Unhappy how to fix little nick in tinted window?

I got this little nick in my tinted window, I know this seems to be a no win question, but does anybody know how to fix like a tiny nick in the tint of a window, is there a repair kit or something i can use at home to fix it. I really don't wanna go and pay money to have it redone.

thanks

You can't "fix" the tint. Have the one window retinted if its that bad, just make sure its the same place that did the other ones, so they match.

Invisible Glass has no ammonia

windex and all them other ones do, which can **** up and fade the tint. in some cases, it can discolor it.

LOL @ SHARPIE ahhahaha that really made me laugh. I was gonna say something like that. Just drive with your windows down lol, and then at night you hopefully wont notice it. If its on your windshield just remove the windshield and drive without one. If you get stopped by a cop tell him why you removed it, you did not want to be driving with illegal window tint =D.
