JS2k.com Windscreens
IMPORTANT: You CANNOT have the Secret Compartment open when you are moving the soft top with the Tall JS2k.com Windscreen.
1. Put the top down.
2. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the screw covers on each side of the windscreen to expose the screws.
3. Remove the two screws.
4. Use a credit card, paint scraper, or a plastic pry tool and start prying the sides of the black part of the windscreen.  This may take some time, patience, and elbow grease.  Be careful not to allow your tool to slip and gouge yourself or the windscreen.  I used a paint scraper, and it took 15 minutes the first time to separate the housing.
5. Once the housing has been separated, remove the three screws holding the windscreen.
6. Replace the old windscreen with the JS2k.com Windscreen.
7. Screw the three screws into the windscreen to secure it.
8. Use a bit of clear silicone adhesive on the two edges of the black housing.  We recommend clear silicone because it's clear and it is easy to remove if you wish to go back to stock.
9. Apply a piece of tape to both sides of the housing to hold it together for at least 12 hours so the clear silicone will dry.
10. Remove the tape after 12 hours.
11. Reinstall windscreen, and screws, and screw covers.
Notes: You can open the secret compartment without folding the Tall Windscreen down when the top is up.  With the Tall Windscreen, top operation is not affected.

1. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry open the trunk light.  There is a handy pry spot on the right side of the housing.
2. Remove existing bulb.  Caution: The bulb may be hot!
3. Determine the polarity of the LED strips.  You can do this by touching the ends of the wires to the car battery or a 9V battery.  If the LED lights up, the wire that is connected to the positive end is positive, and same for negative.  If not, reverse the wires. 
4. Remove the double sided tape on the LED strips and adhere it to inside of the trunk, making sure the wires are long enough to reach the stock light socket.
5. Twist the positive ends of the trunk LED strips to one of the wires on the wedge base.

7. Cover both ends with electrical tape.

Hyperblink Fix

Use the included vamp taps to splice each end of the hyperblink fix wires to each wire that leads to the turn signal socket.  Mount the Hyperblink fix ideally to metal, and definitely away from anything flammable, as this will get hot.
