    Looks great, how did you drill holes through there? Seems like it would be a pain.

    Am I correct? That the screen is pressure snapped in from the back? U don't have to cut it?

    You either don't turn wrench's much ( LOL) or you spent two hours organizing your tool box for the picture. Being that organized is just not right.:dancingbacon::dancingbacon::dancingbacon::dancingbacon::dancingbacon::dancingbacon::dancingbacon:

    BTW, light looks good:):):):):)

    Yes I had to drill a hole for the Amber led’s. I just winged it and I think it turned out great.
    I broke down the hood bulge all they way then put it all back together. It breaks down just to where you have the grill insert.

    Will not be with my truck for a few weeks. Heading offshore early.... there is a 3” rubber garment on the fire wall where your wires come through. It’s behind your emergency brake. On the bottom of that garment in the engine bay is a little nipple cut the end off and run your wire through that. Other than that I just ran the wires along the side of the engine bay out of the way. Hope this is what you wanted if not let me know.
