More progress, I replaced the broken and faded headlights on my Ion with new ones and instead of halogen bulbs I went with Morimoto 2Stroke 3.0 LED bulbs. Theyre rated 28W instead of 55W for the bi-xenon setup I had before, and also use the stock harness instead of requiring a relay and control harness and projector, so Ive likely also cut a small amount of weight. I also finished smoothing out the front bumper cover, made new faschenfeld edges for my rear bumper (to match the new longer spoiler) and marked for vents to be cut into the bumper similar to what I have on the front fenders.

All the while, Im waiting on the UPS guy to bring me parts so that I can prepare the next engine for install
