    I've bought a cheap set of rear bulb cluster that have been tinted, just want to know what's the best way to remove the tint without damaging the lense?



    Cheers

    I would have thought thinners would be your best bet mate. Make sure you do it off the car! Once saw a bloke take the paint off his rear quarter doing some whilst on a car!

    Some people say using nail polish remover works, it doesn't! I will react with the plastic and cause it to start cracking.

    Hope that helps.
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!
