WTF the last owner thought is was a better option than having them just pop up on their own

Unbelievable. You could say it's a comment on:
- the "customize" craze that is the US of A
- the relative value of Plus 2s previously
- the relative lack of appreciation for vintage Loti on the part of the PO

At least it does look like he's preserved some of the original opening for you to work from . . . :roll: :( It could be worse: you could have to redo this on a steel car!

Best of luck, and regards,

Randy

I could understand if somebody anted to use LED or some other small-aperture lighting for something that would go under a clear flush cover...but his, no...just...no.

They look as though they were from another car. Or were they baby's potties?
