Man, its mind-blowingly easy.

Take the tails out, use a dremel with a cutting disc, cut along the hump in the housing, slide the aluminum piece in, test fit on the car and adjust the piece to center it with the lights on, then screw it down and add silicone all the openings.

Its about an hour of work, 10 mins to take em out, 10 mins to cut, 10 mins to center, 10 mins to screw down and silicone, 10 mins to reinstall.

Granted, I bought the aluminum pieces from Savage in the following DIY thread: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=235878.

He charged me 5$ lol, I sent him 15$. But I could have easily made them, just cut them out of a sheet of aluminum with snips. But he is offering to send them to people if they pay shipping.

Thanks! I didnt want to do that either, the method I did just requires you to make a slit on top, not putting them in an oven and taking off the whole lens. Its easy!
