    Pics will have to wait for a little while longer, It's too cold to risk any breakage of my stuff, plus I want to wait until the headlights are done...hope to have my housing tomorrow and get to it this weekend!

    that's good don't break your stuff, I have broken a few things in the cold like my WINDOW TRACK, ok so technically it was my fault for trying to roll it down when it was frozen shut, how was I supposed to know it'd break..... ROFL j/k

    dud you have SKIEALZ I can't wait to see your car when you are finally done with making it as nice as you want it! it's not gonna look anything like a scort anymore it'll be better! keep it up I can't wait to see them finished lights and turnage signals! :D :) I'm still scouting out the kia BP tubular for ya! we'll make that happen!

    Well, I may just have to make some time to put the side markers in this weekend and take a few shots. I am still waiting on the new housings, well instant payment doesn't guarantee fast shipping! A week from VA?, BS!

    Fitment was quite good actually, only the slightest trimming of the outer edge/shelf of the headlight bracket was needed.

    Those corners look sweet man, they look almost like they could be OEM. That's definite skill.

    The only problem I see with crafting a one piece is that the bolts that hold the outer headlight bracket to the car would be no longer accessible. I think omitting those bolts wouldn't be a big issue, beside less strength. If the fusing of the pieces was strong, the one screw in the rear of the side marker might be enough to keep it held back; there is an alignment tab on that end of bracket. It could only work for the "paint-able" style of housings, unless extreme care is taken to not have to sand the lenses and then have the fill colored, but that would just hide the work. would be pretty easy to do considering the three mounting points to hold the side marker to the headlight and fender. Great idea! Keep them coming! Please correct me if I didn't take in consideration of anything.

    Update, things went well, I haven't put the lights in yet because I want paint to cure more. I think they turned out pretty well...

    I have some minor modding of the brackets to do and I think I will be done!
