Hey whatup? Painting the tail lights is easy. First, pop your trunk (duh!) Second Remove the tail lights housing, and then remove each bulb (remember where each one goes!) Third, I personally taped over the 2 Circles multiple times with masking tape. Fourth, Sand down the area to be painted with super fine grit sand paper. Finally apply paint desired and possibly a small coat of clearcoat. I did mine in black and they came out great, check out the pic :)

How are the Taillights connected? I have never even looked. Are they screwed on? molded on? How would they be put back on of they are glued on...

they are screwed in, you have to move the carpet and its 3 or 4 screws i dont remember its not hard, the screws may be that ford hex key thing i dont remember, if you still need help i'll go out and look at them for you.

So painting the lights wouldn't be that big of a deal?? I thought you had to seal them up or something... or do you?
