Before you put the silicone on did you peel off the old rubbery sealant crap?

This thread has inspired me to do this to my 2010 Focus SE....ive always wanted the SES look with the black/grey headlight and tail light look. So now the tail lights are in the oven and hopefully they turn out ok :) great right up tho!

Dang dude. I did this to my 07 and it was horrible. It looks sick but its not sealed at all. And the lense didnt pop back into place on top. Its pretty sketchy as it sits. I dont know what i'm going to do. I wish mine would have turned out as good as yours.
