LOL

Actually, the car is not clean at all. Just the bumper for some reason. But, I just got it Wed., so, she's still shiny.

Sorry about not doing a "how to", "step by step". ZSilver6's instructions were so good, I felt it would be a repeat to post it again.

He did a great job.


Getting tint done as I speak!!!! YEAH!!!! Now if my stinkin' wheels would hurry up and get here already!

Not so much that its hard to do, just time consuming. They are probably planning on it taking 2.5 - 3 hours. Charge is based on some fixed hourly rate. Plus the HIDs probably require some xtra wiring. Do it yourself and the labor is FREE!!

Well,

Like ZSilver6 said, it's not "hard" in the sense that it's complicated, it's just very time consuming.

There is nothing to mount the fogs to, so you have to construct a way for them to basically stand on their own. I wouldn't rely on the black mesh thing to be the only stabilizer.

My fogs are completely secured by the brackets. They will not move. During the process, there was a lot of adjusting and we had to refit the bumper MANY times for placement, etc.

ZSilver's directions were better than any I've seen yet. I, personally, didn't take any step by step photos. There are a few different ways to mount the brackets. We didn't do it exactly like ZSilver. Just experiment. You'll figure out what's easiest for you.

Oh, and we wired my fogs to my stock lights. So, my fogs have two bulbs--a "city light" and then the driving lights. We wired the city lights to come on with my parks and the others into my stock fogs. It worked out pretty cool.
