yes, you want to get most of it out, so you don't have any gaps, thats lets moisture in....and don't be like me. Wear gloves so you don't get those fingerprints inside the lenses...once I got prints of that new silicone in it, it would not clean like it was.........

and enjoy the chameleon look when the lights are not on, its sweet.

Are you guys find a glossy black or a satin black looks better. I am thinking about going with either flat black or satin black on my cd silver?

Well I ended up going with a satin black and it came out great. They look as if they were oem parts. One of my favorite mods so far.

I used the Krylon Fusion gloss black, and it came out looking more like a satin black color. I was going to throw a few coats of clear gloss on it, but the satin finish really lookes nice.
