that'll damage the plastic im sure. I put brake cleaner on my tails, and now they dont look good with the spray tint anymore. When I used the brake cleaner, I could see the red from the tails washing away lol

Wet sandings the safest way to remove the tint, but it takes 2 hours a tailight to remove.

just cuz they are "brake lights" doesn't mean you use "brake cleaner" on them

haha i didnt even notice that lol.

Timbo you could try diesel on your tails. I tried gas to remove the tints but brake cleaners the fastest way. Wet sandings the longest, but you dont risk damaging the plastic
