    With #2 Not hard to do.What I used was some fishing line then with the leftover Adhesives I used a 3-M Eraser Wheel.Then use Meguiars Quick Detlail.I would just said take your time and before you know it your done.

    With #3 I had my Aftermarket Front Spoiler painted at a local Body Shop.They did a great job.

    clearing lights might be trick, becareful on the temperature u use to heat up the glue.... use a heat gun if glue starts to stick again.

    every thing is pretty easy headlights will probly be most time comsuming. debaging is easy with fishing line like the dude said. just take your time and pay attention to what your doin and you will be fine
