Great write up. I think it took longer to put the painters tape around the gill than it took to replace pop them out and replace.

worked with gorilla tape, I find if you angle and pull the tape somewhat upwards it works better.

Did this last night. It took 5 minutes and was as easy as stated, great write up.
Although I ended up doing the drivers side twice because my painters tape got caught under the newly installed gill. The tape tore off and left a very thin, visible strip of painters tape that required a second removal and re-installation. I didn't even use painters tape on the passengers side. Didn't need it in my mind.
