      Jobs like that take patience, the right tool, and a spare in case it gets messed up. One tool I like to use for careful disassembly is this saw, It has no Kerf, meaning tooth offset, so the cut is as thin as possible. A saw with kerf will cut a slot wider than the saw material. I work the saw along a glue joint a little at a time and move on to another area without having gone through, and keep going around until it's through. One reason to work around a little at a time is to keep the plastic and tool from warming up too much. When plastic gets near the melting point; it grabs the tool.

      Ah, sounds fun. I will try and see if I can do it. I know that if I mess up and break the housing, only the entire taillight assembly is sold, and it runs into the 3-400$ range.

      On a happier note, I got my LED strips in the mail today and have stuck and glued them to the reflector and will wait until tomorrow morning for them to dry. After that, I'll wire them into the stop lamps.

      Do you all think that if I am to wire these LED strips into the stop lamp, with the stop lamps having these Sylvania ZEVO LED lamps rather than incandescents, the car will still throw a "CHECK STOP LAMP" error message? Previously, I tried to install the ZEVOs in place of the incandescents and received that "CHECK STOP LAMP" error message, and I realized I needed to install an in-line load resistor like this one. So, I'm wondering if installing these new LED strips alongside the ZEVOs will be enough resistance for the "CHECK STOP LAMP" error message to disappear for good? I know that I can just test it out tomorrow when I wire them into the brake light, but I'm not sure how the resistors will wire into the brake lamp once I tap into the wire for it for the LED strips.

      Thanks, everyone.
