    Color matched grill w/ grillcraft. BHLM and Morimoto Mini HID's Debadged.
    As I'm attempting a HID retro and BHLM this weekend, I want to make sure i've got all the tools and parts (and beer) i need before starting.

    I've only found one posting on the size of the torx screw and it was "#7 I think".

    Can anyone confirm this size for me? I have a 15 and 20 and tried to eyeball them while the lights were still mounted last night but couldn't get close enough to the torx to tell.

    At Advanced Auto, you can buy a 'loaner' set of tools. They sell you the whole kit at sticker price, and when you return it, you get a full refund. If you don't return it, you keep the set. The local store here does it, not sure if it's the same for all but it's good to know if you only need a specific tool for a one-time task.

    Cool, thanks, I'm going to take back the $30 kobalt screwdriver set I had to buy to get the T-7 then. Sheesh. Every torx set, drill bits or just plain drivers didn't have T-7, I had to get this massive one to get the T-7.
