If you are talking about simply removing tint. Its not that hard, I got pulled over for it. I just happen to have a razor blade in my drivers door pouch, before he even got a chance to write the ticket, I nicked the corner of the tint just enough that it peeled off in 2 big chunks.

$100!!!! That's as much as it costs to install the stuff - what a rip...

You're such a smart girl
