I must write, if no one else will, that the difference is like night and day.
I give you credit for not only attempting that, but for doing it properly.
Hat's off to you and keep it up.

Had that problem too. Did the same thing but also painted the insert black while i was at it, and also sealed the headlight with adhesive.

Good Job

yes you have to take the whole bumper off which is a real hassle, i used wax in the inside and out side after i washed it of course and i use really high quality slicon black color would be the best on the sides made it air tight, and i had some yellow spots on them from the head light for that i used meguiars scratch x its for fine scratches and swirl remover. it worked great i suggest this product to everybody

No you don't have to take off your bumper if it is a urethane one. You can get away with taking off the screw in the wheelwell where the bumper meets the fender (under the wheel well plastics) and that will let you get at the third bolt on the light.

Looks really good btw!
