File comment: on the clear corner bracket cut and bend it back like the picture. p.s when installing the clear corner you might have to play around with this bracket.

that seems a lot more involved than the depo ones I installed in my metro.....I know I bent that bracket back, but I cant remember cutting anything else out......Its been awhile since I installed mine, (4x6 glass hid) i would have to go check.

GOOD WRITE-UP. GOOD PICS.
NICE UPGRADE,ISNT IT? 8)

never mind,i did cut out the same amount of bracing behind the lens........ still worth it.
