Did you just paint them on the car? Or can they be popped off the car? Get them sprayed when they are off the car??

Do you have any pictures of it when it's finished? How did you get them out of the bumper?

Where your reflectors are at. The top part of the bumper is flexible. With a flat head screwdriver push the bumper up and u will see the reflector pop out a bit. Make sure u wrap the flat head with a cloth so that u dnt scratch your bumper.

I was debating between those colors as well.. I just went ahead and did the black since it was faster to get a hold of. Good luck and take your time and do it properly. Any other questions feel free to ask
