Guys/Gals--

Woke up this morning and decided to clear the corners given temps in the mid-50'*. A friend and I made pretty short work of it. Picked up some SilverStar'* to finish off the effect. I'm very pleased with the results. Will do the rears sometime early next year. Thanks for everyone'* input. Just looks great on these cars. Sorry I didn't get any before pictures for you.

I'm thinking of clearing my corners once it gets warmer. Do you just remove the headlight assembly and then remove the amber plastic piece?

Also, I'm thinking of doing the angel eye foglights too... What'* the deal with those?

In a nutshell, yes. Once you get the headlight assembly fasteners off there is still a plastic "arm" holding the rear portion of the assembly to the front fender. This takes some finesse and muscle but it will pop loose (hopefully with all of the tabs still attached.)

Once you get the headlight assembly off, there are some tabs to pull off around the perimeter. An exacto knife/utility knife will help cut through the black silicone holding everything together. The amber pieces pop out fairly easy.

Clearing the rears isn't quite as easy.

I'm sure somebody else can answer the angel eyes question. I don't know too much about those.

I think the clear king ToastedOats doesn't cut the black seal..only heats it and the light comes apart. Leaving it intact keeps the seal good once you put it together.

Angel eyes.. Tons of people around here have them. The Hella ones can use our existing mounting brackets. If your question is more specific..please elaborate

i used these lights here.. when i installed them, i welded the OEM bracket to the new bracket, this way, it retains the same mounting holes, and adjustment screw, and also keeps it at the same depth as the OEM lights....
