Did you tape up to the edge of the reflector or did you try to tuck a bit of the tape into the edge?

zzzbullseye - Aw man, I should've checked on the forum beforehand. The paint got delivered today.

Thank you both!

Going to pick up the car from the body shop tomorrow. It got rear-ended but I took the opportunity to swap the stock bumper for the M-technic version. Hope that the body shop guys did a good job. New lip spoiler going on too. While the car was in their shop, I asked them how much to paint the reflectors and they wanted $350 to remove them and then paint/install. Crazy.
$350!? That's an "I don't really wanna do it, and if I do, you're gonna PAY" price! Good luck with the reflectors and congrats on the bumper/spoiler.
