    Done. Skimming this previous thread and video was helpful.

    The light has one slotted area that slides onto the yellow plastic stud, there’s one stud that snaps into the gray opening, and then there are three 10mm nuts. Easy-peasy, but it's easy to drop a nut if you’re not careful. I didn’t do that, but I dropped a 10mm wrench into the abyss and had to take one of the lights back off to fish it out.

    I’ll take more pics in the daylight.

    daytime pics- I'm changing the toyota emblem background from black&blue to white, that's why the emblems are off the car.

    I made several "best offers," he finally accepted $360, so with shipping total was $400.

    I had also considered just updating to the newer version of the oem taillights, but even aftermarket ones were $300 a pair, so I thought this price wasn't that bad.

    Looks great! To which, gotta add LED-backlit lower reflectors!
