OK so I bought the black tail light guards off ebay, and I'm rather hesitant to drill into the X, and the instructions that came with them are a bit crappy- they reference pictures a lot, and there are no pictures whatsoever. does anyone on here have them, and how did you install them?

thanks guys!

Don't the rear lights just unscrew, then the guards mount somehow to the same screws? I would also be wary of drilling.

ha ha ha. It's simple, yet meticulous at the same time. I'll try to bang it out this weekend. Also, I yanked off my nissan badge tonight, but it was a son of a bitch to get all the glue residue off. anyone know how to get that stuff off more easily?

I used a product called "sunshine adhesive remover" its a citrus based cleaner that I got @ a janitor supply store a few years ago. I've also used "goof off" from Home Depot or Lowes. The sunshine is used in schools to clean up after all of the little monsters that put stickers everywhere (I spent A LOT of time in detention in school).

WD-40 got the glue off from my dealership badge.

When I took my dealership badge off, I got all the sticky off, but now if you look closely, you can see the outline of each letter. I've buffed, waxed, but still see it. Can't figure out how to get rid of the outline short of a rubbing compound, and don't want to do that on a new finish for just a small area. Anyone ever used the polishing clays?

I use this product called OOPS. It worked like a charm when I de-badged my X and it works on everything. This stuff work 10 times better than Goo Gone.

well I'd be worried about anything that says it removes paint... but if it worked for you with no paint missing I might be down...

You know...I'm not sure why it says it removes paint, I know it can remove spray paint for sure when its still fresh. I never let it sit I just put some on a rag and wiped off the sticky icky and it didn't do any damage at all, plus it saved from scrathes from trying to scratch it off.
