Tail light bezel removal and painting DIY

Ok, so I've seen several vids posted here on how to just remove the tail light bezels, but nothing really on sanding them down and/or painting them, so I decided to help out a little and make a few short videos on the whole process. Hope this helps some of you guys out if you're on the fence on deciding if you want to tackle this project! Total cost of sandpaper and paint was only about $14, the most time-consuming was definitely the sanding, as I'm extremely particular about how the end-product will look. As always, patience is your best friend when it comes to doing things yourself. Don't stress, and take your time! You'll enjoy the end result that much more, knowing you saved yourself some hard-earned money!

I'll be sure to add some more once I get them installed later this afternoon!
