    I bought my Excursion from a couple that owned a business. They put decals on the rear windows to advertise it. They peeled those off and had it detailed before selling it to me. I noticed the other day when we got our first frost you can see the outline of where the stickers were. Any way to get rid of that? You cant really see it any other time except when there is water or frost on it.

    All the goo and sticky is gone. The glass is smooth and clean. It is like the rest of the glass is dirty or something.

    I run a detailing shop, and you have hit the head on the nail with your last comment.
    " It is like the rest of the glass is dirty or something"

    The decals on the glass from the previous ower acted like protection to the elements... not much you can do about that...

    Clay bar.... Then follow with a fine cut polish and buffer over the whole window.
