Nosejob on my 2003 SE (56K Beware)

Some time back, I started the front end conversion on the SE by putting in a headlight switch w/fogs I got from Gigamight. Here is my original removed.









New one installed. I had to check for the power wire that goes to the fogs, to see if it was in the harness, or if I was going to start from scratch. With some direction by TorontoFireCaptain, I found what I was looking for.



The Blue one is the power to the fog lights. I need to run power from there through the firewall, and fabricate a harness.







Parts arrive.



These factory connectors have to go, since I'm making my own harness.
I replace them with shielded blade connectors, and create a nice little harness.







That's as far as I had gotten til today.

Well I finally got motivated enough, and time enough at the same time, to do the front fascia swap on the SE.

Here it is, as it happened this morning.

First step, remove the SE cover





You have to remove the headlights to get to these





The bottom clips, 3 per side, are attached to the air dam, and are all metal.
You will destroy them getting them out.



Yay! It's off





New Fogs, mounted.



I took the time to paint the under bumper satin black.







Wiring harness in place.



Fed through. I used loom on it where it passed through the body metal, to avert any shorts later.



Coming together nicely.





All done mounting. I still have to finish the wiring pass through to the cabin. Otherwise, it's all done!

Looking more like twins now..

Nices work! Looks great! Your new switch (knob) does not have the little green led like mine though. It lights up when you pull the knob out to engage the fog lights.

No biggie. Maybe I'll swap it out sometime.

Finished connecting the fogs.

Here's the final product.

Now I just have to swap the rims with the SXT Chromes I bought from BLD25 and that car is DONE!

Thanks all for the positive remarks. I would have never done this if I hadn't come across this site, and the knowledge and information here. This was planned before I got the SXT, and I might not have went ahead with it, but I had already bought everything when trep#2 came along, so I think it's kinda cool having there two sitting there side by side like that. That will probably be the end of the mods, since the wife is driving the SE now. Time to plan that sound deadening for the '04, like I did in the '03.

Nice job on the swap! The difference really makes it worth the effort (well, at least it looks like it to me... I have not done this mod).

Thanks guys. I feel like it's some kind of brag-a-thon for posting this, but really it's to help anybody who wants to do the same thing. Really is a one day mod. I know this is/was on Keiths to-do list, and he already has a bumper.

BTW, I have an extra cover now, in case anybody has a SE with a f'd up bumper. I'd let it go cheap!

lmao! I was going to ask about the hammer. I think this is a good write up for anyone considering doing a body kit as well. Well, it'll get em started on the nose anyway... Thanks for taking the pics.
