Default My tail light alteration

I opened them up like everyone is doing, but I painted the red plastic inside with a black shade. So the outside hasnt been touched. I dont like how they get after a while. If you look at where the camara flash is, the reflection is red at night.

Anyways I have to get new ones since those look nasty. They have bubbles all over.
This is how they used to be.

I only did that one. Since they all look nasty, Im not spending the time. I just wanted to know if I could do it. Im ordering new ones as soon as the car is painted & then Ill doit.
So if someone wants to do it & take pics. Make it a blue car.
