:waving:Hi, does any one know a good way to get paint off a rear light lens. Would white spirits damage the plastic? Thanks, Jim

Most of the time I use a little acetone and a white rag. In most cases it will do the trick and not damage the lens. Acetone evaporates really fast. It might take a little elbow grease but should do the trick. I hope this helps.

WD-40 works too.

Knowing the type of paint would help. You want to disolve the paint but not the lens.

I've used windex (yeah, windex) depending on the paint type...any water-based paint dissolves pretty well. Otherwise WD-40 is the trick.

I own a sign shop and i always use citrus based cleaner or alcohol. Just don't use anything stupid like pvc cleaner or nail polish remover. It will melt the plastic.

if you go with the wd40 dont buy the spray tins (cost to much).

Go to you local motor factors and buy a gallon of wd40 (comes with a spray container) for approx 22 notes.



Wd40 on a rag is a great way to clean your wheels
