Who knows how to take off the lil orange lights

Ok i just ordered some Nightshades and the main thing i want to shade is my grill lights and the 2 side orange lights. Ive heard that the 2 side lights come off by unscrewing screws on the opposite side of the bumper is this true with the regular ZX3 bumper? Ive looked a little at the grill lights and it seems like that comes off by some nuts but i know one of you guys have done this before and i dont want to mess up anything or have to mask them off when i shade um

I've tossed my grille for a Euro one, but if memory serves, I don't believe your front turn signal lights will separate from the grille.

Regarding side marker lights, you are on the right track. There are two little nuts that actually scor threads onto some plastic posts. You'll see what I mean when you take them off.

The Turn Signals on the side of the bumper?

They come off by to 1/2" bolts behind them.

The ones in the grille?

They are actually part of the grille. You will have to tape off the parts you dont want to niteshade.

The whole grille comes out with 4 10mm bolts. There are two on each side, one set is lower and you have to take off the plastic radiator cover to get to them (it just uses 3-4 plastic "screws" that you pull out then remove the cover).

^^^^ exactly, it's very simple, just follow the actual grill, look and see how it's connected on. Should be easy once you get under the hood. I have taken mine out before a couple times, not to bad.

Yeah, if I can take out the grill and side lights then you can too!

Trust me.
