I'll have to try some of the chemical methods.  I just don't want to wreck the windshield.

Brian,

The razor IN A HOLDER, not held in your fingers, is the easiest and least messy.  The Windex spray idea was really good.  Use a new blade and try it on an a small out of the way space of the windshield.  I have done that soooooo many times and never did I have any scratches I could see.  I do wear glasses though.

Clay bar, sold at auto paint stores, is MAGICAL.  No kidding.  Not cheap but if you have a really nice car you can use it on that also as a prelim or after wax process.

Easy Off.....my favorite product!  No wait thats KY....ops, almost.  It will remove new paint really well but it is LYE so protect your hands and eyes.  Old paint needs a warm environment to activate the lye to attack it.

New paint will come off with acetone, laq thinner, mek, gasoline""""""""hand cleaner or GOOP OFF.  Watch your dash.

The tint is in the windshield glass on any I have seen.  You can add tint as a layer or they have spray paint for that purpose but the factory glass is done that way.  Try a small patch to put your mind at rest.

About the "painter".  Where did you bury the body?

HTH,

John
