Ive always used Carb Choke and Throttle Body cleaner. Comes with one of those little straws to spray through, and it literally starts coming off with each spray.
It pretty much slops right off the lights. Its kinda gross

So you all know... If you're like me and prep didn't work on your fake plastic trim and you wanted dark chrome... Make sure to do a light wet sand with high grit... Then apply adhesive promoter... Then spray vht. I ended up not doing this and it came out bubbly.
After I ended up removing the Ford badge blue color on purpose :) I like the chrome badge. Next is the inside lettering to be painted.

|SPIinDisguise||Ive used gas from the gitgo when wanting to redo my niteshade on my tails. Wouldn't use anything else, doesn't damage the tail light or anything. Little bit of elbow grease is all you need. Glad to see someone else does the same.|

Read this online. --- "In an effort to fight misinformation around the web regarding how to remove VHT Nightshades, I made this guide as a resource for those who want to do it right. I traded some 04/05 tails I had that weren't in the best shape for this pair that were tinted to hell, but I knew with some elbowgrease I could make these right.
What you will need:
1. Brake Fluid
2. A shop rag
3. Rubbing Compound
This is a warning: If you use acetone, nail polish remover, paint remover, or aircraft paint stripper, this can damage the tail light, creating pockmarks as it eats away at the plastic.
Step One: Remove tail lights as brake fluid will damage your paint.
Step Two: Douse your shop rag in brake fluid and start rubbin it out.
Almost immediately you will start seeing results after 5-10 minutes. Total cleaning time is about 20-30 min"

|HxCThumbs||im not gonna lie gas took some work. lol sanding just sounds like a bad idea.|

acetone should be fine... i use it at work and have only melted thin plastice over time (cups and what not) i was spraying my emblems black and used acetone and they were fine... as long as you wipe it off you'll prob be fine... also you could try denatured alcohol... little nicer that acetone...
but if gas works, go for it, i hate sanding!!
