Yes. And the harness hugs close to the assembly and trunk lid. Not worried about trunk lid. And okay that's a material to consider for sureFor simple heat resistance to a area home HVAC foam back aluminum will work, any Home Depot, Menards etc has material in the HVAC department. Mounting them to a some type of frame support / bracket that has open air, trunk and front end, upstream away from the elements is a option as they do not need to be next to the light sockets just in the harness to the lights.
Usually you would mount the resistors to a metal plate (acts as an additional heat sink) & then mount the plate to something. If the plate has to attach to plastic, use a few standoffs (aka spacers) between the metal and the plastic to allow an air gap-- 1/4" should work. As previously mentioned, you don't want the resistors to be in direct contact with anything else--as you already know, they ARE heaters, so treat them as such.
