Water Damaged Grid Style Taillights

Hello, I was wandering if anyone has had this problem with their Honeycomb/Grid-Style taillights. I bought some from a junk yard and really need to know if there is way to fix it. Because it turned from black to an ugly grey. So I was thinking of taping off each clear box and Nite-Shading the bars to make them look black again. Think that would be a good idea??

Re: Water Damaged Grid Style Taillights

Its caused by the grid piece delaminating from the clear lense. They are 2 different pieces. Your can't fix it. You can try to paint or nightshade them back, or just nightshade the entire lense.

Re: Water Damaged Grid Style Taillights

I had a pair that were delaminated. I busted all the grid out if the lense, taped my own honeycomb pattern inside and painted the inside black. The thread is here somewhere. Do a search for "custom" T/A tail lights.
