Auto body shop guidance

All;

Still deployed; wife took the car by a body shop today to discuss some of the mod installations.

The tech told her that for the front reflector deletes and the side gill lights (white LED light replacements), the front bumper needs to be removed. Is that accurate? I was kind of under the impression they were both simple plug and play?

Thanks!

If you're just putting in the gills & painted reflectors the bumper isn't removed. If you're filling the reflector holes & painting it, the bumper needs to be removed.

If I was you, I'd wait until I got back to do anything.

The painted reflectors just pop in & out... takes maybe 1-2 seconds. That easy.

Those are pretty easy to DIY if you wanna just wait until you're back.

Definitely just wait and DIY. Too easy to pay someone to do.
