The inner and outer lids are glued together, and thus not easy to separate.
Just remove the outer reflector, then tape up the inner lid.
If you're really OCD, you can slip the tape in between the inner and outer lids right at the edge, then let them paint right up and over that edge.
It'll turn out just fine.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
