all americans call it a bathroom, if you're talking about the room. Unless you're an engineer/designer, then you'd say water closet.

restroom is more of a public bathroom. Bathroom is always said for that room.

so, just an update on these lights, make sure you let the silicone dry completely before re-installing, i did not, now they are fogged up, from what i can only assume is the vapour from the silicone :( i am hoping it will de-fog it's self, but i might have to take them out and dry them with compressed air

Being impatient is the root of all evil when modding headlights, but more the pure devil with modding corner lights.

i think the vapour that is in there, should air out in a few days, it's not really bad... the corners are worse than the headlights for sure, but the breather hole on them is much bigger...

i think the acetone will eat the plastic... lacquer thinner MIGHT work, use sparingly, it will do similar to the acetone, but not as harsh

Where do you guys buy the Clear corners?
And for instance on this one ... http://i32.tinypic.com/2wc1sv6.jpg .. do you paint the inside of that black or is it another buy?

That's my truck. That's a factory 06+ corner light that's been baked, taken apart, and the back chrome part was masked and painted John Deere Blitz Black.

the bulb or the whole assembly? for the assembly you pull up two tabs that hold the headlight in, the bulb has a ring around the headlight that you have to turnm, and the turn signal you have to rotate the bulb a little bit
