Hi I’m Paul

Just had brand new lights bought from
Honda cox motorsport fitted to my 09 Civic type s gt ... and type R grille with red surround // clear lights type r I’ve bought but they still need fitting !!! How long would you say to take off old and fit new lights front both sides and grille and put new gt led bulbs in the units on front !! Assemble bulbs easier to get too as could assemble in units ready ???

The grill swap takes about an hr, removing the bumper makes it easier and less prone to break clips.

Lights won't take long, maybe 30 mins whilst the bumper is off.

So 2hrs all in.

3hrs with a brewski midway.

How long did it take your mechanic?

If you know how to take the bumper off, then it's quick/easy. But if you aren't familiar and take care then it will take longer.
