Much thanks!

So paint the back side of the taillights to get rid of that nasty white line around to lights.

See now I aleays just thought it was just whatever glue was used to hole the taillights together.

Definitely doing this on mine, pretty simple and looks 100 times better.

Mr Green, is there a trick to getting the gray connector between the 2 bulbs out? Do you just pull or is the something you have to push down? I don't want to bust it.



Edit: nvm just twist, dumbass

I went to hobby lobby...they have a lot of different type of brush's...
I used one that was thin but stiff/strong brush-end and also had a reasonable long brush-end too...I bought three...only used 2...

The little brush on the paint touch up bottles you can buy should be good enough as well I would think.

So I gave it a try, and my God, what a difference!!!

I always hated that line of cheap white plastic. To me it looked like the glue that held the housing and lens together, Happy I could make it blend.









And here is a little bit better "How-To"

Different How-To.

No offense intended to OP.
MrGreen33, Blind1 and Brute4s like this.
