If you did open them, did you use a similar method to open them?

That looks great. Do you have any tips for masking off the unpainted portion?

just to be careful to make sure all lines are straight. if you look at the lense, it pretty much has lines there to follow. use a razor to trim the tape (carefully)

Finally done with my mods! It took me along time because of other things.

The write up is on my original post on the first page. If you have any questions please ask. Enjoy!

This is awesome - Great job at tackling this mod; definitely something I'd be willing to attempt!! Quick question; do you have an pictures of the solenoid wiring into the harness? Just curious to see which pins/wire color you used?

Thanks for posting this!!
