Yeah I am waiting for it to get warmer out to put my new grill in. Hope to purchase the headlights from a coupe before hand so I can take care of the front all at one time.

Those headlights are EXPENSIVE - how about just blacking out the chrome on yours? It's a little work, but a heck of a lot cheaper!

Thanks again Brad!
Thanks, I enjoy playing with my car and sharing what I learn (or screw up). And I really like learning from everyone else here on FF.

Keep on moding
Brad

I am not that talented and I haven't found anyone close enough to me that has done it and can give me a hand. Because don't you have to take the headlights apart to do that and it really scares me to do that. Thats why I bought the coupe grill for my car so it was easier than messing up my factory chrome one trying to paint it.

Understood! It was interesting to say the least the first time I put a headlight in the oven.

Well, that couldn't have anything to due with the fact that you were doing it at 1:03 in the morning could it?

Holy crap I replaced my headlight bulbs with bright white ones and it was a pain in the arse!! I remember on my 93 Cougar you just reached in behind the housing and pulled the bulb out...was pretty easy. Everything is so packed in there with the Focus, so I guess it would be hard to leave an opening. Definitely not something I'm looking forward to doing again!
