Well done!

Now, go check the clamp tensions once a week for a month to make sure they're set. I used thread locker on a few critical ones too, for added insurance.

Is it really necessary to disassemble the front end that much for installation? I've never seen the front so stripped down for FMIC install.

Nice and clean install there! Job well done. Perhaps I should do this when I pull my headlights to do a projector retrofit.

It's not necessary but it makes everything so much easier. For mine I also removed the front crash bar and I had the stock IC out in one piece in less than thirty minutes. Some folks have gotten by just fine without doing so, but to each their own. I'd rather spend 5 minutes removing bolts than 60 minutes fighting in tight spaces.
