Can the plastics on the outside of the rear light be removed or is it embedded on so well that cracking it and ripping it off is the only way?

Got a spare set but i dont want to trash them unneccesarily.

I am sure they come away. There is the dodgy lexus light job can be done on them, but it means no reflector on them

Need more mods, any ideas?

thanks guys. What im hoping to try and accomplish would be the removal of the colour i.e lexarse lights style but to actually keep the outer layer.

If i could seperate it i would rub the colour down (if possible) so it was clear and stick it back on.

Lexarse lights without the difference between body work and shell. Would then proceed to tint them whatever colour.

the outer lenses are "through coloured" when you see one smashed, so you wont be able to rub down the colouring off them.

and if you've seen a set of standard lights with the outer lenses removed, you would probably agree that they are extremely ugly mothers underneath and you wont want it on show!

moral of the story is dont spoil your nice arse by monkeying with the standard lights! IMHO the best look for mk2 is red tint the standard ones or get tinted lexarses. trouble is with red tinting the standard ones is they look so old fashioned these days, the lexarses with a tint bring the mk2 rear into the 21st century.
