Get out the metal cutters ...lol

The center section lighting was originally inspired by Drifter420, however I didn't want to cut the face. Talking to CorvetteCrazy (Rob) he also wanted to do this project. We jumped into it and I cut into the light. Finding that our center tails are all red plastic that is laminated to black behind it was nice. I cut and melted the black off the red.

Lighting...hmmm. I have the lamp monitoring system on my car and more bulbs may cause an issue. Rob suggested LED'*, since he is the of LED'* and he was dropping by for a couple days. Not only did he show me LED'* but also taught me more about voltage regulators.

My center tail will light up the Pontiac with the parking lights and get bright with the brake lights.

Good documenting pics to come.
