And the trick when drilling the hole for the lights is the locking holes for hole saw necessary to cut the hole that hold the drill bit to the saw itself is the exact size and width of the two mounting holes of the original lights so you can literally bolt the saw to the body trace out the circle and center hole and get a perfectly level cut on either side. Please ignore the goofy drawing we did haha
What about the light for reverse?

A1 Decals... I picked Black for color and 3 inch for the size. Need to trim off " Only in A" saying with scissors. Cost is about $7.50 for both turn signals.

Took all parts out from jeep, cleaned, sprayed as post stated. Even went from spict to black/blue. Looks good for a bit but if u use or drive your jeep you will see. Looks good though. I did mine blue also. Hope it holds up. good luck

I'm doing mine now, I can see it chipping and peeling real easy as well. But it's still going to look better then the faded grey/white what ever the color was I would think.

Mine is not a DD so I don't expect it to get beat up too badly but we shall see.

wow, finally caught up on this thread!
here's what I got so far:

Someone posted a while back about securing the back seat in its folded and tumbled position. I remembered that I had one of these out in the shed, that I used to use on my pickup.

I wasn't sure it could be shortened enough to fit, but it turns out, it can be. Its too long to go between the wheels, but it fits up above. A little awkward getting it in; you have to mind the wiring harness on the driver's side, but it does work, and seems secure. They sell these at HD for 20 bucks.

So I came across this web site when searching for something jeep related...don't remember what, and now I can't find the site. But this person was selling these soft top tools for 25 bucks. Neat idea, but $25!??
I picked up this rod for 2 bucks at HD; bent it up in a vise in about 10 minutes. Now I just need to plasti-dip the handle.

I realized that I already had a good zipper pull in my pocket. This is the pocket knife I've been carrying recently...a Leatherman "Style". note the little caribiner clip...Sure enough, its a perfect fit for the zipper sliders. It wouldn't be helpful popping the drip rails, though.
cost, since I already had it: $0.
if you wanna buy one, they're about 20 bucks.

Anywhere a speaker makes a solid seal you can polyfill behind it.. shouldn't be any fire risk really ..

I have, but they're still pretty stiff around the corners. Plus, one of the windows is really tough to remove, because the zipper doesn't have a retainer at the end, so the pins don't stay aligned. (I was told this was probably a replacement window from a newer model year; they changed the orientation of the zipper).
On top of that, my wife has arthritic hands. There's no way she could unzip or un-clip the drip rails. In fact, I have to drill a small hole in the latch that locks/unlocks the back seat and allows you to fold and flip, so I can attach a "pull" of some sort. There's nothing wrong with that latch, either--I don't find it to stiff at all, but it doesn't take much for her hands.
