I have come up against a film I cannot remove, and I'm looking for suggestions. Have an RA42 Celica I spotted while hunting down arcade games for your troubles.
Ok, here's my problem.
The inside of the windshield in my Odyssey has not been truly clean in a long time. With a weekend road trip coming, I am trying to finally get the annoying swirls gone, as I'll be doing some night driving.
I CANNOT BANISH THIS WEIRD GREASY SHIT
It is a very thin film, but everything I do just pushes it around. I can draw all kinds of lovely patterns in it, but I cannot get it off.
So far I have tried
- hot soapy water
- carb cleaner(!)
I have used lint free cloth, paper towels, cotton shop towels and a micro fibre cloth. All with no results.
I have managed to pull up tiny bits with a razor blade. Unfortunately, the windshield is curved in both dimensions, so I can't make any real progress that way.
The razor blade did allow my to get a 'roll' of it up to see it's black and sticky, whatever it is.
So, ideas? Blind me with your James May-like cleaning prowess.
