That does look great. It's a clean low profile, pro and modern looking.

I used a single gland and one gommet to seal and protect the wire. The silicon job is messing but it works, it just rained, no leaks.

I am old school to me that seems like it would kinda cause more turbulence when highway driving, but the single gland thing I have never seen before and I like it. I am planning on adding a CB radio for a long trip we have planned for the future and was wondering how to run the antenna cable. Now I know so Thanks for posting the pictures. Good luck on your lights.
