How do you mount it in the car? Reuse the stock latches and strip?

Yes, you remove the old lexan from the frame and slide this one in...quick and simple.

Sounds good.
Is it too much to ask for a picture with the amber LED?

This picture is Wallace River's (I hope he doesn't mind), but this one looks identical

Thank you, sir!

It is a very nice mod and your picture is my favorite, hands down! The amber goes so well with the yellow paint and the roll bar (and I bet it looks great with the stock interior lights, as well).

What's the difference between 1st and 2nd generation?
The LED? Power supply? Design?

2nd gen has a harder coating and is more resistant to scratches, which is why I'm selling this at 1/2 price. That said, this first gen seems just fine. I've cleaned it a couple times with no issues.

Jesus Christ, this is sexy. First time I see a pic of the Amber on a speed yellow boxster set-up Wallace. Completely-in-love x1,000. I've dbl chk on the other thread and there it was. That pic never really fully loaded when I was on that page and missed it until Charles posted it (I use a VPN to access the forum from China and depending on the day/time traffic this thing is not always reliable)

Simply amazing combo (go go amber & speed yellow). Thanks for sharing this Wallace, a keeper at this end mate
