Hi guys,

Just bought a 63 plate GTD with spray on rear light tint which hasn't been done very well. It's peeling slightly on one side but would like to take it all off.

Whats the best way of removing it without damaging the plastic?

You'll probably have to sand them with 2000 grade wet and dry then polish the lights with rubbing compound.

Don't be tempted to put thinners on them, it'll burn the plastic lenses.
