Default Replacing the eye tail light

I need to replace the back "eye" taillight bulb, what do I need to unscrew to access it? Also, could you link me with the custom lighting tutorial that demonstrates how to make your tail light appear to say Bonneville?

Oh I thought you had to remove the panel

I know it'* a custom job, hoping someone would chirp in with a post. This is the one custom job I might like to do to my car after getting it back to factory condition

You mean making your taillight say "Pontiac?" "Bonneville" could be hard to get in your taillight piece. Talk to BillBoost37. He'* made a few of them.
