    it's becoming like that almost everywhere. I can barely roll around in my Blazer (finally ordered in shocks and took out the chains), they look for ANY "irregular jiggling" in ANYTHING on wires. :( Good thing I have a safety kill switch for my set-up. Also it's getting to the end of the yr. holidays are JUST around the corner, so it's that time of the yr. is all I guess.

    Have you tried just removing the VHT with paint thinner? Worked for me in the past.

    I just used a microfiber towel and rubbed it until it came off. It wasn't the quickest, but it worked. I had to polish it with some plastic polish and clearcoat it to get it shiny again though.

    I've also heard that Goof Off works really well, but I haven't tried it myself. Another method I've also heard works, is to spray more night shades on and wipe if off while it's still wet. I would think if that worked though, that it would take several coats.

    I think paint thinner or Goof Off is your best bet. You can get Goof Off at Home Depot.
