Dirt and insects in rear reflector

Any suggestions whAt I can do to get rid of dirt and insects which are stuck inside the clear rear deflector?
I did notice a while back black stickers which cover it all up! Any ideas if these are still available?

Look for the vinyl strip that covers it. There's a seller on this forum I think.

Haha seen my car there and was confused for a second wondering what thread I opened.

You can take the lights out and clean out the insides too by the way.

haha sorry

Is it easy to open up though? I can't see a way in?

Is the tint on the reflectors from sumo? Does your car still look like above and is it weathering ok?

cheers

There are how to's on getting the lights out. Have a search around.

The centre panel gloss black panel was from Cazza on this forum, the tint on the rest of the lights is Spi Vision. I just done them recently though so no sign of wethering... yet!
