Question How do I tape off reverse light for Nightshading?

Deleted question.

EDIT: PICS BELOW!



Ok guys, I finished!
I put painters tape on, shined a light through the holes and cut it out with a pocket knife.

Thanks for everyone's input!

Yeah, Ive got it done now. They are drying.

About the third time Ive redone them lol


I put painters tape across the reverse lights, got a flashlight and shined it through the underside where the 2 holes are and traced and cut off excess.

Looks like sex now! WOO!
Pics soon!

why dont you try to get some vinal circles made the size of the reverse light they should peel off easy after you night shade. Just a thought.

Here's a beter way. Lay some masking tape on a clean table. Guess you would need like two or three strips of it, lay them next to each other so it's approxamite the size of the reverse light. Now, get a protractor and measure from the middle to the edge of the reverse light. I hope u know how to use one. Then draw the circle on the layed tape and cut it with scissors, peel off from table and place on light. Violà
