I didn't, its on the outside, but i don't know the process of how "tint is applyed" because i have never worked with it so i added it in just in case it effects is somehow. (better to be safe and ask then to fuck it up)

the razor is good, although the poilsh will do it, eithere way will work. We use steel wool at our shop, works PERFECT, i reccommend that.

paint thinner (acetone) will work fine. won't damage the glass at all, just be sure not to get ANY near your paint.

Use a clay bar. You can get one for 10-20 dollars at Pepboys or Advance Auto Parts or any similiar store that's close to you, even Walmart. Don't [fizzle] with paint thinner when you don't have too.

i dont know if i would belive the steel wool idea. I would definatlly use the acetone idea. But as stated before be sure to not touch the paint on the door at all, it will fade it.

trust me it works....i use it all the time because im always getting primer on my windows...and i have no scratches...i thought it was goin to scratch my window but it didnt

i just know the acetone is a bad idea.... the clay idea is really good but that cost money....steel wool is basically free...im sure you can find someone around that can let you have a little

I would say so there's no chance you could accidentally get paint thinner on your paint and mess it up, it would also probably attack the weatherstripping if you got it on that. Plus then you'll have it if you ever wanna detail your car...clay bar it, polish, wax. I work at a machine-assisted hand car wash, and we also detail cars. We use clay bars all the time when detailing, they work awesome. The ones we have at work cost like 40 dollars a piece.
