I think looking at the lights on the car you pictured, the red portion is either on the inside of the lens or most likely the red is painted on the inner plastic diffuser. The highlights on the ribs of the lights in that image are white (indicating that the lens has no color) and the red seems to be inside of the clear lens outer if that makes any sense. It also seems like it may have a transparent black on top of the red to make it darker.

The VHT paint is easy enough to remove with denatured alcohol, so I think you can take another stab at this.

These things are super hard to get apart... baaa. But the good news is I may need this outline on the inside.

NH-503P-3 is cool... so far.
Ya know what John, the taillights in the pic don’t have the top diffusers in them either. Only on the bottom. That’s why the horizontal lines are more visable. Or maybe none of the diffusers are in. Now that I’ve taken a second look.

All good. We are in unchartered waters here. All corners are intact. I feel like this is an impossible task; everything fights you the whole way with these cheap things... (sarcasm....)

- heat it up to melt that stuff but not the other stuff. Repeat until you're just on the edge of melting the wrong stuff. yep.
- push on this plastic tab just hard enough to make it give without physically breaking it. Oh, is it hot enough? X 10
- *crack sound*.. SHIT! something cracked... find the crack, find the crack. ahhh err, no crack. Continue on.
- pry on screw driver... noope to soon.

OK. One light done.

Oh man, I know the cracking sound you’re talking about also. It’s not cool. Thankfully I did not hear that sound putting my headlights back together. Tail lights however are a different story they seem to be way more brittle and prone to break. Good luck bro. I cracked my extra tails a few times getting the outer lenses off.
