Hey Stig, here is the turquoise SJMautoprodcup holder with the blue sharpie and all my GM aqua blue ABL for comparison, I think is pretty damn close if I say so myself

That's like a perfect match. And all you used was a blue dry erase marker?

I used the dry erase for the test,
but for the final install I used a blue permanent sharpie (the brand is sharpie), I just colored one cup holder at a time then wipe some of it with a paper towel, don't let it dry, then do the other cup holder and then wipe it off, the plexy looks perfect, no streaks just looks like the plexy has a blue hue.

Edit... To add picture

That was my original idea, but when I got the cupholder I decided to not mess with the LED's, with my luck I would have broken them.

Honestly, I bought them just because they were a steal. But now that they're installed I'm REALLY liking them. Only downside is that I'm sending more stuff to Alan.

That would be great! I had to search through all your pics to find one that looked OK. A lot of them had trees and a ton of other reflections. As much sun as you can get on it, and as few reflections as possible.

No downside. Trade them to me and you can start fresh with stock panels!

Will do Russ. The car wash place is a pretty flat open area so I will grab some pics there. Thanks again btw, the sig is awesome.

But I like being the only person with ABL carbon fiber panels. You *could* ask Alan to make you a set though I theoretically am getting my black chrome panels back eventually. So we'll see what happens then.
