I've never used aluminum lugs before, I could see the nut cracking when torqued to the factory spec. Doesn't sound too safe idk

yeah that would make sense. i don't want the stock steel bolts, only because i want color. but i also don't want to spend a fortune on them. maybe i'll stick with stock for now.

Dude, de-natured alcohol is the way to go when removing paint from fragile surfaces. It will not harm your light in any way, plus you don't need to sand or clear to use the rusteoleum on it afterwards.

I used it on my third brake light after I painted it, cause the first time around looked like crap. after I used that it took me two coats and my brake light blended in perfectly with my car, until I added the overlay on top of it lol
