Took 6.25 hrs!!!!!!!!!!!! After I found a tip on here stating "just pry the bottom apart first, then get the rest really hot then just peel it off with some elbow grease......"

Before that, it took me 2 hrs to get the first light apart.......and I wish I could have waited to clean the inside better before I re-attached and siliconed them back up..........

AND WHO EVER THOUGHT TO PUT THAT ONE BOLT ALL THE WAY UP AND UNDER THE FENDER NEEDS TO BE CANED!!!!

I know you only have to do it once, but my goodness.........but they look really cool........and I know they attract a more sporty attention to your ride, especially with just the fogs and running lights on......looks mean coming up behind people............now everyone wants to race.


By the way, a cool side effect is the lenses now have a cool slight chameleon effect to them, that you can only see in the sunlight, sweet....

Yea that bolt is a pain... also the person who designed that Crome grill that comes with all the 05 foci except the ST's needs to be CAN'd as well..

Here are my results. Instead of blacking them out i painted them with the matching color of my car. Was hard to find but worked out well. Let me know what you think.

Angry

I went and bought the stuff to do this mod, and then got started and quit while trying to get that damn bolt off inside the fender. Did you guys use a 10mm wrench or a socket set? I couldn't get to it with the socket wrench. I guess I'll purchase a 10mm wrench and try again.
