Default Clearing Front OR Rear Tail Lights

If anyone needs the front or the rear tail lights cleared who is not brave enough to do it them selves OR don't have the time to do it, please PM me or send me a email at [email protected]. I just finished doing mine and it looks much better with out the yellow inserts. Also, if anyone is looking for BRAND NEW Headlights (NEW but Aftermarket) for 00-04 Bonneville, please contact me. I have 3 sets as of now but i am looking to replace my own real soon. I would sell a SET for $120 plus shipping or $70 for Left or Right, whichever one is needed. Let me know.


Paul

Default clearing procedure

I have a question. Why wouldnt you use black silicone adhesive to close these back up again. Wouldnt it be better than clear silicone.

Default Clearing fronts

How do you get the front headlights off. i found the two top bolts but is there a third one in the fender?

There are only two bolts on top. You just have to pry the headlight out straight. There is a ball joint looking piece where it goes and clips in to the fender. You have to pry out the light with a flat head between the light and the fender BUT be very careful you don't chip the paint on the fender or crack the headlight lens. Take a look at the picture!
