I've seen it done before, can't find the pic though. It takes some work to look right.

If you can find that pic I would love to see. I think I would put it in the quarter window panel. Since I never use those. I think I want a fabtech brush grille I'll find a pic and post it.

He still had the wing windows, he just had a plate over the front of them. He also had the newer 08+ square ones with the signals.

If you can find a pic of that I would love to see it. The Quarter window is where I would actually like to use. Since I never use it any way. Also how would I be able to pull that dent.

Weld on some studs and use a slide hammer to pull it out

I was wrong, he plated over the whole window. It doesn't look terrible, but it needs the plastic formed to cover the whole plug.

Ya it defiantly would need the plastic to form. This is my moms 6.0L excursion, I love the mirrors and now that you showed me that I'll defiantly have to form the plastic.
