Default How do I get overspray off window tint?

I have overspray on one of my windows and It's in the inside on the actual tint. Is there anyway to get it off? I was told that a claybar might mary the film. Any suggestions?

$25 is a crazy price. Places around here charge from $200+. I just ordered some $15 tint off eBay.

25 is just for one of the side windows, the back and front are what most places tax on, i paid 179 for sides,back window, front strip with a lifetime warr. i thought it was a pretty good deal, and the place does good work, Guitar , you going crazy waiting for the new wheels yet lol

It was a guy at the local jiffy lube. I'm in Rocky Mount. They said he did good work, but I figure I might try myself first...if it doesn't work, what's $20 to try something new.

That's really good. We have a good place around here but they charge a good amount and not sure if it has a warranty.

And yes...I really hope they get here sooner than later. Bad thing is my tires will be here next week and will be sitting in my room staring at me.

If a claybar doesn't work for you, you may be screwed. Some of the other things you could do might take off the tint. If not just take the tint off and get it re-done.

Thanks for the replies everyone! BOBS99SS- No, I haven't put my new wheels on. I still haven't bought tires for the rear, but I will have them on hopefully this month or March
