Default Avoiding rear window embarrassment!

Have you ever pulled up to the drive in window for your morning caffeine, and accidently lowered the rear window? Well, I made a simple mod that changes that. Took two small self adhesive velcro squares and carefully cut to fit the top of the rear window switches. Now my fingers can tell front or back window switches just by feel. Very inconspicuous and effective!

I always end up locking and unlocking the doors and windows.... and those buttons are even shaped differently!

Glad I'm not the only one doing this. I've even gone the other direction and pressed the lock/unlock buttons when trying to lower the windows.

A photo. Used the "hook" side of velcro, those with delicate fingers might want the softer "loop" side, lol.
