Tint on Headlights

Hey Fellas i just purchased a set of tinted 05+ headlights and they are tinted. Granted the fact that they look awesome, Id like to take the tint off bc the lights are still bright but they do not shine far like my stock 03s did. I know i can get the tint off but what could i use to get the glue from the tint off the headlights. Im think rubbing alcohol but i dont want to yellow the lights. What else would work

Thanks

i forget where your at, but me and my buddy do vinyl graphics and such. if you bring the lights by we will take the tint off, we have some stuff specifically for removing tint/vinyl.

Re: Tint on Headlights

Go to any automotive store that sells tint. They make a adhesive remover that will remove the glue pretty easily. I used it worked awsome
