me too, that is what i want. i want the pink strip to be white. the best looking tails are the 03 cl with the white at the top and the rl lights, both just have red and white. i wish someone would make tails like these for us, maybe with led.

really that is very odd. i've had mine on for about 8 months and it is STUCK on my tails with no peeling at all. Oracal's adhesive is the strongest out there did you tuck the excess vinyl when u cut it? if anything just take it off and do the above to let me know if that degreser method works on clearing that pink strip, lol

oracal vinyl is good. But not the best. If put on it should last a good 3-4 years. It was just probably put on wrong and not trimed around the edges right.

it wont work! he is just showing you how to get them back to its original red/white condition. i guess after time, the white turns a little pinkish.

I think it will. cuz logically what is it that makes that stripe pink? it has to be some kind of paint or film which i doubt is anything permanent.

it won't work. thats more of making it back to white vs. turning it white.

some guy tried it on 6th gen accord and did NOT work.
