How were you able to fit it without removing the bumper or grill?

I will be attempting this so any tips would be appreciated.

tape up all the surrounding areas, cover grill bits with a rag , then get a die grinder and start cutting away
be patient and gentle
the lower part of the original housing goes up at a 30 degree angle, you need t take all of this out
i then kept making the hole bigger so that the star goes into place tightly
you will need to remove all tabs from the new housing and star so that it fits in

i have not wired it up as yet due to other commitments , but i will be heading to the fuse box in the engine bay and setting it up from there

good luck be patient and it will come up looking great

small tip..when fitting put a piece of masking tape on the bonnet above the star and work out the HIGH point is... mark it with a pen so that you may align your new star

good luck

be patient... it is worth it in the end

Thanks great info. Yours looks like it came from the factory. Great look.

Like your lights, I have those as well.
