I spray painted my taillights w/ candy apple red about 1 year ago. I got the 98 tail lights finally and i'm trying to get my other taillights back to stock. I tried alcohol to get the old paint of my taillight but it wont work. What do i use to take off the paint ? nothing too strong please i've herd of taillights being completly torn w/ strong paint removers.

thanks for the help t-i members....

Haha, when I spray painted my front clear red, cops busted me so I had to take it off. I used a mixture of paint thinner, nail polish remover and this stuff called goo off.

Warning however, goo off is bad for plastic. I'm not sure about paint thinner or nail polish remover, but my front clears have a very slight hazing to them.

i have just did it because some asshole threw acid on my tail lights that i did.welli used the apint thiner to take the paint off from cars. i bought it at my local distributor of car paint, it should not run more that 10 for a gallon. also becareful not to use so much because you could make tham get that haze looking.i hope this helps.

i used the same paint, cany apple red, on my altezza tail lights. To remove that type of paint, you want to use something called ELO. It a lacquer remover, the type of paint that the candy apple read. This is completely safe on plastics, just take a little rubbing, nothing too much. it completely takes it off. i just took the paint off my lenses a few hours ago.
