Default Just spent the last 2 hrs on wife'* Accord

I got some replacement headlight lenses for the faded ones on the wife'* 02 Accord. Little did I know that I would need to pull the bumper off to get to them! I figured it would be simple like the Bonneville.

Neighbors were walking by looking at me like "WTF?"

Don't you just love automotive engineers? They take a simple task and make it a pain. On my car a simple 30 second belt change is 45 mins because someone thought it would be a great idea to run the belt threw a motor mount.
