Good job so far Joey!
Is this answer directed towards my question? If so, do you have pics?

Nope. You don't see it. Not my car. So I don't have the pics of it on the car. Guy did send me a pic of the Angels on but from a distance.

The bumper and hood covers all the work. I've done a lot of E60 headlights (3 headlights for my own car) and 1 E90.

i did what DKNewYork did... i chopped it off at the lens (closer to the housing though). I have a DIY in progess [full video] with a few "lessons learned" at the end...

It was my third attempt at a lense removal and it turned out really great (98% satisfactory i might say).

I could never get the hang of trying to bake it or heat it open... @OP, what was your process? Heat gun? I'm very curious

i dremeled around the housing the lens fits in to. Alot cleaner and easier to glue back together than cutting the lens. If you pop the hood you can see part of the headlight and i wouldnt want people to see dabs of glue

Looks good white. Always wanted to do a set in white. People always want the blackout. Can't wait to see it completed. You should have it in Tiffany blue to match your wheels.
