NO it hasn't gone on just yet. Figured I'd start a thread for it though.


We'll start with the parts!




Then there was this morning when I returned home







Unfortunately I'm headed to work in about an hour, so hopefully at least the new housings themselves will be installed Sunday.

Don't do what I did and paint the spoiler before test fitting everything ON the car. I'm going to have to do some work with the end caps to make it sit just right (per Mo's suggestion), so I'll end up having to repaint those.













Here are some random installation pics

Test fitting






Ya know... that moment right before you start to drill into your baby?



more test fitting







So heres a good comparison for how dim the bulbs are in the new housings ---- this has NOTHING to do with the lexan pieces, this has to do with the actual bulbs in the ebay tail lights and how dim they are


My 3rd brake light is not that bright (as bright as any other similar body style LX), so this is a good comparison of light output. Needless to say, I have some LED bulbs on the way.

Well, long story short this is how far we got.



Went to charge my drill battery and it's "defective" as 5 other rigid batteries have been. So screw them but no big deal since I have the corded drill. Go in the house to get it and the damn power is out (as it still is now while I type this from my phone). :-(
