Re: how to remove vht tail light tint

Why not some paint thinner? Isn't VHT essentially a paint type product?

Re: how to remove vht tail light tint

you know when i did mine i got in a hurry on one of my tails, i just wet sanded with steel wool, and kept the water running and continued to sand until all the paint was gone, worked like a charm....finished product was the same texture as the other tail that i did not overspray when i finished

Re: how to remove vht tail light tint

Paint thinner should do the trick but sometimes is a PITA. Try using Goof Off i've heard this removes it aswell

Re: how to remove vht tail light tint

DO NOT use any chemicals or strippers...it will ruin the lens.

Just wet sand them...easy and quick.

Re: how to remove vht tail light tint

when you wet sand no matter how fine of a grit it'll leave the finished product looking Dull.

only professional clearcoating will make it shine like the rest of the vehicle

Re: how to remove vht tail light tint

Go to the local store and get wax...any car paste/liquid and get some microfiber towels and start rubbing away...going to take a long time but I did my gf's Jetta and it streaked like a mother down the back of her car...easy fix just takes a little elbow grease

Re: how to remove vht tail light tint

Wonder if some Mirror Glaze would do it? It's mildly abrasive and should'nt scratch....just another idea....
