thank you to both of you. the install was HORRIBLE. the rubber seals are glued to the tails so i had to take some soapy water and lube them up and then slide a credit card in between the seal to get them to mount flush. and a big thanks to LONY for the info on how to do this.
Ha ha you said lube them up....dirty. :devil: lol

Sorry it was a big pain in the :moon: to put them in, but it was definitely worth it...they look wicked sweet!

The tails before the new ones... were they the red and clears? If so, what are you planning on doing with them?
