BTW.. to seal them up. I picked up a GE Silicone glue when I had planned on doing my corners. Pat used some to seal his headlight and said it worked great. I'll look when I get home to see what it was called.

It was just a miserable day, no photo shop other than the license plate being removed.

That looks hot on a white car. Could do without those circles in the center section though.

Good Job!

I'll be removing the amber from my tails once it gets warm out again, but that'* all. The red sections blend well with the black paint on mine.

Guys/Gals--

Cleared the headlights last weekend (post is in Detailng and Appearance) and will do the taillights this Saturday. I've read plenty of posts on it and know the procedure (on paper.) I've already got a Dremel and just need to go pick up a "deep" bit for some of the work from what I've read.

Any last minute tips, advice? Any caulk/adhesive that seems to work better than others? Still not sure what kind I'll end up buying to button everything back up.

Thanks.

--Mark
nice work turkaloo, but it seems to me that this thread was hijacked...and Mark hasn't complained. i love the look turkaloo...you should start a separate thread so we can focus on your exact mod...this thread was started by harrydunn...no biggie, just common courtesy.

Sorry about that, I'm still learning.

I'll start a new thread.
