    Heck ya! I've used six of these kits(I should have been charging lol) and they start with sandpaper! Its kind of scary the first time. If it works...I use a DeWalt drill that plugs into 115 volt. Battery drills don't usually last a hour lol
    when my friends come up, i hear, "you sold the camarrrroooh.....HOLY BLEEP A WRX!"
    Ya has that effect on me too.

    I've always used DOT3 for removing paint from plastics, that would probably work well here, but make sure to pull the tail lights first, you don't want to get it on your body paint .

    it looks like nightshades I had this on my civic taillights and needed to have it removed for inspection it took about a half hour with a little bit of laquer thiner on a rag and rubbing it. It wont ruin the tail lights and will make it look almost as good as OEM. You can also try to use gasoline i've seen videos of people removing it with that quite easily. Just remember less is more you want to avoid getting this stuff on your paint so little dabs of it on the cloth will do just fine. It would be much better to do this before you spend a ton of money at a body shop.

    You can also use nail polish remover and then polish it up. It prob won't look new but it looks ok and it takes a bit of work for it to take it off but I did it last night to a friends truck and it worked
