DIY Painted Edges on Taillights Before DIY: After DIY: What is needed: 1.) 8mm or 5/16th socket or wrench 2.) Black paint 3.) Tiny brush 4.) Needle and a syringe 5.) WD-40 6.) Rags 7.) Razorblade *Overspill or having the paint on a surface not intended on the truck or light, do to operator error, can normally be removed with a small touch up of the almighty, WD-40. Step 1 Remove Taillights 1. Open Tailgate. 2. Each Taillight has Two 8mm (or 5/16) screws, that needs to be removed. 3. Pull tail light out. 4. Disconnect the taillight. Step 2 Pre-Paint Prep work 1. Clean tail lights with water and a cloth. 2. Inspect the inside edge of the taillight and look for excess glue that can impede the paint from bonding with the desired location. With a Razorblade, remove the excess glue from the inside edge of the taillight. 4. If needed, repeat step 1 after completing step 2, if excess glue was removed. Step 3 Paint Paint type: I Testors gloss black model enamel paint. Although a good Idea might be to use/try the FORD OEM touch up paint available at the local FORD dealer. 1. Use a tiny brush, with stiff bristles, to paint the inside of the taillights edge. (Rumor is that a syringe works best…problem is I am not sure how to get one…hehe) 2. Let the paint dry for a few hours, and repeat step one until to apply a second or third coat. 3. Let paint dry after the last coat…I left mine drying overnight.
