Re: Preventing paint chipping when tightening screws

Doesn't matter what paint you use. If you have a thick substrate ( surfacer) it will chip out if it's too thick.

Building surfacers are part of the prep mentioned above. Excessive will chip.

Re: Mounting a second Rear drum light

The left should be an exact mirror of what you have on the right. Not rocket science. Can you remove the existing light to see how it's fastened. Type of fasteners should tell you what's back there.
