Painting inside of clear taillights?

Is it possible to separate the cover off the clear taillights to paint them? This is what I had in mind. Not really these, but just clear taillights in general.

I wanted to paint the area around the red peices to match the body color (orange) so it would kinda blend with the body.

Should work just make sure not to get the reflective surfaces, and probably be best to start with the black background.
