Yeah quality is good I think. Literally three, 3m double sided strips and you stick on over the existing cover. :)

Finally got around to putting in my Cree Reverse bulb today. Makes a big difference. Dual reverse is on the cards.

Also added Mist Washer Jets, vast improvement over the originals. Excuse the video, my nephew was helping me record :)

After much slacking and making the last payment of my Student Loan (yay paid off in 10 years), I finally got round to some more mods:

 

New Windscreen Wipers & some New Osram Dipped Bulbs. I'll post some shots of the Osrams after I get some night shots.

Then onto something I've been meaning to do for awhile. Adding a 2nd Boot light. I have zero experience with with electrics, splicing cables etc and to be honest the thought of it was daunting. But I have to give props to Lenny for a ridiculously easy guide and links to all the required items. Was actually very easy to do, and the splicing blocks make life so much easier.

 

Connection spliced into the existing boot light.

Ran my cable through the boot trim, rather than the method in the guide, much quicker, just be sure to wrap it in loom.

Eureka, we have a working connection  :)

And some shots of both LED pads lighting the boot up like a christmas tree  :rolleyes:

Still on the hunt for a reverse/fog light to do the dual reverse, but currently being quoted stupid prices by breakers. One quoted me £60 for the bulb, housing and as much wiring loom attached as possible.

 

But so far quite happy with the new light, and the Osram bulbs are a vast improvement to the stock Halogen bulbs.

That's the beauty of having your own build thread, one man's dislike is another man's treasure.
