i know its more expensive to install a different set of lights, but the round light it the square port is just not working to well, at least for me. i was doing the same thing on my T3 ports and the round light just wasnt right, again, that just me. i know you guys will come up with some good stuff and yall alreay have.

Lupe,

Question.......the 2-part epoxy that comes with the Ports.....is there a special applicator "gun" that the cartridges work with? What I received is a double barrel cartridge with the mixing nozzle.

Did yours come with the "gun"?

no gun. pretty chessy setup if u ask me. this is wat I did, because I did a little at a time. I pushed one about 1/2 inch then the other back n forth onto a piece of card board n then mixed with a screwdriver. work for me

You should be using a dispensing gun for the adhesive, most body shops have these handy.... perhaps you can borrow one, makes the install much easier..

Its actually not epoxy but urethane adhesive to be used between the two (ring/port) panels.
