I have a pair of Don's super dooper sail panels to go in the Eliminator

I figure that since I have them out I could put in some rear courtesy lights. Unfortunately I don't have another set of XR7/decore panels to use as a pattern

Could someone help with the position and dimensions of the hole for the courtesy lights.

I need the following dimensions
  • A - horizontal distance along the lower edge from the lower front corner to the centre of the hole for the lights
  • B - vertical distance from the lower edge to the centre of the light cut-out - measured from where the centre line disects the lower edge
  • diameter of the cut-out for the lights

A picture would help - particularly if the hole isn't circular

OK Here it is

Tools needed

- 45mm hole saw
- modelling knife
- ruler
- square
- pencil


Mark out the centre of the hole



Dimension A - Horizontal = 210mm
Dimension B - Vertical = 100mm
Hole diameter = 45mm (1 3/4")
These dimensions may not be the same as factory for XR7/Decore

Carefully cut out the hole with hole saw. Go slowly so you don't cut through the vinyl



Do a test fit

Make cuts in the vinyl working from the centre to the edge of the hole to create segments. Fold over and glue to back of hole



Fit the light unit





Test fit into position on c pillar



Don't forget that they are designed to go around the pinch weld so If you don't have the glass out in the rear you mighthave to attach them with double sided tape
