did you have to add weather striping or did you just put the panel in and the pipe behind it?

Oh yea, I used little square sections of weather stripping between clips.

The 2LT/SS panels are clear and painted on the back side, so, when you sand the paint off, the light has somewhere to come through. I'm not sure if anyone has done this mod with other panels.

It helps keep the light pipe up at the top part of the trim piece.
