Did you get started baking them open? I'm ready to get started! My parts didn't ship from TRS though. The shipping info was sent to UPS but it appears that it was never picked up. That's a bummer.

What are you using to pry the headlight open? just a flathead screwdriver or what

Do DRLS "have" to be turned off by a dealer?
As far as I know, the DRL's will be okay, and I'll use an old flathead I dont care about.

Mmmmmmm yep those are a nice pair of lights.

I mean..uhh, good luck! Opening the lights aren't easy, but I'd say its the hardest part of the retro.
