craig if you need pointers hit me up ok?
I appreciate it. Your nightshaded reflectors and turn signals look great! I have been doing my research and making some phone calls to some friends with knowledge for the past week and some change. Found out that Ford uses a adhesive called Permaseal, its super strong and takes a lot of patience to remove it properly. Its looking like I am gonna have about $500-$600 invested in my little project.

Edit: Power Surge- I appreciate the insight! I was told the adhesive melts to liquid at about 500 degrees, so getting it softened is gonna be fun.

Chaddz3- I appreciate the info. I did a projector retrofit to my last vehicle (2007 Chevy Equinox), so I found out the hard way how you can blow a BCM.
