Not back on yet, i'm going to let them dry for a full 24 hours, then wetsand them (there was a tiny bit of running on one of them, and one of them got touched by accident). So i'm going to wetsand them and possibly spray 1 more coat to even it out, then clear them... Probably won't be back on the car for 2-3 days..... I'm a little OCD when it comes to my car.

Wiped down with dish soap and water to remove any wax and grease. Will clearcoat, but not yet... They are still in the stage before they can be handled.

Totally understand the OCD. I bet 90% of this community are too.

I've taken my headlights off without removing the front bumper to change out bulbs.

So the 99-04 can be taken off without taking off the bumper? I know for 05+ you have to take off the bumper, wasn't sure about 99-04

Drove 1 mile to Starbucks. Sat there and did some study while watching people watching the car. An hour later, drove home again. Not exactly a cruise....but I got to turn the key!
