out and cleaned them up!
I went all around town until I found the strongest double-sided tape I could find...at Advance Autoparts!
Here is the finished product!
So "Buddy" was still dirty, the contrast between the louvers and the body was like night and day, so I went to rinse him off real quick at a local car bath.
Keep in mind, this was a high pressure rinse! No soap or anything else, no time nor money! (I normally wash at home, but this place is cool)
BTW: My stripes don't look crappy like that, must be when I uploaded them, the colors got distorted.
Anyways, I started this trip at 2:30 and finished around 6:30. Removing all the window glue was the worst. I'm really glad I did it myself and saved the money, now I can put some gas in it! (Those black stripes on my door are glue strips I have to get off, from where my door mouldings use to be.)
