I spent 4 hours scraping old tinting from both door windows, not fun, but what an improvement!

Yes, you are right. Classic vee-dubs are better off without this ugly tint. I was planning of removing the tint of our '72 bay bus too!

I did the same thing two weeks ago on the side glass and back window of my fasty. Once I had the right tool (long handled scrapper with a razor blade on the end) it wasn't too bad. It made the car look much better. I even took my DAP when I was done and polished the windows. Looks pretty good now.

How did you get the tint off the back window without damaging the defroster wires? ---Installed new visors today.

The defroster wires are ALL so worn on Type 3's they never work anymore! One little missing bit ruins the circuit. If yours works it's 1 in 1,000?

Got the clutch disc, plate, t/o bearing and sleeve in from CIP1. Put it all together, took it off the stands, popped out the windows and drove it around in the 54 degree weather Dancing
