it would have been a dealer installed thing. and yes the dealer would have done it to make the sale. as could have anyone else. but it they were on the car they would leave more of a mark then 4 holes. as were have not seen it it would be had to say.

ED I am with you four holes NO five yes you need a hole for the wire. My point was never say never on Pro cars unless a fleet order most were one of one spec wise. So low production and "The customer is always right". The lights COULD have happened.

True, anything is possible. But in this case I think you all are right. I need to keep my eye open for accent stars.

Some one has removed the stainless trim. but maybe one can't tell from this close a shot replaced it with the S&S wood grain aluminium one. The did not put it all on should be a chrome piece around it as i recall. Of course the top would. Be different and it would not have been as easy to put it on.
