Front Bumper Orange Reflector

Hi all,
I would like to change out the front bumper orange reflectors out to the colored body ones. Does anyone have a DIY or experience one doing the swap? I also have the surround view cameras as well. Thanks

I bought mine from IND, painted perfectly to match and they have videos to show the install.

yup, looks like Turner Motorsports is the cheapest with free shipping. So in terms of install, it looks like I just need to peel back the fender lining, heat it up, and remove?

Yeah it’s almost that easy, I’ve done without even taking the wheels off (although it’s easier if you do). Few screws for the camera and heat it up, hair dryer works, heat guns better. Make sure you get all the glue/adhesive/tape off the inside and put the new ones in, hold them tight for a few minutes.

IND. 10-15 minutes per side, take your time on the old adhesive and get things as clean as you can.

I think I found them. Turner has a part with their label/brand on it vs ind's.

Exactly from IND, turner motor sport is just the Vendor. Reflectors will ship directly from IND. 340319TCKADUPTNO is the part number. Just select your paint color.
