what a pain in the ass this project is turning out to be...
since AAC has replacement halos backordered, i should expect to have the warranty replacement in about 3-5 weeks...so, i went ahead and sealed up my lights and put the car back together today so i can drive it for the next month!
well, the center halo on the driver's side now decided it wanted to come unglued the shroud stayed on both lights, at least, since i caulked them down this time.
so, i'm just going to continue driving it with the halo like it is...little embarrassing but i'm tired of dropping the bumper and baking headlights for the time being. i want to enjoy the car for a bit before doing any more major work to it. plus i need to replenish some of my wiring supplies now lol.

Looks good! Is there a cover or lid for the switches?

Thanks. Nope, nothing for the switches. Not really worried about it tho. My arm is usually either along the side of the cupholders or well above

Set the vents for an approximate mock-up...I like the look. The unpainted vents look like an exact match for the hood, so, bonus...

Thanks. Should have more updates this weekend, and hopefully I'll get my halo from AAC soon so I can finally finish the lighting project!

alright guys...the vents install was pretty straightforward, but i caused myself a lot more work by trying to err on the side of caution when i cut, so it took quite a bit longer than i expected today. call me crazy, but i was a little nervous drilling and cutting the holes...there's not really any take-backs with this lol...but, i followed the instructions and did minimal extra damage, just two tiny dings to the wrap. one was caused by the jigsaw because i only used one layer of tape and i guess it rubbed through at some point. no idea how the other scratch happened though :(
anyway, time to commence with some pics, i guess







the finished product is so badass...



there was a pretty good mess left too...

Single guys do everything in the living room... Lol!

Looks pretty good! Don't think I could do it though. Cutting the hood must have been hard to stomach.

Yeah it was a little nerve-wracking going into it, but after drilling the starter holes there's no turning back!
