Where else are they catching film violators?

I had picked up a 90 ml bottle from Hypercity, for polishing bathroom fittings

Do not remember the price, but am sure it is less expensive than most car cleaning products. Now that I found another use for it, will pickup a bigger bottle next time. Will update the price then.

Here is a pic, as promised. Though this treatment does not make the window completely like a mirror, there is enough reflection to ensure the insides of the car are not in plain sight. This pic was shot at 6 PM. During bright sunlight, the glass is shinier

Lumar has more glue then 3m , there is no issue with quality of Lumar sunfilms . I had ultra performance lumar at sides and when i got it removed , it left lot of glue .

Seems to be more difficult that I thought!! Probably has to do with the quality of the film used!

Great Idea. I will first try carnauba wax rubbing compound on glass. If it does not work then Silvo it is!

Kerala Police chief had announced on TV that they are not going to chase down sunfilm users. Now, I think he really meant that.

3M's RE35 does this by default. Of course, with 35% VLT to boot.

Thanks for the idea!

Brilliance!

It'll be tough to explain this to a cop, though. They'll feel the window for film edges first. Then it's time for some knives out. As long as the glass doesn't get scratched you could have a laugh at their expense, I guess.

If it lasts at least a week with the neighbourhood car cleaner's cleaning procedure, it's worth the effort.

In Chennai a colleague was stopped near Spencers Jn and fined for sunfilm over the weekend. Very helpfully there was a guy near the cop offering to just "tear" off the film - without any cleanup of glue etc for Rs 150! Also heard from others that cops are working with such people to make money - the one removing the film gets some amount and the cops get some amount. They are not taking bribes you see !

Boy oh Boy. You are doing wonders.

Was wondering if you applied the polish on the inside or the outside of the glass. Concern in here is if it is on the inside, due to climate controlled conditions, how does it effect in the long term on the health of the passengers inside. If we can apply the same on the outside, it might be just more than worth the price of the smile on the cops faces !

Got the answer after reading your effort. Thanks again

Cool. Did not do the inside, as I did not want to be seeing myself in the window

5. Once the powdery stuff has come off, polish vigourously with another clean dry soft cloth
6. Repeat process if required
I hope this doesn't leave marks on the glass if used repeatedly; you never know if the chemicals in the polish harm the glass in any way.

The container itself says can be used on glass, which is where the idea originated from

Thanks Rajan. Looks like this solution already tried by our bhpian. This polish costs Rs.400 on ebay.

Looks like Bangalore Traffic Police are serious. They have just posted this picture on their FB page here

The comments are a clear indication of the lack of understanding of the SC ruling amongst the average car user. Hope the BTP does something about making them aware, instead of just fining.

Though I was keen on following this thread but stopped reading as most of the comments are not worth the effort. I read this thread only if it is updated with any post of yours. So please clarify that why time and again the BTP is using the term "Black Films" instead of "Sun Films". I might have missed it if explained earlier.
Big Thanks for your efforts and Keep it up!

Hey, come on. There are a lot of others who have contributed very useful info on this thread.

I guess the term "Black Film" is used as it was also used in the SC ruling. The correct term would be Sun Control Film, not even Sun Film.
