Well, I got tired of having just a stocker (other than the wheels) and got off my lazy duff and done-did some mods to our boxes. Last weekend I cleared my corners and while I had the bumper off I figured I'd mount some air-horns (no pics of the horns):




Ran out of time last weekend, so I had to do Angie's tonight (clear corners, not air-horns):




Now, just to let all of those out there that are afraid to do this know, IT WAS REALLY EASY!!!

Just remove all the bulbs and the little metal spring that holds the headlight bulb in...bake each one at 250 deg for 10 minutes (if you try to do more than one at time the second one will cool too much before you can pull it apart)...pull lens off the front (take your time, make sure you slowly work it off the clips all the way around so that you don't stretch or break them.)...once you have it open, remove the screw that holds the blinker reflector in (take care not to touch the inside of the lens, or you will have to clean it very well or just live with the finger prints inside the lens...lol)...you will see 2 clips that hold the yellow pieces to the reflector, press these out (they may be a stick a bit but just work it back and forth and it will come out.)...put the reflector back in, reassemble the lens cover on the body (just get it on as close as you can) then put assembly back in the oven for about 5 minutes once you have warmed them up again, the glue will be soft and firmly press lens back into place...repeat steps above for headlight #2.

Believe me, as long as you don't go over 250 deg, and you don't leave them in for longer than 10 minutes, there is no danger at all of melting them.

Turned out awesome! I wish I had done the "bake" rather than "brake" on mine. I have some small scratches on mine that most people don't notice but I do. Nice job.

Can we post the before pic of mine? Especially on the BSP, this no-money mod is really a sharp improvement, IMO. I'm so happy! :D
