Headlight install

Hey all - hoping to swap out my stock headlights with some new Raxiom halos this weekend and wondering if anyone has any tips, maybe having done this before?
Apparently the front bumper needs to be pulled right off to get at the headlights' fastening bolts?

Hey I assume its for your 2009 mustang? if so it seems pretty easy once you get the bumper off. Here is a nice tutorial from American muscle. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info - I looked at the guide, pretty straight forward.
Now I just need to find the time!

You don't have to completely remove it, I just pulled the two bolts at the top pulled the tabs forward and it lowered just enough to get to the bolts holding the headlamps.

Sweet - I'll hopefully get to it this weekend. Finding the time for this stuff is tougher than actually doing the job!

PF- did you ever get those lights in? bought some for my 97 and found that the instructions want you to splice the led halos into the head light power supply so that they come on with head lights, I did this and the head light and/or the bright beam took away from the look I was going for, I wanted them to come on when I had the running lights only kind of like I see in the advertisement, so I followed the same instructions but spliced into the running lights, now I can turn just the led halos on only and it looks killer, oh and BTW the quality on the light assembly I got from spec-d are crap, weather stripping had to be glued back on, fitment was poor, and afraid to actually leave my car in the rain for fear of condensation damage, anyway good luck hope you got a better product!

Splicing into the running/parking lights would be the way to go for sure except I'm in Canada and we have daytime running lights, which come on with the ignition. I need to figure out how to kill that feature and I'll be ok. Thanks for getting back to me!
