Default Tail light Red-out

I got these. I want as authentic look as possible, but am not spending money on lights until my mechanicals are sorted out. It seems like they have a chance of looking good. Price was right.

btw- what's the story on the yellow vinyl mask on the front indicators?

Can't you just heat them up w/a blow dryer and peel them off?

Well the OEM front indicators (for the US) are yellow, so nothing to peel off. If someone did put yellow vinyl on them, you can heat them up and peel it off. I would be careful about doing it on the car though.

No, it's actually a amber film applied over the polycarb, I checked it out. I don't want to mess with it now, but if someone has an extra housing, and wants to try heat-n-peel, I'd love to hear how it worked.
