    Got a nice conversion kit with no instructions.
    I'll post pictures and such as I figure out the install.

    So there's a clip that needs to be installed.

    It attaches to the headlight.

    It needs to be bolted on here where the rusty bolt is.

    Now. The new attachment has 2 parts. You need to take them apart!

    They look like this. (never mind the drawing. That's for something else)

    I am going to apologize to Top Gear.
    They do have an article that shows the installation of this bracket if you dig around.
    Me thinks the chat support people need some training though.
    The article has very small pictures so I'll post better images here.
    I got rained out yesterday so will finish the install today.

    Installed the brackets after painting the stuff behind the grill.
    Next is to splice in the LED DRL wires and mount the converter box.
    It has self adhesive tape but I doubt it will hold.

    It’s been awhile since I’ve perused the tech section, but my question is- Is this what we have come to? Is this the new type of how-to we can expect from now on, because I’m frankly left scratching my damn head on this one. First of all, WHERE is a picture of this awesome grill? Or headlight? And you have the nerve to say that Top Gear’s chat support people need some training? This thread needs to be deleted. Come on, Jeff....WTF?
