Actually, with v2s your white boxes will be different (sorry, just revisiting this thread now) unless you opt for the $40 dimmer option. The v2s come with a 4 female and two wire white box.

Also for sealing, for those of you lucky bastards with E92s, just use butyl. You can order them online, or most of the time, local Nissan dealerships stock butyl. Whether it be throwing it back in the oven or heat gun, it's much easier to deal with, plus it's what the glue is originally.

I can't decide whether to have the inner ring have the blank led gap on the top or bottom...

yes I cleaned out the previous sealant and used a new one, also I epoxy the bigger ring onto the inner ring, which I painted black so you can't see it

How's your turn signal visibility? That's one of the only things that worries me about doing such a heavy blackout on the side piece even though it looks great.
