Holy crap is this thing a pita to install or is it just me?

I bought the clear alternatives tail light. Figured I have to pull the tail section so I start to take it apart. I notice I need to take off the side covers, they are freaking 2 sided taped on???

I looked around for a how to and couldn't find one. Anyone have any advice on the easiest way to install this thing??

did you use the rubber grommets from the factory taillight if it didnt come with the clear alternatives. i have the smoked one from C.A. and i like it. was a little bit of a PITA.

Well I'm a idiot there is a rubber piece that goes above the taillight. I took the tail off the rubber piece fell on the ground and then it clicked. It's all good now!!
