Yeah do NOT paint the silver housing, bad job!!! Just the insert with the two circle for the reflection. Once you go with whats been said through the thread you'll be grand, its not that difficult, sounds harder than it is

Didnt get them done, got 1 headlight off, went to but in the the oven to discover the over was too small :oops: . Theres 2 10mm bolts at the back of the headlight that you have to access inside the wing & I couldnt get get open on the r/h headlight. I couldnt get the bumber off either because I couldnt open the screws on the bottom.......So next time (when I get my locking nut) take off the front wheel, jack it up in the front, so I can take the wing liners off comfortably & I need a drill so I can try & get the screws off in the bottom.....
