okay, so i was taking my tail light off to see how the install of the vinyls is gunna go. Wen i was putting them back on i accidentally broke the middle bolt, it just split in half like a piece of rubber or something, i was like wut the fudge. i thought it would be fine but now the light isnt sealing to the car so theirs a gap. Why does this always happen to me? i can do the performance stuff easilly but wen i try to do something with the looks of the car i get screwed.

i've taken my tails off a half dozen times and i dont even seen how it would be possible to damage the screws without smashing the light pretty hard. don't know what to tell ya.

i didnt smash anything i just tightenned it. the same damn thing just happened to the long bolt for the subwoofer and now im just about ready to do something that im gunna regret. i think my bolts were made of butter or something cuz ive never seen that happen b4, especially twice. or maybe im too strong.

Most people just put them on like a sticker on the outside of the taillight and don't take it apart. I thought about taking it apart to apply the vinyl to the actual orange piece but it goes out just as nice doing it the other way and its a hell of a lot easier.

cool thanx for the info. so its better to just leave the lights in. one more question, of the pics that ive seen i could not tell if the vinyl is wrapped around the rubber pieces that are around the edge of the light or if they are tucked into them.

The vinyl piece is just the size of the orange turn signal so it goes right over that and not a little past all around and thats it.
