    I guess your time is real expensive.. I will put in the what? 2 hours maybe removing the tint. Your gonna waste more looking for a set, then assuming you find them, wait for shipping, remove the old ones, install the new. Now I am not going to go into the aggravation of selling stuff, done enough of it.. so I think what you are suggesting is alot more work, time and aggravation, been there and done that!

    Taillights are EASY to swap. Inner trim panel, then nuts (10mm) holding them to the car, Unplug from the harness and they are out. Swap the mini light harness over and reverse. Probably take all of an hour. Done.

    Then you can sell the old ones, or not. You could round can them. Futzing around with the whole deal to polish them clean which may or may not work. What's the polish kit cost? What do you value your time at? And what if the polishing doesn't work or works just so-so? What if it's not like OEM and that's your goal? Aggravation for doing this is also a factor to be considered. The net sum of all that, for me, is just swap in clean OEM lights. OP can try what ever he likes and you can polish all you want. That's fine either way. I'm just suggesting a different way.

    I even found a tutorial.

    Hey Guys,
    I certainly didn't think this would be controversial and didn't want it to be. Let's remember we are here because we like Mustangs and have that in common.
    I have a rule for meetings at work: "We talk about things, not people." Maybe that would serve us well here.
    I do appreciate all of the suggestions. Peace.:igiveup:

    And as far as the lights go, I would do new. And be just fine w/$150 for the pair. But thats just me.
    Ps: just got new front turnsignals. My left one has moisture and the reflector is fucked.

    Personally I would just go to the yard and pick the stock ones off the car and start over. That or look around offerup/craigslist. I still have mine that are in great shape that I swapped for some Gen 5 raxioms. Could sell 'em to you lol.
