Hi, this is a great write up. Can you please provide some information on how to remove those plastic chrome trim rings / bezels around the front headlights. Also is there a way to chrome wrap these. The old ones are missing some chrome. Thanks!

Once it gets going, its not too hard, just make sure to watch the warm rubber glue from getting on any parts.

After that, just take out the reflector piece with a screwdriver.

In order to remove the reflector from around the lens, you need a flat head and very gently pull up on the tab. there are two tabs...one on top and bottom (the bottom one is a bit tricky) use a heatgun if needed to loosen these tabs!

To paint the reflectors, I used a high heat paint such as rim paint or brake paint that are meant to hold up against heat. You can plastidip it first, but mine did just fine, especially since it wont be exposed to outdoors or water once your done. I know a lot of people also like doing the Carbon Fiber (CF) wrap the inside as well...
