I knew I should have used better :x tape. :cry: What would you guys recommend using on the windshield to remove over-spray and adhesive left from the tape without hurting the windshield?

I'm afraid paint thinner is going to be your only choice of removing the paint...not sure it will cause hazing.

Also try FNP :sm:

There is actually a chemical that you can put on the windsheilds to mask it off. I'm not sure what its called , but it looks like blue "white-out" . You paint it on the windows, let it dry, then paint over it. After you're done painting it , it just peels off of the windows. Check a well stocked hobby store.
Another thing to do is to remove the window from the model.

I did remove the windshield from the car. The original car the windshield came off of was a green one and the one it is being installed on is black. I needed to paint the bottom of the winshield black. I guess I might need to try the 2 options mentioned on a scrap piece. Thanks guys.

update: finger nail polish and plastic windshields do not mix. Its a good thing I tested it on a scrap piece. :pheww: And seeing that paint thinner is a stronger substance, I really see no reason in even testing it. Looks like I am gonna have to buy another parts car. :roll:
windshield--->:hammer:<---me
