Just purchased a used travel trailer. It's in great condition but the previous owner did a sloppy job applying that film on the windows that is supposed to reflect heat and makes them darker. Lotsa large bubbles and the bw finds this to be very unatractive. Looks to involve a lot of careful scrapping to remove it. Any hints as to howto go about this would sure be welecome..


Thanks all, Jim(MO)    Posted 08-18-2003 at 11:45:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
Lotsa good suggestions. Taking possesion Friday am. Looks like a weekend long project. Gonna try the hair dryer trick. Saw it posted on the paint & body forum too. Finish up with goo-gone (?) or something similar. May try to put some new film on, correctly. Did this many years ago on a mobile home I bought for my kids to live in when they were in college. It held up for the 6 years I owned it.

Auto body suppliers sell decal-remover products. I haven't used them myself, but it seems to me that decals ought to be similar to that window film.
A sister site to this one, ytmag.com has a paint & bodywork forum. You might ask this question over on there. I'd be surprised if one of those folks wouldn't have some experience with window film.

Get yourself a razor blade scraper. Auto parts stores have them. I think I've seen some spray-on window tint remover too. Or maybe I used decal remover. You'll be in for a long hard job gettin' that stuff off no matter what. :(

Start the edge to peeling off and pull off all you can and then it will be sticky glue like on window so put Goo-Gone on it to bring this off. You can get goo gone at walmart. I did this on car window. Good luck
