Here you go guys. I like the look thus far even without the outers done. Will do the outers most likely when I have a chance. Threw in an odometer photo too. Been getting a lot of questions about the 14K mile line in my sig.

What'd think? Does she need a spoiler? I'm debating it, just don't want to drop $200 on one too badly.

I've received several positive comments about the fronts after I cleared them. Just gives it a more aggressive, cleaner look up there. Rear'* too.

DO IT!

I got the center piece cleared this weekend:



My image hosting site is giving me problems today. I have more how to pic'* I'll post later.

I have'nt got my LED'* in the mail yet. I'll let you know how they work. If they aren't as bright as they need to be or I have turn signal problems I'm going to sent them back and just use standard bulbs in red, and try the spray paint trick.

I'll figure something out. It looks to darn good to not work.

Turk.. I've recently done some led work with CorvetteCrazy. Are these full led bulbs or just the led'* themselves?

If the led'* are seperate or you don't think they are bright enough. Depending on the voltage tolerances you can use a voltage regulator and resistors to change the intensity.

This is what I bought:



They are supposed to have the resistor'* built in. I'm not good with electronics, (lights, radio, etc.) If I can't just plug it in and have it work, I'll probly send them back. I don't want to have to splice wires to get them to work.

I see the voltage regulators for sale on the site were I bought my LED'*, Whats involved in hooking them up?

those should be nice and bright. I've seen tractor trailers with those types of bulbs.

Only concern is light dispersion like others have mentioned. Hope it works out.

The are the wide angle and are supposed to reflect backward to fill the lense better, so we'll see.
