    Not hard at all. The hardest part is taking the plate off bacause the double sided tape. It is a fun project. It took me 45 minutes each side and that's because I am a perfectionist.
    Look at this link below. The pics might help.

    The door trim pieces just literally pop off and then you'd have to remove the aluminum sill plate and replace it with the new one. It should be a matter of direct plug and play for the lights to actually work. Maybe less than 1 hour total (that's removing most of the aluminum sill and tape residue).

    What port did you plug into to get the power?

    That looks amazing!! Dang...I very well may consider doing this.

    A night time video walk through would be awesome to see. Like opening the door at night to see how it looks proper.

    Looked at the pictures a bit closer @Mucall, did you remove the over gas pedal light power to power the plate? Or does @norm ship with an adapter to support the power for the plate and the over gas petal light?

    I remove the original port to power the door sill and plug in the OEM light . Look at the picture attached. Hope this help. The power still he provided with this have both male and female plugs to connect your original light back in

    Curious, is the lettering still recessed like the OEM sills? I bought the lighted sills from tesland (wasn't aware of Norm's). Mine are not recessed which means an easy overlay of protection film to protect from scuff marks.

    Thanks for the videos! And man that is so cool. Did you do the abstract lights too by any chance?

    I'm curious to see if that is what it looks it like since I'm planning on changing the interior lights with the abstract ocean lights.
