It was super easy but then again it was my 3rd time doing it.


and it comes with a switch.

But I mean if you know how to wire then it should be easy.

Ill take pics if it will help?

Oh I also painted my diff color red and made a grenade stencil and painted that on there to.

looks tight as ****.
