    So here is the result of hacking up my 3rd gen meso dome light and loading the guts in my 2nd gen dome lens. Very happy with the results plus no more waiting for new inventory.

    I recommend any of the hard shells if you can afford it. I really like my desert armor but I’ve been led to believe most of them are manufactured in the same factories in China, meaning most of the hard shells are the same (ie-desert armor, tuff stuff, rhino somethin or other…)

    Did you install new seat covers? It looks like the pull downs on the back rest aren't hog ringed down.

    I haven't finished the seat covers yet. Letting them breath and stretch a few days in this heat. Been too hot to mess with them the last few days anyway. Mostly need to finish the passenger fold flat seat. Driver side just needs a final pull and tuck.

    I have a couple strap wrenches, I got a 2 pack and the small one works perfect if I take the plastic over engine shroud off beforehand. I also hand tighten the new filter going on for next time. I tried my hand at a metal cap tool that goes over the filter but that striped the filter every time so I gave up on them.

    Something like this you can find at almost any hardware store pretty cheap.

    I actually use the K&N brand one for every 5000 mile change for the past 75000 miles. Not because it is "K&N brand" but because the have a 1" hexed top that I use a 1" socket to get it on and off. Very convenient believe me.
