So did the DIY tail lights, they fine except I know I scratched my tail light underneath...its gonna look like shit when they vinyl eventually wears out and needs to be replaced. FYI for future red out folks....buy the precut ones and do not take an exacto knife to your tail light, chances are you will cut your light!!!

Any one know any way to minmize the effect of a knife blade in tail light? :shakehead

Can you explain procedure? Been looking online but all applications are for car paint. Higher grit = higher number? any particular number?
