[DML] RE: Fixing Eyebrows

You only need to remove the headlight bulbs to insert the aluminum rod, you can
leave the headlight brackets in the car.

Take heed to Dave Swingles comments here [
http://www.dmcnews.com/Techsection/fascia.htm ] and use only "3M Window Adhesive"
unless you want to do this job again in the future. That stuff is super sticky so
take extra care and do not get it on any part you don't want it on. I put a towel
over the top of the fascia so I could use my thumbs to grab onto the fascia while
holding the gooey bar in place. Good idea to also use rubber gloves for easy
clean up on your hands. Also a good idea to have a friend put the adhesive on so
you can concentrate on the bar and not getting the adhesive on the fascia.

Hi Group,
I plan to fix my fascia's eyebrows in the very near future.  I am looking for 
tips from other owners who have had success in this repair.  All I really know is

you cut up some aluminum strips (but what size, thickness?), and use an adhesive,

heat gun, and clamps to hold it all together (what type of adhesive?) until it 
I am also most concerned with removing the headlamps and brackets and how I am 
supposed to get everything aligned properly again.  Don't you have to remove some

bolts from inside the trunk to get some of those parts out?  How do you take the 
brackets completely apart, start from scratch, and have everything lined up 
properly again?  The shop manual does not go into this.
