Did anyone risked opening their tail lights,and painting it?

I've been doing a lot of custom tail light jobs for the genesis coupe world,but im planning on working on the elantra,So i already know they are not glued like the head lights,i use a dremel to open all my tail lights,you actually have to cut into the cassing,and not the lens...

Anyways,anyone has picture of opened or painted tails? (blackout)

I don't remember hearing anyone going this route and I know I wouldn't have the gumption to undertake such a project but it sounds interesting. Do you have any pics of some of the other taillight jobs you've done? I'd be interested to see a few examples if you do! A few have blacked out their lenses on the exterior, but that is all I remember seeing. Member "peterjamesbenson" is one that I recall that has blacked out his taillights.

Yeah interested in pics. I've always just used VHT niteshade and then polished the tails after to blackout my tails.

Much better this way because in a way you dont reduce the visibility of the lights,so no problems with the autorities.
And i never really liked vht or film they dont last as long.

I does take guts to cut into a pair of light that are Worth 400$++





the first one is from a 2013 genesis coupe with leds,and the other is a 2010-2012

Nice work.
I'm also interested in the process.

The Touring's tail lights could use some help.
