    removing lacquer from my rear lenses??

    any tips?

    i am looking down the road of buying a replacement set and tinting them but its finding a pair at the right price...

    im thinking it might be cheaper for me to "re-do" these i have so.........
    what tips have you guys got for removing lacquer from my lights (about 3 coats)

    or do i put some elbow into it and sand em?
    again if so what grit paper do you recomended as i dont want to munch through the lense!!

    some advice would be great please/
