Tip: Asking your question in riddles doesn't generally help you get helpful responses.

I'll take a stab at it anyway, did you forget to mask your windows? If you did, you're going to have a hard time getting the paint off the window area without effecting the paint you want to keep. My suggestion would be to get some black vynal or Monokote and put them on the outside of the windows like most RTRs do.

Get a black sheet of vinel, use the old window masks to trace out the shapes on the vinel, cut them out and stick them to the outside of the body.

I did the same thing, but only made on small pass before I noticed.
You can also use some denatured alcohol and rub the pain off the windows.
It can be a pain to do that.
