So i have a 93 with the euro style tailights. Im thinking about stuffing them in the oven at 200 and pulling them apart to Take Out the red and amber filters to kind of give it a newer look. I also wanna clean em out. Has anyone ever done this before? And if you have do you have any pictures or recomendations?

First time for everything, Open one of them up and see what your options are. I am sure it would be a straight uo job. They remove in a snap. Could do the complete mod in an afternoon.

It's not failure, It is old weathered lenses that will crack, Shatter etc... Keep it going. You could always look for a set of rear tails and go from there. Slowly but surely.
