So we finally had some decent weather to work on the bird and one of the mods I couldnt wait to do was replacing the nasty yellow headlight housings and install new clear corner lenses. First off, what the hell was Ford thinking using snap rings to secure the headlights. A simple bolt would have been just fine, but know, lets make it take an hour to change something that should have taken 10 minutes. It was worth all the scrapped hands. Totally made my car look so much better...

Nice mods.

Adding these will help the headlights over the long term: http://www.autoanything.com/lights/60A1218A0A0.aspx

Yeah I saw those. Cant believe how expensive they are going for. When I have my tailights professionally tinted I am going to have the guy do clear on the headlights and corners. Even though she is always under a car cover...

Cheaper than new headlight housings :) And they help reduce rock impact damage. Included corner shields too.

If the tint is done right it should help keep them clear as well.

I also run a smoked cover on the front plate...
