    Started putting the '01 parts on today. Still need a hood, can hopefully get that ordered tomorrow. Putting the headlights in is a bigger PITA than I thought it was going to be. Had to completely tear out the old bracket and put in one of my own

    However I have these nasty gaps between my headlight and parking light. I don't know how to get rid of them

    The old parking lights won't fit because the mounting scheme changed in 2001-2004. Still thinking of how to solve this :confused:
