And thanks.
that would mean taking your trunk handle off. there's no way to take out only the license plate lights. it will not fit. just use some LED bulbs man. less work lol

there's nothing then lol maybe use sandpaper? i find that taking off the black part doesn't even make it that much brighter. it's barely noticeable unless you have some cheap LEDs or something

ill try sandpaper. i have some pretty decent lights in there right now, but it seems like the output is lacking, i figured it was the black piece. ill play with some other ones i have laying around. those whole replacement housings are ridiculous for the price, i feel good spending 2 bucks on the festoon bulbs on ebay lol
