Best way to clean the mold release and prepare the surface for paint?

I use denatured alcohol, and then Prep Sol from the local auto body supply house.

Thanks, Gary. Did you abrade the surface with anything like a Scotch Brite Pad?

The lights are our own design. We sell them as a complete kit for the CARF Corsair. Here are a couple pictures of what is included. Each color of LED has a different voltage. Each of our lights is regulated at the bulb for the the correct voltage to protect from an overvolt. The formation lights are built with special lenses of the correct color, in addition to the colored bulbs. We are not taking any orders until we get caught up with all existing orders. Another 2 or 3 weeks should clear out all outstanding orders for any of our offerings.
