Default A few Night Pictures

Took a few night shots of the Rivi. They're not the greatest, but they turned out O.K. I guess. Also got a cool shot of a cool mileage reading!

PERIMETER LIGHTING: These are the lights that turn on up front when you unlock the doors and it'* dark

rear perimeter lighting:

Tail lights as seen at night:

Front corner shot. The light next to the headlight lights up when your turn signals are on to light around turns.

Full Gauge Cluster Picture. I want to change the dash lights to a blue color. Maybe later..

She'* idling in Neutral

3krev

Not very often you see something like this, huh?



EDIT: I've added a poll to this thread. I had an idea after taking some pictures.. it'd be freaking awesome if the outside strip of the taillights lit up for parking lights, and the stock bulbs only lit up for brakes/turn signals. That would be cool as hell IMO. What do you think?

only problem is I'm not so sure how you would get it to do that. Maybe some of that thing neon tubing that a lot of people use in their interiors?

Got some formatting errors there, bud. Try [img] instead of <img>

That would look really cool, depending on the legality of it, though...

Sweet looking ride

You might want to try a ring of led'*?
I think you could remove the piece and drill small holes for the led'*?
The led'* have a ring around them to keep from falling in, a dab of black rtv would keep them there and moisture out.

What tail lights would do you like better?

I think you might want to change that! That is how we all talk in Southern IL, but I don't think the city boys will understand!
Nice pics though! The rear surround looks very cool!

I think I found something that might work to get the effect that I'm looking for. http://www.cardomain.com/item/STGEL15RD
I"m not sure how wide the strip would be, or how bright, but any light around the perimeter of the tail lights would look bad ***.
