Exclamation Tint spray trouble.

alright as you all know by now I did the whole nite shades tint spray deal. Great product nice result but I just saw the pic of the black optra with what looks kinda like a custom cover to where you see the two circles for tail light and the reverse light/turn signal dealio..

What Im wondering is I want to take the old tint spray off and do it like that.. How can I get that stuff off, please help

ahaha...same thing happened with me! I'm glad I didn't take the time though cuz I think it looks better fully smoked with my new paint.

Anyways, nail polish remover worked better than anything else I tried. I used the non-acetone baby pinkish stuff (and bottle) that you can find at drug stores. It didn't seam to hurt the lens but I'd still be carful. It will take off paint though. The longer you wait the harder it'll be to get off. My headlights had the stuff on for at least a month (maybe 3). 1/3rd came off very easy, 1/3rd wasn't bad at all, then the last 1/3rd was a really pain in the ass.

Good luck

I just used that method...I knew it didn't hurt the lens so I didn't want to take anymore risks.

I found that once even the slightest bit of the tint gets on your rag it barley removes anymore tint.

you could also try lighter fluid for a zippo. amazingly enough its good for things like that it says on the bottle of ronsonol fluid, i think, it can be used for that. just watch the paint.

tangent question: for the tint spray, did you just pull off the cover and spray the tint directly? or did you sand it down first and all that other ish?
