Easy Install of Bumper Lens

I'm one of the unfortunate who have a stock body still...

...but then, this is still a work-in-progress, so I got a long way to go.

Anyway, I just recieved my bumper lens for the front passenger & driver side turning signal.

I don't want to sound like a retard...
...but how do I install this?
...do I have to go through the headlight, remove it & access it that way to remove the old one & install the new one.
or
...do I have to remove the front wheel, and then remove the black plastic cover around the inside of the wheel and access it that way?

...or is there an easier way?

I'm guessing that this really should be an easy instal, but I'm trying to find the easiest way to access it. Remember, this is a stock GTS bumper (non-Action Package).

Thanks.

YEa, I gotta lotta quickie parts coming in the mail already. So aside from the eye-lids which are as simple as a snap-on, Im hoping that section will guide me through installing these badboys... mainly 'cause I don't wanna take it into the shop like a schmuck & ask them do to something that they can do with their eyes closed & charge me 200 bucks!

Although as much as I want to paint the whole dash, there be no way I'm removing the whole thing myself after looking at some of those pics from some peeps who totally removed the front dash!

I get confused trying to figure out if I want to use Butter on my bread or I Can't Believe it's Not Butter!

Hmmmmm, well I can tell you that putting the passenger side bumper lens on was a pain in the ash. Small hands help which I don't have.

I got tons of cuts from that. Went from stock to the Web design Clear Corners then had to take that out for stock again, then took out the stock again for the Supra clear. Now I gotta take it off again to change the bulbs.
