okay, well, i did it, question i have though, and that is is there a certain way to clean off bleeding paint that runs down the tail lights on my truck. I got some extra on the body, from when it bled, i used elbow grease, not sure if there is something i can do to clean it off.

Try some lacquer thinner but dont go crazy with it or youll take your paint with it. other than that there is not much you can do unless you want to wet sand it down off being careful not to go through the clear on your paint job than polish the paint smooth again. Next time try harder getting the tails out, they are just held in with 4 screws.

not sure how to remove excess paint run from Night-Shade,
but you rear tails should come off
with 1 screw from tailgate down access
and 2 screws from the outside,
now just WIGGLE loose

Buy a spray can of "wax remover", its used to prep a surface before you paint, Its at autozone, advanced, etc. Ive used it to remove spray paint from my truck body before. Spray, wipe hard with a towel and it should come right off, rinse the body down after to remove the chemicals

haha, it worked too. I saw avid. of a guy who had some PAINT on his truck, removed it with turtle wax rubbing compound, did a decent job, looked much better afterwards.

----------

and EMT< I'd like to clean it before i take any pics. In all seriousness, it was a dumb move

----------

Thank you Decepticon
