Nice new sig pic...looks like my styles...very sharp..

Yes and the factory cleared look of the GXP is mighty nice
Yup, I just took new pics the other day (replaced the amber bulbs with silver coated bulbs), saw that pic and decided to use it for sig. I did get the idea from your signature pic though! Thanks.

I going to try again tomorrow. Will let you'll know what happens. If anyone knows how to seperate to front plastic from the back mounting plate please advise......Thanks!

Well, doesn't look like clearing out the tail-light will happen. I have been trying to seperate the tail-light from the housing for 3 days now and all I have done is brake the plastic and bend my small screwdriver. If anyone has any more ideas please let me know and I will try it on this broke tail-light.

Just cleared the front. It looks great. I did slice my finger on the first one
trying to put the clips back on with a srcewdriver. But the 2nd went ok.
Put amber bulbs in for know, I just ordered the silver chrome bulbs so
I will change them out when I get them. Took pic'*, will post when get them back.
No not of my finger but of the lights......

Still not able to open the tail-light. I'm starting to think it'* not going to happen.
But I haven't given up hope yet!

You guys considered dremeling like some people do on their 92-99 corners? Also try heating the glue as well.

the problem is'nt removing anything, its getting the DA^M housing open to begin with. It may need to be "dremeled" in order to open it...

A dremel tool, I have one. Hey if you give up adbear, let me have a shot at it. I'll even come pick it up. I'm guessing some heating of the adhesive is in order. Let me know.
