    Looks like a great start.

    I'm particularly a fan of the older 510s with the small bullet-shaped front turn signal.

    It's small and clean enough that I'd be less tempted to shave it off.

    FYI, the JDM front bumper is identical to yours. :wink:

    Looks like a great canvas to start with though. :tu: :mrgreen:

    Yes sir. One nut off the back side and those ugly things are in the bin. 8)

    The JDM cars had them too.

    Oh, and if they're in good shape, don't toss them. Some people will pay for the privilege of having nice ones. :wink:

    Hey, first off, drain your coolant, unplug the heater lines from the engine and try flowing water through it with one of those hose guns, the kind with the trigger. Dont use full pressure cuz you'll risk damaging the heater core. See what comes out. Most often there is just a sludge blockage that can flushed out. Let me know if that helps...

    p.s. If you do get crap out of there it might be time to get a flush and have that radiator cleaned too...

    I've bought a few of the Mexican repro lights. The quality of the molding isn't as crisp as their Japanese counterparts, but the plastic is quite good. They last well, and don't seem to fade.

    And from more than 3 feet away you can't really tell them from the Japanese lenses. :tu:
