After getting my rear window tinted i noticed the ghetto ness of my third brake light’s tan color in contrast to the beautiful black tint. So i decided to paint it. Extremly simple to do, took more time letting the paint dry than anything else.
First i disconnected the wire leading to the brake light.
Second i pushed up on the clips to simply free the lamp housing from its place, then i removed it from inside the cabin.
Third I removed the lightbulb, to make sure it wouldnt break and then pulled back on the clips near the center of the arc to remove the lamp from the housing.
Fourth I used scotch tape to tape off the “leather” from the plastic as a prep for the next step of saran wrapping all that i didnt want to get painted (i used tape to hold this down as well.
Sixth step was to take it outside, clean it with soap and put it onto a trash bag for painting.
Then i laid down a two coats of spray waiting 10 minutes between each coat and then 20 minutes after the last so it would dry to touch.
^^^^^ Final Product and how it looks now inside the car^^^^
