Stillen Covers

Hey guys, i just ordered a pair of stillens for my 07 wk and i wanted to know if there was an easy way to get the sides cut so the light can come thru for the blinkers. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas??

Re: Stillen Covers

I remember seeing someone try this, and they had someone professionally do it, and I guess it turned out like crap. Good luck with the project, post pics when your done

Re: Stillen Covers

that was me that had them professionally cut. The guy cut the tape line exposing the whole side marker and then about a 1/4" more in the front. There is a indent as a template. The best thing to do is cut them with a dremmel and be very carefull. I cut out my second set using different bit to get the best and smoothest cut.

Also, I will be selling my 1st set in a few weeks when I cange out my front bumper, pm me if interested, they are PB8 midnight blue

Re: Stillen Covers

i botched up a set of stillens for my ride. i was cutting out a lil slit for the corner light to show through (about a 1/4 inch) on my final cut with the dremmel - it cracked on me.

as for template, i just did what scott said with white a piece of chalk

gl bro, just dont phuck it up like i did, i was rushing and had other things in my head
