Aquapel removal?

I put Aquapel on earlier in the year and now it's wearing very unevenly. Its completely worn through where the blades change direction and most of my windshield is streaking/hazy. I more than likely didn't prep the glass properly before applying so it's not really a knock on the product itself. I just cannot figure out how to remove this stuff from the glass. I've tried white vinegar and water (suggested by a local detailer), isopropyl alcohol, and acetone. Nothing touched it. I called the manufacturer and the guy said "just glass cleaner and a paper towel very aggressively for a long time". I can't help but think there is a better way to go about this. Any help is appreciated.

I would clay bar and see if they does anything. Make sure you use something that might eat through the coating but not break down the clay

If you have a orbital polisher you can use glass polish and likely remove. You can see the polished surface as I stated away from trim.
Search glass polish on Amazon.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to try to clay bar it first and see what happens. Then I will probably move down the list. Unfortunately I don't have an orbital tool but I may have to invest in one of it comes down to it.

If you have a drill you can just get a pad.

Start with a mild polish.
No need to scratch glass and have more issues. Test an area on hatch maybe.
