Dash Panel Swap -- FOR ANYONE LOOKING TO DO ABL MOD

Hey guys, I have decided to go a different route on my ambient lighting. I am looking to trade dash panels with anybody else who hasn't done, but is looking to do the ABL mod. You give me your stock silver dash panels, and you get the ABL-ready dash panels. Makes the mod a million times easier, as now the most time consuming, tedious part is done for you. Please PM
me if any of y'all are interested. Thanks guys and gals!!

Im interested but curious about how it was completed. Shouldnt you not even be able to tell the mod was done? Why not just keep them?

I'm thinking Mike should go into a little detail on what exactly has already been done to the panels...

Alright guys, here's the scoop. The panels have been sanded at the top 1/8", and are perfectly clear so that they show the light pipe through them. The reason I want to swap them out for the non abl panels is because I am keeping the lighting, but changing the way it is set up. So to answer your question, no you can't tell that they are any different except at night. However, since I am keeping the lighting and changing the way I install it, I need stock panels.
