Got 2 new photos up. The cut template with the new machine is 100%. The print template needs tweaked to fit the new cut template. In person they look awesome, but I may be biased.




As I said before, trying to keep up with all the forums, but can reach most of you by hitting facebook up first. Would appreciate the likes if you are on there

(Got to charge up the good camera, these were taken with the phone that just got run over the other day.)

OK, found the charged battery... Note.. solved the delicate full black model issue by rolling with a cold matte over-laminate. these things will be tougher than the rest of the stuff in the jeep. Plan on doing matching heater controls for the 97+ units as well.

Yes.

I'll have info out to those who might be interested for beta testing this week, and some in the mail.

After I get a bit of feedback, then we will make changes where possible and get the instruction video made up for install and calibration.

I'm digging them. Is that just a thin gray line running around the white gauge areas to create a beveled look, or are they actually beveled? Either way, well done.

Smoke and well placed mirrors Ive tried to match the specs of the original so we dont have mechanical interference.

Approx cost is going to be $35 plus shipping. Installation service not available at this time. Will have final numbers shortly, but that has been the target.

I'll be in the market then. I was afraid of what the answer might be haha. You put a lot of work into these I know.

Please do, we have been making those for many happy Jeep owners. Just a note, these are not Indiglo (that is a 3M trademark) and do not glow on their own. they just use ambient light much better than the stock ones.
