So I rolled the truck into the shop today to FINALLY instal some Christmas, fathers day, birthday gifts, as well as change the oil. I put in my auto-dimming / compass / outside temperature mirror. Set of four Kenwood door speakers, and these things here....



Ooooooooh yeah, they are cool. B-)

My day was going SO well, until I saw THIS....



Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Its WAY too straight to be a key scratch. There is no point of impact so I dont think its a shopping cart.
Not sure where it came from, but MAN am I annoyed.

SO, I guess I am gonna do a write up for you guys pretty soon.

Well, that scratch sucks, and I know that since that's your job, it's the last thing you want to do.

But boy, that light is cool. Never seen anything like that, got any more info on it?

Kdog, you are the body guy, but a double set of Sportwings could possibly solve this problem and possibly several more that are out there waiting for your truck.

Sorry for you scratch issue. I truly feel your pain.

Sorry to see the damage. It really sucks.

The logo light is a very cool item. :act035:
It is a pity the seller on eBay dont do international shipping. I would have loved to be the first in my area to flash the logo like that. (have sent a request for shipping. Crossing my fingers for a positive reply)

Check the link above. I think they ship international.

K-Dog,
Sorry to see the scratch :(
When you get a minute would love to see a install write up on the puddle lights. I have been looking at them but have not been able to figure out where to drill into the door to make them work. Did not seem like there was enough space to do so.

Thanks.

I drilled the holes in the metal door, not the trim panel. The reason is,,,, The wire that goes to the factory light in the door is in the door not the trim panel. Meaning, if I put the "spot light" ( for lack of better terms ) I would not be able to take the door trim panel all the way off unless I installed some sort of connector. Putting the spot light where I did, all I had to do was splice into the wire for the door light and the wiring was done.
The lights came with a hole saw / drill bit which made things nice. Do yourself a favor though and drill a pilot hole. Make sure you treat the bare metal.
On the kit I got the wires are super thin and frail. You need to be good at soldering or you will have a long day.

I hope this helps.

Thank you! I really need to look at doing this as the mod is killer.
