Default as promised..

This angle really shows it off:


From a straight on view, you can really see the orange in the new turn bulbs (factory were clear)





Notice the grill?

EXTREME CLOSE UP:



Thanks to Jay for the detailed instructions; they were very helpful!

Okay...I have done a lot of debating back and forth with myself about whether or not to do this, but that top pic sold me...that looks fantastic. Nice work...and thanks for being the one to bite the bullet for those of us who were too timid. :P

Dude, it was so easy I literally did it at the kitchen table! The orange piece just "pops" out so you can EASILY put it back in. The orange bulbs were $4.00 for two making this one of the cheapest appearance mods ever.

Looks good, how did you do the grill, it'* sharp looking. Might try to clear my corners too after seeing how well yours turned out.

I purchased this stuff off ebay from a guy named "eurogrills". He was advertising it for a GP, two 6inch by 36inch pieces for $9.00 plus shipping. I am going to get two more pieces and do the vents on either side of the fog lights. If you buy any, you have to CUT it and mold it yourself. WEAR GLOVES!!!

Hailey is a "dudette" :P

I am really impressed by how they turned out. I would have never thought of putting clear corners on my car (dark blue metallic). I never thought of getting amber bulbs to make up for it. Hmmmm.....thinking.

So, did you take out the old grill and just wedge the new one in front of it. Attach it anyway? I bet you can get it stick in there pretty tight.

Now I have two new projects for next week. Thanks Mremer

to me "dude" is universal, did'nt mean any disrespect.

As far the amber, I debated about leaving the clear bulbs in there, but ultimately decided in favor of the law!

"dude", Im just stoked that I could finally contribute back to this board! (in addition to the Thrasher CAI write up I did). The front end of the SE is very different from the SLE and SSEi, I replaced the "grill" that was there by simply removing it and cutting these pieces to fit in place.

LETS CLEAR THEM LIGHTS PEOPLE!! I WANNA SEE PICTURES WHEN I GET BACK FROM MY HONEYMOON!!!! (im getting married this weekend)
