    Is the paint, car body paint? If so, then check a body shop.

    If its paint out of a hardward store, try "goof-off" paint remover (but don't leave it on the lens to long).

    I sure there has to be some solvent out there. If not your other option is to remove them and sand them lightly until you revome the paint off. then use finer sanding paper to polish them. What kinda of dummy does this? lol unless the just wanted to black them out.

    +1 on this if it is can spray paint the goof off will work fine. I used that product with great results.

    Im guessing its car paint bc when i bought the car it had a fresh paint job but they must have forgotten to cover the fog lights. Im wanting to go the cheaper alternative though so i guess its finding some paint remover that works or sanding it. I found this on LS1tech.com does any of yall know if these will fit on a camaro

    Bodyshop laziness FTL. They should have taped off the fogs BEFORE painting the car.
