Nightshade Question

thanks to another member here [5speedin2.3] I got some 06 tails that he nightshaded, since I wanted the reverse light still to be clear I was goin to just sand off all the old night shade and redo it while taping off the reverse light. But I thought I could maybe save some time if i just removed the nightshade from the reverse light. And now I'm running into a little problem, I can't get all the nightshade off around the edges of the reverse lights, any tips?

Here's a crappy phone pic, I did my third brakelight too BTW, a few coats of nightshade, some 1500-2000 grit sanding, few coats of clear and waiting to be polished up with rubbing compound so i can get it uber glossy



you can see around the curves of the corners of the reverse lights is where i'm having trouble getting it all removed and still maintaining sharp edges

I mentioned that the tails were nightshaded previously by someone other than me, that's why I'm doing this now
