    Tail light tint removal NEED HELP

    So I bought my 2004 WRX and noticed there was a light tint to my tail lights, and it just made them look dirty so i decided i wanted to remove it. Heard GOOF OFF was a good way to remove it, let it soak on the light then wipe off after hours of this and some sanding its time for me to put a clear coat on my lights. Anybody know what grit sand paper I should use before i start to spray the clear coat?

    You don't really need to clearcoat your lights and if you did after you sanded and sprayed it, it would wind up chipping and becoming a mess. Start out with 1000 grit, look the lights over after you dry them, they will be hazy. Check for bubbles or clear little areas that would be low or high spots. Go to 1500 grit and check them again. I would buff them, but if you don't have one you can use a drill and a bonnet type of material to buff it out. Get a small bottle of Meg's 105 compound from your local pro boys auto zone etc. and buff it to a high shine. You can also get a headlight restoration kit and try that first... If that doesn't get them looking like new sand first and do it again with the kit.
