90-91 tailight help...

so the previous owner of my new sedan decided to paint the damn center piece (except the reverse squares).  so i want to know if i could use paint remover and still save the lens underneath.  oh, and im only gonna transfer to 88-89 tail lights if this doesnt work...kind of a last resort...so please dont jump to that conclusion right away.  if the remover doesnt work however, thats gonna be my next route.  thanks again guys.

I think that any paint remover will damage the clear plastic under neath. It'd be far less effort to just replace the panel. Besides, 88-89's are far better anyway, right? Haha.

You could also mask the reverse lights and sand the paint off, then when it's back to clear plastic, move to a higher grade paper gradually, and then polish it.

Go to your local ace hardware, or equivalent will have it im sure. Its called "Graffiti remover", or something of that sort. I used it on my plastic clear corners and it worked great. I even let it sit on, didnt eat away at anything.


Im gonna be using it for my tails soon.
