Any of you base guys looking to swap to GT tails?

I am looking to swap into some base tails... Mine are nightshaded but can certainly remove the nightshades prior to shipping if desired.

Anyone want to trade?.. Let me know...

How can it be removed without damaging the tail lights?

It can be sanded off using 1200-1500 grit but would also need to be polished. It isnt easy to get them look new again though.

Actually for the record its VERY easy to get the new look.

Carb cleaner and the nighshades melts away... then for good measure can go 1000-1500-2000 and buff. Trust me

Ill post pics in a bit guys.. Like I say I can always "de-nightshade" if they are more popular as stockers

I had not heard on using carb cleaner but I can see how that would work.

Even goo gone will take some of the tint sprays off.

What if they had clear coat over the tint spray? Nightshades doesn't really stand up to the test of time without a clear coat to protect it.

Goo Gone over Carb Cleaner, if you spray excessive amounts of it on Plastic Carb Cleaner will melt it since its the same stuff basically as Brake Cleaner.
