To begin, give yourself some space.  Get a pencil ready and bring the template and the side panel you want cut.  Place the template on the panel and trace around the edge.  I used my Enlight 7237 for this review:

If you look closely, you can see the faint pencil mark.  It's also suggested you get some masking tape and place it around the traced edge.  This helps in preventing any sudden marks made by your dremel.  The last picture is the finished cut.  Sand down the edges to a smoother finish with your dremel, you fingers will be a LOT safer later on if you do.

Grab the chrome molding and just pry it open a little and slip it on.  It's very easy compared to rubber moldings we've all seen and used.  I cut off about 6" of the molding, it's not tough so any scissor should do the trick.

I am going to use the Laser Led so the reflective tape will be used, as described by the instructions.  It says to use about 1/2" of it on each side of the window.  Instead of cutting it and then placing it on, I just applied it and then used my Xacto knife to cut the rest off.  Do this for all four edges.

There is a 1.5" notch I left open on the side to allow the LED holder to sit on.  You don't have to use this if you don't have the Led.  If that's the case, you're just about finished with the installation.  You can skip to the next part of this page if so.

To finish up, cut up four small pieces of the included velcro tape.  Place each piece on the corners of the window kit like the above picture.  Keep the orientation of the window in mind so you don't get mixed up in the end.  One side of the window is etched, one side isn't.  I opted to keep the etched side facing the inside of the case.
