Post by DurhamLad1973 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 8:25 pm

How easy is it to get this done and how many others have it?

Cheers

Easily done with Carly, though bit pointless imo: add nothing to visibility other than for people looking at the car!

Quick and easy to do with esys yourself.
Does add more light at night when reversing down the side of vehicle, also looks good.
