    Yeah man that looks good. Now it's a matter of do it now, or wait until I do the retro fit as well. Pulling the headlights apart twice would be a pain in the ass

    Nice!!!! How'd you take of the front clip? It's the one on the front toward the center. I had a hard time taking that off.. After hours trying to figure it out I decided to call it quits. I can get to the nuts but not the clip or some sort of lock. If i have time, ill take a pick to show you what Im referring to. LOL


    Anyways looks good bro!!! :cheers:

    Just kidding man. Looks great! My only suggestion would be to paint he Chrome Surround on your grill to match the rest of the front.

    Yup... If you are planning on doing a retro I would suggest doing it all at once. The hardest part (other than convincing yourself to put them in the oven) is pulling the lens. After that everything else is cake.

    Thanks all! The chrome on the grill is coming soon! As for the clip mine just pulled straight out only thing is you have to make sure that you get the bolt that's on the bottom side close to the fender its a major PITA to get to but it should just pop straight out when u get it removed...

    Looks good man.

    Now that my DTRL's have melted my stuff, thinking of doing this
    too...but how do you get the bumper cover off?...

    I've removed all fasteners except those clips under the front
    of the wheel wells...could not figure how to unclip those?

    Are they those half turn types, or a different style push rivet?

    Any help is appreciated.

    They are half turns I had a little trouble with those myself and u also have to remove the trim from under the light housing itself the end close to the grill pops straight out then u have to pull it towards the grille and it slides off. That bolt is hard to get to you probably won't be able to see it just feel behind the fender well and u will feel an arm that goes across from the bottom of the light to the fender on the end of that arm is a nut about an inch above that nut u will feel the bolt head once you remove that bolt it should pop striaght out. ( the nut dosent have to be removed just the bolt above it)
