Hey gang did some work recently and thought I'd share. Made my own grill insert, lost the trash can, put an amplified antenna under the cowl, and did some customizing of the rear reflectors while I was at it. I thought I'd share some before pics from right after I brought the Stormtrooper (thats what my kids and I call the tb) home. I plan on doing the crossbar, headlights, and a de-badge in the next couple weeks. Was debating doing the wiper arms white too. This weekend is the hundered thousand mile tune up...

Looks good!
I did the mesh to my reflectors also but I lost one.
So I made some vinyl mesh to cover mine.
Hey that just gave me an idea I should make some out of my black reflective vinyl!
I now have white reflective if anyone is interested.

How did you do the reflector mods? I love the way it looks and want to try it on my own TB.

Same material as grill inserts (hinged gutter gaurd). Remove reflectors, and mark an outline with a sharpie about half an inch around outside edges. cut it out and bend it around the reflector. I used a large pair of needle nose pliars to work my way around and had to trim out the corners so it lay right. Get it so the reflector actualy "snaps" in and out of the guard. (careful not to sratctch them up). I also trimmed a little where the tabs at the top of the reflector are. Test for fit. Then primer, color match, clear, and cure. Install and enjoy!:thumbsup:

Hmmmmm, why would you happen to have black reflective vinyl lying around??!! :raspberry

That sounds pretty cool.

And to the OP, I like the look :yes:

Some jobs are just easier when someone is around to lend a hand.
