Default Using a dremel to make 06+ tail lights fit a 99?

I picked up some 06 tail lights. There's 2 holes, I have 3 bulbs. I've heard about the wiring thing you can do to change it to a 2 bulb setup, but I've also heard about drilling out a 3rd whole. Anybody done this? How hard was it?

I have a basic power drill, but I also have a dremel.. wonder which would work better. Also, I'm asuming after I hack the shit out of the inside, it's going to look pretty rough, but will it still look normal from the outside?

dremel out the third hole under the reverse light, and just wedge the socket in there, thats what i did with the 06 tails i put on my 96, and it looks fine, that part of the lense is faceted so you cant really see into it
