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

God, this makes me want to get this done even more now, sucks that I have to wait till I get back from Iraq again :/ Oh well, at least it will give me time to get some money saved up so I can get all my lighting done at once when I get home again

Hey AAC what do you think of my new idea I have now, since no diffuser fits in the DRL with colorshift 2.0 I was thinking of scratching the DRL lens just around were the LEDs hide behind the lens, do you think that will work as a diffuser, since you have done the install I was wondering if the lens is thick enough for it work as a diffuser? Let me know what u think

If you are set on using a diffuser I think that idea is actually your best bet in this case.

Well I've been try to find a way to diffuse the DRL halos and if I can't then I go naked with no diffuser on both, which at first was not an option, but now it's getting to be and liking the look of no diffuser and torn apart between the two, I need recommendations or opinions

You are going to be getting a lot of people breaking their necks when you drive by with the halos on!
