    Sorry I didn't answer earlier, yes, fully removable, no adhesive, it is a static cling. use the soapy water so you don't have air bubbles messing up your view. by using the soapy water, it will slide around really easy for a day or two til it dries

    What happens when it dries? Can you easily remove it? does it leave any residue? can it be reused?

    No residue. You can reuse it, just wash it with warm soapy water. Imagine just sticking a thick piece of plastic wrap to your glass... if you put a little drop of dish soap in a spray bottle of water, spray that on your glass. Put the lens where you want it, hold it in place while you use your drivers license to squeegee the air bubbles out from under it. Wipe up excess with paper towels. It'll dry in a couple days then you can use glass cleaner and clean everything up without fear of sliding it around. When you want to take it off, just hook it with your fingernail and Peel it off. Wash the glass with glass cleaner wash the lens with soapy water. It basically sticks on like a suction cup.

    Monkeyfart13, good looking kj. Where did you get the stereo surround to fit a normal single din stereo?
    Mind if i ask you for the part number of the mopar tail light guards?

    I did a lift for R650. if you convert it direct it comes out to more or less $90.

    Sold my 245/70/16 bfg a/t's and bought 4 new 15'' wheels and took over a set of 31/10.5/15 bfg a/t's from a friend and paid in $100, R700.

    I built a custom GPS mount from a goose neck lamp that broke, part of a vent mount that kept falling off in a spirited turn, and some metal.
    [​IMG]
    I found the goose neck wasn't strong enough to support the nuvi 650 so I but a solid 10 guage wire up inside. It still wasn't enough so I used a rubberized wire clamp attached to the dash.
    The power source is hard wired into the on al the time dash power outlet with an toggle switch in the dash to shut it off. This way I can charge phones, etc without the key being on.

    Made it look stealth.
    used some old window tint I had laying around,
    and water with a pinch of dish soap
    so pretty much a free mod(for me)
