I removed the amber out of the tail, just leagaly they need to flash orange. Unfortunatily they don't snap out like the front, need to cut open and remove and silicone it back up, not really a big deal, search clear corners in 2000+ section for instructions



As for CAI, heres my Thrasher kit, to make fit needs some cutting and recomend thremal wrapping it. search clubgp.com for a used box.

Great pics! Thanks for the post.

I was looking at the rest of your pics on the link from your sig.

I noticed next to the right foglight was an intake...

I am assuming this runs up to your CAI. How hard was that to run?

Also, looking on clubgp.com I noticed a pic where a box was not used;

How much does the box affect the intake and can the stock box be modified?

Another Question: Head Lamp Removal

Ive seen a bunch of articles on here about headlamp removal, but I cant seem to get mine out.

I remove the 2 bolts on the top of the housing (1 long bold & 1 short one),
But it seems to be connected way back in the corner, I can pull the end out towards the center of the car, but that 1 corner towards the rear of the car just wont come loose.

Maybe I didnt pull hard enough because I didnt want to break it, but it seems almost like there is another bolt in there someplace that I cant see.

If anyone knows what I'm doing wrong, please let me know... I also apoligize since I know this topic has probably been talked about 100 times by now... just cant seem to find the right info to get it out. Thanks again for all the help everyone has given me. I'd be lost if not for this forum...

When you remove the two 10mm fasteners, pivot the headlamp out and pull hard. They are anchored with a ball and socket arrangement. They are hard to break loose I'll have to admit. Now you can do the electrical connectors disconnect.

i didnt try to pull too hard because I didnt want to break anything...

just remove the long bolt and the short bolt on the top of the assembly and yank it out?

I just want to make sure before I try to force something and break something stupid thats going to cost a few hundred...

Yank or pry out slowly from the anchor point. You'll probably break a few of the retainer plastic pieces but it will all go back together easily and be anchored by the 2 bolts. If you go slow it will be harder but you may not break any clips.
