The aluminum plates cleaned up nicely but the wings are a bit cruddy.

I have a couple more yards in the area, any other ideas?



The fake carbon fiber dash thing, Parking sensors

Haha, it already has the carbon fiber dash. I was looking at the cranberry dash parts today.

What are the parking sensors?

There are enough holes in the outside and inside rocker panels to utilize.

The plates are installed onto the stock covers by drilling a hole for the wire to pass through:



This is one of the slots on the outside of the rocker that the stock sill plates lock into. Then I took a rat tail file to create a clearance notch for the wire:



Then on the inside of the rocker remove the trim panel and remove one of the rubber grommets, and use a rat tail file to create a clearance notch for the wire:



Then using a string feed the wire from the lighted sill plate through both holes with the notches:





Then replace the grommet for the interior trim panel, the notches provide clearance for the wire:



Connect the wires from the sill plates to the wiring from the transformer:



I modified the installation instructions by hiding the transformer behind the trim panel below the seat belt on the drivers side. You only have to tap into the door switch wiring on the drivers side. Then I fed the wire to the passenger side under the carpet behind the front seats. Fed it through from half way from the drivers side then went to the passenger side, reached under the carpet and pulled it through:
