    Hey everyone.

    Finally found this website and registered.

    I already posted this thread on the org and was wondering if any one here can help me also.

    I bought a pair of Clear markers for the headlights and have no idea how to install them. Does anybody have a step by step on how to do it or anything else to help me. I am clueless when it comes to this stuff. Thanks in advance.

    Are the clears precut? If so, what I did was use plastic super glue that you can get at home depot or even target. It is a two step process first is the primer and then the super glue. Sand down the chrome on the location that you want to attach the clear, apply the primer on both the edges of the clear marker and the edge of the marker opening. Put the clear side marker in..... after that put a few drops of glue around the edges.

    First you would need to drop the front bumper FX Front Bumper Assembly - InfinitiScene.com

    Then you will take out the headlights. (couple of screws)

    Last take apart the headlights Take Apart Those Headlights - InfinitiScene.com

    Not sure who in your area can help you out but alot of our members are from your area. Ask around.....

    Absolutely not. Better get a spare.

    Btw, browse around a bit and you would've found:
    Take Apart Those Headlights - InfinitiScene.com

    Most of the things you'll need for DIY-style modifications or fixes will be there if not already :rolleyes:

    Spare set of headlights, since this isn't easily reversible.

    Either way if you decide to trade the car in....you could always do a swap with another fxer.

    Can you take a picture of the clear lens that you purchased?

    Since your FX is black, you should just use a black or tint overlay and place it over the amber area. I'd hate for you to take everything apart and have the clear lens not fit. Like Cube said, you're better off buying a spare set of headlights and play with that. However, if you got it from Randy (caskyline)... that would be a precise fit.

    I bought them from FX-1004 and I think it looks right. If I did buy extra headlights I would want to buy them with blacked out housing and angel eyes on them. I guess i'll give randy a call.

    Opps - I just answered your post on the Org.
    Basically its the same process as installing Angel Eyes.
    I was thinking about buying a set also - but I did some research and didnt think the clear lenses were worth all that trouble - :err:
    Call me a lazy a$$......:LOL:
