Ever since I've made sure to get rid of excess water quickly and it seems to be OK. The only place I can see water leaking is through the mount for the mat posts.


Once I have arrived back in Anchorage, I'll check my mats. I'd be extremely disappointed if the floor underneath was soaked after the money I spent.

Do your mats have the post mount covers? I got my mats today and it looks pretty well sealed. My new mats have the post mounts enclosed and appear water tight, see below.

Those mats look awesome. I bought the Husky mats but yours look like they fit a lot better.

The post mounts seem like more of a formality, really. The Weathertech mats fit so snug that there is nowhere to slide. I've got them in front, back and cargo area, and and I love them. Definitely not a small purchase though.

Spyder Headlights and Plasti-Dip wheels (Pic Heavy)

Postby Meatloafmountain - March 10th, 2014, 8:34 pm

First, let's take a trip down memory lane and remember what my E looked like when I bought her in Little Rock:

Image

and now:

Image

Plasti-dipped wheels. This was one of the easiest mods to do, and almost had the most dramatic effect besides the grille guard. I watched a couple of Youtube videos, but I found the light, "machine gun" effect the guy was doing with the spray pattern really wasn't my style.

Image

At first, I was going to remove the front wheels but spray the back wheels while they were on the E, but then I realized I would have mismatched lugs.

Image

Image

Image

Not only did it not cover really well per layer, but often times I actually didn't know where the spray was going. I settled on slightly longer, more consistent sprays.

The Spyders were a bit out of my skill level. I've made an effort to do as many mods as I can myself, but I didn't have the expertise, tools or time to weld on the rear bumper guard and I most certainly didn't have the expertise or time to solder/splice headlights. I'm fairly happy that besides those two, the mods have been mounted/done myself.

Image

So, here's the end result. Minus plasti-dipping the front grille, which I didn't do while I did the wheels because I was only comfortable with the whole process after the 3rd coat on the wheels AND the grill looks like it has a ton of plastic clips to get through as well as two very awkwardly positioned screws, her exterior mods are fairly complete.
