it will MELT the plastic that the lights are made from.

the plastic used for making the lights is pretty much the only thing that you cant use Lacquer thinners on

Remove it all.

Most likely you'll be taking more than just the clear off when you sand, so you'll want to reapply the VHT anyway.

sorry for the wrong info Pete, this is where I got it from: http://www.cacustomcoatings.com/vhtnishfaq.html

Q: How do I remove VHT Nite Shades Lens Tint?

A: Usually a little lacquer thinner on a clean lint free cloth will take it off. If the tint is more than 3 months old, it may be baked into the surface and normally will not come off.

Did you do any polishing/buffing to them? This will make it much more glossy as right now you just have the spray from the can.
