I bought 2 spare right hand doors from an EL XR for $1 on ebay. How cheap is that? a dollar!! haha..
i dont need the doors, but for a dollar? I went and picked them up myself so i didnt have to pay postage either.

Mine were all yellow so i followed the thread in here and cost me about $2 for the wet and dry paper, i finally used some Meguiar's fine cut cleaner. They look about 99% brand new, have some pics in my gallery.

In reply to the first post.. I think with GLi models you do have to take off the front bumper to remove the lights, coz i was playing around with my lights today and i can't take them out unless i remove the bumper... unless of course i'm not doing it right.. :?
Is there anyone out there with a GLi model who's removed their lights without having to take off the bumper??
