If Mike can't successfully remove those taillights in tact, I have a thought. If these have taillight panels similar to the AMT Dirty Donnie Chevy, there is an easy solution. Foil the indentions and use clear red on acetate or any other spare flat clear plastic.
Ended up doing something similar. Foiled then flowed in tinted resin. Only, I forgot the back up lights.:-(
