The magnets I ordered look too small. Which dimensions are yours?

First of all sorry for took so long :(...

Hmmm let me google a bit... http://www.ebay.es/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 0665883910 They were EXACTLY like this ones.

So...

Length: 20 mm.
Width: 10 mm.
Hole: 3,5 mm.
Thickness: 5 mm.
Weight: 7,2 gr.
Gauss: 3.700
Strength: 3,6 kg.

Be VERY gentle with the magnets, because they will break into parts if you play with them doing some things like approaching one to other from maximum distance etc... if they come out for you in a pile, release them carefully ok? ;)

Greetings and good luck!

I just ordered my blackout from Mike H. I also ordered some pieces to make my turn signal covers. This will be my spring project. I have to find a way to make my templates for the turn signals, so far I tried using paper and just cant get the fit right.

I am not sure how much different each builders turn signal areas vary. I would guess that the top part near the hood and both sides are identical to the factory and the bottom area is in question. I thought about trying to use some sort of mold (not sure what to use) to fill in the area and then be able to remove it to get an accurate mold to make a template.

This looks great. Did you leave the outer clear lens on the lights or remove? How did you recess the lights so the blackout sits flush with the car body?

Thanks
