Remove Nightshade

Compliments of 99offroadrngr @


If you want to remove nightshade off of your tails without worrying that you'll melt them using aircraft stripper, paint thinner or whatever, this is the easiest way to do it. I figured I'd try it out since my tails were already ruined with night shade plus I realized its really gay.

Enough of my cool story, onto the how-to.

Stuff you'll need:

- A can of Citristrip

- Paper towels or a few rags (some wet, some dry)

- 2000 grit sandpaper 

- Gloves (recommended unless u want your hand to look like you have liver spots)


- Beer

Here is what I started with

Spray the Citristrip on the tail light and make sure you cover every spot where the nightshade has been applied. Let it sit for 5 minutes to do its job.

After 5 minutes, your tail light will look like this

Grab your dry paper towel or rag and wipe off the gayness then use a wet one to get the rest of it off. 

Finished wiping off 


My tail light looks scuffed up because I had scuffed them before "redding out" the tails with duplicolor metalcast before applying the nightshade. You can polish the light if you want to keep it stock but I'm going to scuff it up more, red them out again and leave them alone
