Average Install Time...

About how long does it take to install a set of tail lights?

Is it something I can start at about 9pm in my garage on a work night? Or should I wait for the weekend?

That fast eh? Probably take me at least 30 minutes then since I'm a n00b and installing stuff smile

The hard part for me is getting the damn plastics off and back on. It might be alittle tricky because I have a sub box that I've never tried moving (it's custom built over the bump where the strut brace would go).

I might give it a shot tonight then if it really is a quick process once the plastics are off.

Ummm you dont have to take any plastics out. Just undo the three screws that hold the light in. The one at the top is alitle tricky, but you'll get it in no time.

My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

Oh really? You must have have had a really small wrench or something to get to that one bolt. Was that your FIRST time to install tail lights? Also looks like a pain to get the bulbs out with the plastics there.

Did it in like 15 minutes, yuor guaranteed to cut your hands up if you don't talk off the sidewall plastics. Becareful not to drop the top screw when taking it out though. I dropped mine and fished around with a magnet and got t right out.
