      Yeah. Just the part below the red line. The mask piece. And then also while I had that off, I sprayed the white part of the bumper behind it, so you can't see that through the honeycomb.

      I Converted all of my interior lighting to white LEDs and added forward footwell lighting.

      The work I did today was definitely an "illuminating" experience.

      I learned that the license plate light bulbs are also part of the monitoring system that tells you when a bulb is burnt out...the LED festoon bulbs that I bought triggered that warning light when they were installed...oh well.

      they come off the same sensing section as the city lights so if you have error cancelling LEDS in there it will always have a draw and think everything is good.

      I took mine out completely and never got a bulb out warning. Fog light, city light and tail light bulbs all did though.

      had new tires put on. Yokohama YK580s. The first 15 miles have been good. Quieter than the old Michelins, and tons more grip off the line.

      The Michelins were H rated, and actually fairly good on corners, but just dog crap off the line. And I am just Stage 1.

      The new tires are W rated, and even better in the corners.
