I notice someone else posted a thread recently about the lighted SVT sill plates and I love those! However, I don't have the cash to shell out right now so I went the cheap route.

It took me a few times to get the fit decent but install was very simple. Just pull the vinyl off the backing and spray the sticky side with detail spray, then lay it in the insert and dry it off. I used a toothpick to go around the edges and get as much liquid out from underneath as I could. Now I just wait for it to dry and go over the edges one more time with the toothpick and I should be done!

All I can say is it is a heck of a lot easier than paint!

I will take more pics when I finalize the project and post up.

A long time ago, I got a signed Shelby dashplaque. AFTER I installed it, I noticed that they had one extra digit in the VIN number. :doh2: I left it on and called them, sent a photo, and they sent me another one with correct VIN. Then I ordered GT500 sill plate inserts too. Got those, painted the hollow inserts with ALLOY GRAY METALLIC paint. Got busy, forgot about it, and recently during office reno I found them...decided to put them all on today.

So now you have a Carroll Shelby sig you can sell at some point.

Don’t wait to long though, those old fogeys that buy that stuff are old and dropping like flies. :haha:
