i'll let it sit for a day or two, hopefully it will get recognized by a mod by then, if not i'll PM someone. just dunno if it should be like ken/neuron since they are around these parts more, or ron a/astro

also, if you know of others that i forgot, didn't see, post them up, every couple i'll try to have a mod edit them in

Sweet. Needs to be a sticky. There have been a bunch of times I needed to look at a DIY and had to search through a bunch of thread results to find it.

i think the cardboard bodykit thread should be on there as well as ed's rainbow unicorn tsx photo (methinks covershot?). killerg's failed curse word in the title thread would also be helpful for people to understand what kind of degeneracy lurks in this here 2G forum.

and as a grand finale a link to the online registration for the seeyou2 crew could round out the post for thoroughness and completeness.

to my knowledge thats a negative. you could PM OP of this thread, as he took the tails apart, he may have help to offer, and you could then document and give us a DIY https://acurazine.com/forums/showthr...removal&page=2

last post in this thread also links to a TL tail light removal guide, and he said it was very similar. good luck https://acurazine.com/forums/showthr...+light+removal

Thanks PyroDave for taking the time to compile this. I have made the thread a sticky and updated the title to make it more obvious what info is in the thread.

For everyone else, please send along links to other DIY threads that you find and would like included. A mod will check this thread every once in a while and update the original post with new entries as needed.

Thanks CG, I'm busy today, but late tonight I will add several more DIY that have been created.

For future reference guys, when you post a link to a DIY, rename the URL as I did so we know what each link is, and also state under which category it belongs. That way there is minimal work required of the mods
