Thanks, seems easy enough. I think it looks good. Did you mask off your car and paint your taillights with them still installed or did you take your taillights off and pain them that way?

I had taken off my taillights to replace the bulbs with SMD LEDs but I had never managed to remove the taillights. I would remove the bolts holding the lights in and unhook all the light bulbs to get the taillight assembly to separate from the wiring and bulbs?
