    Oh No!!!

     

    Sounds like my issue when I went on my first big road trip in my car... rock hits windshield, ding is off to the left in the black part of the windshield.  Get out at rest stop, close door, and crrrrack... nice crack down the corner of my windshield.  And then one of my fog lights was cracked too... happened on my way back from Tucson for IFO back in March. 

     

    Hopefully you can get everything fixed quickly and cheaply.

    Not sure how I missed this thread all this time. Awesome mods! I'd love more info/pics of how you did that cargo led strip. I haven't found a suitable way to provide more light to that area.

    @ Little - Thanks, a little wait on the windshield but I'm getting ideas for a new set of lights...

    So here is a quick write-up on how I placed my trunk led light strip, from my previous pics you can see it below the hatch glass.

     

    Remove the plastic hatch cover, 2 screws and some hidden clips that come off easily.

    I fished the LED wires through the weather boot into the hatch & into the trunck light fixture, the latter was a little tricky.

     

    2014-05-26102502_zpsee4da0d6.jpg

     

    I wired it to the trunk light with 2 taps

     

    2014-05-26102534_zpse45fb176.jpg

     

    Red wire from LED to Red wire on trunk light, Black wire to one of the 2 Orange (50/50 chance) I got it wrong the first time.

     

    I then placed my LED strip onto the plastic cover thus when I open the hatch it shines into the cargo area. I purchaced them from Diode Dynamics as a matching set for my entire interior.

     

    Hope this helps, if anyone has any questions just let me know.

     

    As always thanks for looking & Happy Memorial Day fellow veterans and patriots!

    Nice, that's awesome.  Keep up the good work.  You should do some DIY writeups that we can share on the socials and such, it drives traffic.

    Will be upgrading to the 2017 Sorento very soon so it's so goodbye from the Big Jer. Maybe I'll see you on the Sorento forums...

    Happy Holidays Hamsters
