Actually did this Monday after work but I've been busy and exhausted. Put in my teraflex shock bar I ordered.

Put the a fender flare on the left rear last night since they're calling for 3 days of rain and snow, starting now. Was elated at the storage unit when I thought I found the one that fit....then realized of course they're the same cutout. Had to drill a few holes in it for the zip ties.

Put the roof on today and drove around in the rain... still not giving in and putting the doors/windows on

Also, playing with these LEDs. Not sure if I want to use this color white and have the stock taillight/turn signal lenses deal with tinting the light red/amber... or actually getting red/amber LEDs and putting those behind the lenses.

I have 3 rolls here that will be used for accent/party lighting in the backyard (because why not? )

I like these because you can cut 'em every 3 LEDs. I see no reason why I couldn't use these to do interior lighting or perhaps tail/turn signal LED conversion. Not lightbar-bright but easily brighter than the old bulbs I have now...

Thanks! I've looked at similar ones but was never sure of the quality. I want to basically wire up my whole interior in them so I can see better when I need them. Probably going to try to stick them on the roll bar.

If these work out well (these will be subjected to rain/dust etc) I may put some under the dash facing down and something with the sound bar
