Thanks! I'm no pro at it wasn't hard to figure out either. The strip fits perfect into the slot...the only down fall us that it's not V shaped so it doesn't fit like the first scanner that came out.... Hear that AAC?



Btw I used my drill and bit the same width as the LED

In AAC's defense, they never said it was custom made to the SLOT, that they WILL HAVE on soon, but heck for the MOO LAA this light costs, it's worth the effort for the cutting....

Secondly, great HOW TO guide on the install!!!

Nice ride as well!

Use some of the thin 3M on the back of the scanner, prep the painted surface of the bumper with a alch swab and adhesion promoter.

This works best if you work outside on a hot day because the bumper and scanner will be slightly more flexible.

Cut the plastic backing of the 3M tape in the center of the "V" and peel it back slightly to leave 1"-2" "tails" sticking up. Line the scanner up and working from the center-out peel the tail back as you push the scanner to the bumper. It helps to have a helper peel while you stick.

If you complete these steps it will be a factory finish.

I just got mine in from AAC. I'm having it installed by a professional. They were concerned about the cutting and how it would look. They also asked about any problems with the strip bowing out from long term stress after time and heat. Have you had any problems with this?

When you put the black trim piece back in the slot it covers the slits, you can't tell it was ever there

I know I ask this about all of your products but is there a way to diffuse the LEDs on the scanner and also on your fog lights?
