Default updated wagon templates

Hi all,

I've updated the templates and moved them 1/2 inch lower on driver's and passenger's side like I said I would in the readme file.

Here's the two new gifs:





PLEASE NOTE these templates are for the GG wagon. NOT for the GD sedan. If someone is willing to volunteer their GD sedan I can probably make some up for the sedan sometime.

Also, some have reported printing problems.

Please click on the below two links directly, and print LANDSCAPE 8.5" by 11" and you should be fine.

As far as the plugs go, what I did is used normal female plugs snipped in half. They were a bit too wide for the Marker male plugs. I snipped the female sides in half and they fit very snug onto the markers.
Thanks to Dendrobium for the template. I did use them and they came out perfect. When you're cutting the holes, start out short and keep trying to fit the template making adjustments as you go along. The heat of the dremel will burn the paint around the edges of the hole so if you want, you can put masking tape down first, put down the template, and then cut. If you want pics of it installed, Pm me.
It is a little scary doing this mod, but if you use the templates evrything will be fine. Good luck to all who do this!

JC,
We should put a few dents on your wagon first, it will be less painful doin' the cutting.

Hey XMEDIC!
I'll get those pics to you tomorrow. This mod is real easy guys. You just have to build up enough courage to hack into your beautiful car. Obviously, when you get one side done the other will be a breeze. Good luck!

Hey, does anybody have any further advice on the install and wiring. I'm going to look for the connectors, where do you splice into turn signal harness? anything else to know? I'm getting ready to cut and want to figure the whole process out first...
Thanx, Jefe'

Is this the set of sidemarkers and fender markers?
http://www.japanparts.com/Pic/pic078/015-002.htm

Or just the fender markers?
http://www.japanparts.com/Pic/pic078/015-001.htm

Or did you have to contact them directly? Just trying to figure out which ones match the stock orange ones that we have (yellow or gold?) or go with a full set that matches. Any idea which ones looked smoked (silver or urban white)? Thanks!
