    Removing taillight tint

    Im sure alot of you have seen my recent poll and have all voted on the full red lights rather than black.

    However i dont feel they suit the car being silver so ive decided to remove the tint off the reverse lens to break it up a bit and give it a nice subtle look

    Is there any house items i could try first? We have no thinners, plus i seen
    they damage the lens?

    Tryed using white spirit, works but at a very slow rate.
    Tryed nail polish remover, but diluted it so it wasn't as strong, did not even touch it. Maybe it would work if i do not dilute?

    Or is there anything else?

    Cheers

    some cellulose thinners and a rag but you need to wipe it off quickly and then clean the lights off with water
