does anyone know how to get them apart and will they seal again or will they fill with moisture. I want to do something similar to this.

thanks to whoever posted that picture in the gallery, I really like that car.

After looking at the lights it appears that they are put together in a similar fashion as the Toyota Tacoma headlights. Those I have had apart and painted the chrome inside a black. The biggest trick it to heat them up not to much. What most of the Tacoma bunch (me included) is pre-heating the oven to 300 degrees and then shutting it off. Stick the light in there for 10 minutes take it out and find a corner to start at pulling apart slowly and gently. If it feels like it won't even budge you might have to put it back in the oven for a little while longer. I've done 4 sets of the Tacoma headlights and once you get through the first set the rest are a breeze. I will give it a try on the Fusion tail lights (I do hate the chrome look) as soon as I can get my hands on an extra one at a reasonable price, that way if I do screw it up I can still drive the car. My have to check around the junk yards to see if there are any crashed fusions with good tail lights.
