A little hard to pin down the actual time since it was on & off over the weekend but I'd say less than 8 hours for all of it would be a good guess. The videos are very helpful. Between that and the other postings from people who have installed (there's a few great DIY threads on halo installations here) he was able to figure it out pretty easily. One of the biggest pains was taking off the front end, there are a few more bolts than anyone noted but he got it done

I'm assuming he had never done this before, and it came out looking good!

Under 8 hours isn't a bad time at all. I've done the install 3 times now and I'm continually around 6 hours.

The hardest part is getting those W screw at the very top of the bumper. Every time it takes me like a half hour.

Additional Front End Screws

To all,

In addition to the 3 they show inside the fender well there is also a 10mm and 8 mm at each side marker. The easiest way to get to all of them for me was to remove the fender well splash guard (3 screws in front and 2 in back and 5 or 6 plastic inserts) Also the cable connector for the fogs is short, so you will need someone to help you disconnect it or have something there to support the frontend.

Total time today was 4hrs with sealant drying time, if you spend a few mins and pull the whole wheel well the bolts are easy
