smoked tail light removal

Does anyone know of a good way i can remove the niteshades on my tail lights? The previous owner has it to dark, so during the day I almost get hit because they can't see my brake lights.

Easiest way to remove use pour a little has on it and run with rag. It will come off in roughly 5 minutes. Easiest way to do it period.

Thanks, the last owner made it look like pure crap. As well as i have to repaint the interior because hr decided to spray paint it this awful blue color. A lot of work i have to put into it, but it will be worth it in the long run

I know exactly how you feel. And if you don't like your own end results you can always buy a pre tinted set or reg. set from American muscle.

Yeah thats true, i'm gunna have to order a new soft top soon as well. The back glass was seperating, i got that adhesived back into place. I just need a whole new one in general! Not to mention the fire hazard waiting to happen with the way he wired two blue neon tubes under dash on the driver and passenger side! The only thing he managed right was the exhaust, there's no emissions testing in my county so i have no cats

Same here for my county. As for the neon tubes, of your going to keep them, just an inline fuse and tie it in to your main hot and you should be fine.

I'm going with a different color, the blue he used was hideous. As well as he never removed all the panels he painted, so you can see the tape marks on them. Never used a clear coat either. What is wrong with people these days

I hear ya on the wiring. My 93 LX the girl had some friends put the small, cheap neons (purple nonetheless) in (and a crummy install on a stereo too, ran the speaker wires outside the rubber boots on the doors) and they just ran the wires to the terminals in where the original bulbs were for the dome and hatch light. And ran screws intothe interior panel in back and in the front edge of the headliner at the unroofed... SMH....

Carb cleaner is the best way to get it off

Spray and let it soak? Or just wipe it off?

Let soak and whip off may have to do it a couple times
