Tail lights

Hey I want to paint the chrome taillights black and I see the 2 nuts. I removed them and tried prying the light out on the lift gate but won't come out. The ones on the corner are easy. Is there something I'm missing?

There are two more bolts behind the interior trim panel on the rear hatch that you have to remove to get the inside tail lights off.
