I'm looking for a way to install a Warn Fairlead cover with a Viking Offroad safety thimble snugged up against the fairlead rollers. I was thinking I could notch out the center of the fairlead cover so the leading edge of the thimble pokes through the front of the fairlead cover.
Has anyone else done this? Or come up with a way to stop water from getting into the winch box through the fairlead?

I didn't like having this much synthetic line exposed to the elements with the winch line mounted this way

And yes, I know I need some lights to fill the holes in the bumper.
