    You can't get it off? I used shoe polish at my first AutoX on my windows. It was in the sun for a solid 14 hours and then I drove it almost 200 miles home. When I got back, it came off with just a wet wash cloth.

    Shouldn't need a razor blade man, just try some warm water and a rag.

    When I used it in Auto-X, before it was banned, I could NEVER just wash it off.
    Thumbnails and time for me.
    THEN a good application of Rain-X.
    It's like wax for the windows.

    I got it after much trouble... the ******** chips kept sticking to the body paint. I hit the windows with a razor and a lot of water. PITA>

    The FIRST time I used it, I got rid of "Chips" for a week and a half, until I waxed again!

    I used to work on a car lot, and we always used windex and super fine steel wool to take off pricing #'s. Does'nt make chips, just a tinted liquid that you can hose right off.
