cleaning a window that wont clean

hey guys

so i just ripped the tint off my slider because im so fn sick of it always looking dirty. thinking i didnt clean the window enough before tinting it.. clean it with window cleaner.... still looks dirty... clean it with carb clean to make sure all glue is off... still dirty... window cleaner gain... still dirty. yes, i did in and outside.

it's like the glass is stained from dirt or water droplets. how can i get my dam windows to look clean?!?!?!


thanks for the help!


now i got to go get some tint... and re-tint the slider. it has factory, but all the other rear windows have 5%..

I'd start off with 0000 then move to the 000 or 00 if needed. Just my $.02.

Re: cleaning a window that wont clean

I hit the glass exterior with my buffer when polishing. Takes some of the elbow grease out of it.

Thats what i did worked well. I also hit mine with one of those headlught cleaning kits. The staning on mine was so bad that all teh above made it look better still looked like crap in my opinion after a few days so now i have a big company logo across the back in perforated vynil... no more back window...
