I'm pretty sure that was what was on them when I removed them (aka -
previous owner crash damage repair) - it's not too bad when the car sits in
the sun for a while, like removing a windshield from a Type 43. I'll let
you know if I ever do a "Faux-V8" convertion on the ol'5ktq, and have to
remove the rear corner lights.
