    I have one in a box that I had intended to install. I couldn't figure out how to do it without trimming the console surround. The fit up just didn't seem right since the metal plate is a bit thick.

    I opted for this route (Seidio, I think).

    interesting. I had to have my axle housing replaced after being hit so I never got the chance to see how the rear was sealed.

    That's actually a nice touch, good job! I may have to store this idea away. :)

    Replaced a broken corner light which I had converted to turn signals with amber VLEDS. Clear 3M over the lens.

    VLEDs are so worth it. I have gone through so many garbage Amazon LEDs that eventually have some kind of failure.

    It protects the acrylic lens from rock chips, scratches, fogging. I've pulled it off old lenses after years and the lens is brand new.

    I did buy a bulk sheet but you can also get it pre-cut. I scanned one of the pre-cuts so I could make my own. If you print out the PDF 1:1 you can do the same. It works great to protect retrofits as well. My old retrofits were still like brand new when I upgraded them.

    Nice. I think all my cars are getting that treatment before they do start to yellow

    Rust, dents, miles.
    Finally wrapped a week of fiddling around:
    • New speakers
    • Added amplifier
    • New-to-me door lock cylinders
    • New-new ignition lock
