Hi Jack as Jimi says you don't need to, however just make sure your rubber boots on the back are secure and back on as best you can, as that will cause the fogging!

And as for the interior thanx mate

Saw both ther fronts and sides I want on Amazon cheaper so going for it... will post the link in a bit. The sides are the crystal clears rather than the whitish ones (as prev discussed). What did you do for your sides Shaun I forget?? was it just the whitey ones??
