    Finally did my first mod this morning with some help from the guys on the forum, ChrisNJ's write up, and a bit of toying. Next is new tires with some grip and a grill. That pesky third screw everyone mentions was a pain! Ended up removing part of the inner wheel well plastic piece and crawled up under to reach it, in my opinion is the only way since there's really no room up front to wiggle in there. Took about an hour and managed to get all the screws back in including that third one. Here's a pic (sorry the sunlight is bad out front, and the garage is filled with my other toys). Zach

    Nice!
    I'm getting ready to try this as well...found a set of stockers to use...
    There is a thread on headlight removal with pics that explains the procedure for removing the "fourth" screw...
    any leaks in the lights yet? what did you use to seal?

    I copped out and went the route of purchasing the revotec ones (all the members have had no issues with leaks) about $150. That 3rd screw is a b*tch, I would recommend removing the bottom two screws at on the inner wheel well piece and pulling it back, gives you plenty of room to reach up in there. Ya I used ChrisNJ's thread with the pictures, he shows you the screw but not really how to get to it, so I had to figure that part out. Let me know if you need some help and I can take pics of the screws from the piece I pushed back to get to it. Good luck!
