    No, you do not. Just gotta have a decently long arm to reach up from the bottom and get the last bolt

    Just a tip. Get a swivel 10mm Gearwrench. Makes life a lot easier.
    And that trim under the headlight housing...It just pops out.

    I got the angel eyes LED and Halo lights. couldn't put 'em by myself. took it to a body shop. I'm very satisfied with the looks. but i dont like how they distribute the light. I re adjusted them yet still they dont do as good as the stock. But hey, i think they look good. I saved the stock ones just in case i get bored of the angel eyes.

    like everyone has been saying, there's only four bolts. the bottom bolt that's on the inside is the hardest one, it does come off with some flexible hands and patience
