    I painted the outside of my taillights but it looks kind of cheap so I want to open them up and do the inside. Do I use the same process as the head lights?

    Won't work. The lenses are tinted red, and it'll just look funny. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    Oops! Sorry, I should've checked that...:( The whole light, or just the center? Because I thought it was just the center that was clear.

    No you cannot open them up the same way as the headlights...or at all really. They aren't constructed in the same manner and they with break if you try

    No problem, the whole lense is clear.
