    Does anyone know a way to remove krylon fusion from the chrome plastic bezel? I'm thinkin I should have left a little chrome around the parking lights on the outer edge of the headlight.

    I've tried acetone and rubbing alcohol. The acetone worked great but also ate some of the chrome paint off. Alcohol did nothing. I painted an tried to remove it on an old camry headlight, not my taco. I'm not that dumb ;)

    Thanks in advance.

    I am beginning to think the small area around the orange bulb would look better chrome.

    I think once you strip the black paint the chrome will come off with it... I prepped my bezel with rubbing alcohol and it took the chrome off so watch out..
