Cleaning light bulb

Anyone know a proper way to clean a light bulb. My HID is black due to the glue still on the bulb. Any way to clean off ?

That sounds like its gonna be a pita to clean without messing it up. You can pick up a cheap set of bulbs off eBay for around $10. Might be your best bet

yeah it's your best bet...make sure to get all of it off....i won't lie i'm not a fan of xentec's quality, and it sounds like their shipping suffers too. hope things work out on it
