Third brake light tinted? How to remove?

893 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Gen210
My Sonoma I recently bought has tint on the third brake light, the headlights were tinted with some spray on stuff and that was pretty easy to remove but I can’t seem to remove the tint on the third brake light. I don’t think it’s film, and I tried to wet sand it with steel wool and some water and it just made it hazy but still tinted.

how do I go about removing this?

Not knowing what the material is makes for a challenging 'correct' answer. It is possible that the lense is an aftermarket "smoked" type, where the coloration is intergral to the plastic. IF it is an oil based spray on product, perhaps try using acetone, or mineral spirits (turpentine) - separately, and try a small test area first. Another solvent might be Goof Off. If none of those are successful, you may be looking at a simple light lense replacement. There are plenty of online sources and the cost won't break the bank.
