I noticed in your first post you said dont forget the rivets and clips. Can they not be reused when you put the bumper back on?
If you dont mind, I am sure I will need to pick your brain as I start this process.
Have you had any issues using aftermarket housings?
The clips for the grill can be reused several times before they wear out like mine are.
No problem with the aftermarket headlights. I few slight design flaws like on one of them, the hole was missing for the big clip with the white push pin. I fixed that with a drill. And on one of the turn signal sockets, the bulb fixture stews in kind of funny. These things were no issue at all for me. Seriously.
As for the lens itself, no discoloration or hazing at all thus for. Thank to the help of the "35w" bulbs and ballasts that burn not as hot as the 55w bulbs and ballasts. (Another reason I won't use 55w kits.)
