    i am getting ready to do the bhlm, and i noticed that some people have lights with no orange whatsoever. it seems they did this by removing the orage side reflectors in the lights and doing something to the turn signals. does anyone have any pics or tips on how to do the bhlm without having any of the orange stuff in the lights?

    OP, both are easily removed when you take the lights apart.

    buy the egay lights just for the clear parts!...no seriously, thats what you have to do now. FYI also, they fit slightly different, so you still have to mod them to fit better.

    push the clips from behind. You should be able to push those suckers w/o having to pry it from the front.

    That's how I removed the reflectors, but doesn't seem so easy putting them back in after I've painted the bezel. Almost temped to just remove the tabs and use a small amount of epoxy to secure them back in.

    ohhhh, lol. I totally misread that. Yea, thats definitely not the way to reinstall them. I dont have any tricks for that. I just placed mine in gently and hoped for the best.
