Default eww. don't smoke in your car, please.

Man, I had to do a complete detail on a mid-90s (I think it was a 96 pry) monte carlo yesterday at work. The thing is, it had tinted windows. It wasn't too bad of looking car, other than the white overspray on the entire car that I had to hand remove with enamel reducer before having to buff and polish it 100 times. But anyway, point is, also until I noticed something as I began to clean the inside of the windows. Nearly a whole roll of paper towels and literally a whole bottle of windex and simple green were used in cleaning them. When cleaned the smoke just came off as pure goopy yellow resin off all the windows. Hell it didn't even look like the windows were tinted when it was done. That car must have had 13 mexican drywallers (no offense anyone) packed in there every day taking a cruise and smoking 4 cigarettes each with the windows up every day for the last 8 years. If I would have had a camera at the time I would have taken pictures just to show how ridiculously gross it was. Just thought I'd share this with you, bored out of my mind, haha.

Peace.

Actually, it looked a lot like that. It was real bad.

I'm not sure what brand it actually is. Car dealership= professional products = bought in bulk ( I think it simply just said enamel reducer on the side?)
