3M makes a general purpose adhesive remover that is safe for paint (assuming you aren't soaking the paint in it for days). I LOVE the stuff.


If you are going for the sleek look you need to clear those front corners.

X2 on the 3M adhesive remover. Works great and safe.

Yeah, I've considered clearing them but I'm not sure how it will look on a gold car. I've seen it done on a few silver ones and it does look pretty sharp. I just know if I do the fronts I'll have to do the backs too. I'd much rather find some taillights from an '05 or GXP, but we all know how EASY that is. It'* on the list...

Looks good!

I do like the way the clear corners look on our cars, but I've been a little hesitant to do it myself. I don't want to mess anything up.

Where'd you find the GXP taillights and how much did you pay? I've wanted some since the GXP came out, but have always figured they were out of my price range (and probably still are!).

trust me, if you work well with you hands you can do the headlights....it takes time!!
GXP lights... I got lucky with the tail lights and found a pair on ebay for 100bucks... and than i just sucked it up and ordered the center piece for a 100bucks from GMpartsdirect.
so i paid 200total.... you probably can the whole set from GMDirect for about 250-300...
need part #'*???
