Default Anyone in Illinois want to help!?

I reside in the suburbs around Elgin/Streamwood area!
I was wondering if anyone could guide me or come and help me install:
  • F-Sport Replica Grill
  • 9006 Nokya 2500k Bulbs
  • Rear Trunk Spoiler

That would be pretty amazing!

I read up a lot on it, but I'd feel better having someone with experience to help out haha.

No one has to, its just an if you have time or bored then I'd appreciate it.

Or care to offer any tips on these installations?

THANKS CL!

trunk spoiler and bulbs will take a combined 20-30 minutes tops... have some confidence... you can DIY

Have never done a grill install, so I won't comment on that

I wish I can help you out but I'm near downtown Chicago. Those three parts are honestly really easy to install. The grille is only a few clips and two screws, should take 15 minutes, 5 minutes for me to do. For the fogs, you just have to remove the two clips on the fender liner and one 10mm screw under the bumper. Pull back the liner and reach in to replace the bulbs. Don't know what spoiler you got but all of them just go on by double sided tape.

Hm..I'm fairly confident on those 2, just don't wanna screw anything up bulb wise I guess if that makes sense! Or make any dumb common mistakes haha!

Do I need adhesion promoter for the trunk spoiler you think? Or is the 3M automotive double sided tape just fine?

Ah...I have to take the cover off first right to reach the 4 clips? And do I have to take out the chrome surround or can I get by with just swapping the inserts...thanks so much man I wish you could come out and guide me tho haha! Only if!
