    I did this a few weeks ago, easy peasy. On lighter colored trucks this and the pinch-weld mod are the two easiest mods for the most bang for your buck.

    If you want to get the fogs apart, that is the only way as far as I'm aware. You can't bake the fogs to get them apart like the headlights.

    Both mods are very simple, with way more time spent on prep than time spent on spraying. I used rubberized undercoating on the pinch weld, and Plasti-Dip for the sleeve. Both are subtle, but aesthetically pleasing.
