    if somebody could give me a reply that would be cool. I have allready tried white spirit, and also nail polish remover. One of the two seemed to of cracked the tint which is a start, but neither have removed it. I need a quick reply

    google is your friend. Not sure how well this will work on plastic though.

    Why do you have to remove it? Too dark? Trouble with Johnny Law?

    It used to be my bros old car and he put the tint on it. Now its mine i would prefer it too be back to standard so I dont run the risk of getting into any bother over them. Also its not tint you stick on and peel off, its Spray tint

    Spray tint can't be removed from plastic as far as I know. You'll need to replace the rear light inserts. Spray tint can be scrapped off glass but it takes forever and replacement is usually preferable.

    Sorry.

    Cellulose Thinners - I been looking around diff forums, and a lot of people have said that if you use Cellulose Thinners itll come off easily. Down to halfords tomorrow
