I actually replaced them a few weeks ago. The mounting points were almost all broken on both. and I had to replace the bulbs anyway...

I am no expert in this field but my fiance works at a body shop. He says spring or summer time because the heat helps it dry/cure faster unless the body shop has a bake room. If not and it's done in the cold, some colors can become hazed. Red tends to be more expensive, too.Oh, and he said not to wax it for at least 90 days after because the silicone (in a lot of waxes) can mess up a fresh paint job. Plus it would bug me having a fresh paint job and not being able to show it off (too much salt and crud that blows up on the car here in winter).
Lol! Yeah, that is true. I bought my car right before winter but we had snow early. I didn't even notice how bad the clear coat issue really was until Spring, haha. It was completely off the roof and trunk lid.
