tint and nightshade

Best way to remove double layer limo tint and glue?

Also, best way to remove nightshade from tail lights without hazing the plastic?

Thanks

Straight ammonia. Spray it on the window tint, put a plastic bag over it to keep it from evaporating off and let it soak in for a while. Keep it soaking for a little while and it will come right off.. I am not sure about the nightshade

Re: tint and nightshade

As for the tail lights.. Try wet sanding with 120 then 240 then 400 the use a buffer and wax to bring the shine back.

Re: tint and nightshade

Typically buffing plastic is a no no. And your never going to get it shiny with just 400, I would definately go up to 1500. Plastic burns easy when buffing, it can be done you just have to go easy with it otherwise you will be snading the burn marks out and doing it again.

Re: tint and nightshade

Depends on if you use a serious buffer or a low speed polisher. The low speed would be best but I have done headlights and marker lights with a normal buffer before. Just have to pay attention and take your time

i got my new truck tinted the same way that one was, only a lot lower brow!

the tailights, you'd be better off buying new ones, instead of trying to take it off. or txt me, i have a set of brand new ones for 08 i might trade ya...

Re: tint and nightshade

Peel the tint off and scrape the glue with a razor blade and use windex as a lubricant.
