    What is the best method to move a hide-a-way from one lens to another? How do you seal the old hole in the lens? Is it even recommended? I currently have amber LED's in the rear amber lens, (2001 silverado) but was thinking of putting them in the clear lens (yeah should of read more opinions first). I am thinking I might get more "pop" from the E series in the clear lens.

    As previously stated, Home Depot has 1" plugs that are pretty cheap. Once you plug the hole, make sure to silicone it as well Thumbs Up

    I concur to 95% of this statement. Use lexel though, not silicone

    The foil tape works well because it almost matches the silver of the reflectors.

    I am torn. I like the fact that the foil tape will match the inside of the foil tape, but I also like the clear (white) 1in plugs. I will see if I can use both. Stay tuned.
