Replaced my orange side reflectors - VIDEO

I changed my orange side reflectors yesterday to smoked ones. Obviously not a complicated DIY mod, but here's a video for other newbies like me. Although I would not pay someone else to do it, I must say that it was not fun!! Hahaha

Good job but that was very dangerous. You could have easily chipped a nail and ruin your manicure.

BTW your hair looks good down not so much up in a bun

I didn't want to get in trouble by eliminating the reflectors completely and thought that the smoked ones go well enough with SGM anyways.

Glad to help! The first reflector is challenging and then the second side is a breeze

Agree with colour coded, so glad we don't have these in the UK.

although color-matched reflectors would have looked better IMO, you did a great job installing these and also nice job with the vid!
