I've done anywhere between 50 and 70 sets of these locally, including other cars like 370z, GTR, 350z, etc....

No I don't do it anymore so don't ask me, but my suggestion to you is to go on and look up the DIY thread, they have SPECIFIC instructions with pictures that show you how to do it..

It's not easy BTW, I messed up my first set of lights doing it... heatgun won't work let alone a hairdryer, it has to be oven and you have to be CAREFUL... oh so careful
