    Ok, I used the spray on headlight tint and when i sprayed it on it cracked. So I sprayed a few more layers on and it still turned out like CRAP! So does anybody know how to get this off?

    I am not sure if it will work but you could try something like the 3M headlight restoration kit. It uses a drill and sanding process.

    Denatured alcohol is the only thing that will take it off.

    I'd be careful when you sad it off not to scratch the plastic and end up frosting them.

    I used the goof off stuff and it took it right off but now I have a bad haze over the light like it took off the clear coat. Is there anything I can do besides buying new headlights? I know there is a headlight restoration kit but im not sure the price or where to get it. Any ideas??:money:
