The tint fil will just peel off, use GO-GONE to remove the adhesive.

Try the tint spray next time and it will not bubble like film.

or take a needle and poke it from the side and push the bubble out with a credit card or something.

Use a heat gun to take off the tint. Maybe even a blow dryer. lol

Yes but it was a b*tch to get off.

If you dont have goof off or goo gone, isoprophic alcohol works nicely.

I actually took the spray tint off with Nailpolish remover.. and it didn't damage the plastic at all. I thought it would have, but it didn't.. Maybe it depends on what kind of nailpoish remover you use.

It was a ***** to remove though.. took me a couple hours.
