Default A few updates..

Well, I haven't really posted much about my car in the last couple months.. mainly because things have gotten slow since the cold weather moved in.

During christmas break, one of my ballasts stopped working, so I had to take my HIDs out What a difference going back to halogen bulbs! I quickly modded my Eurolite high beam bulbs to fit in the low sockets, so at least my lights are somewhat bright again, and have a very pale blue tint to them. My ballasts have a 2 year warranty on them, so I'm sending the dead one back, and its going to be repaired/replaced. Good enough. haha.

I also got my drivers' side rocker panel fixed over christmas too. It came out well. Can't really even notice that it was rusted in the first place. It was really bad in spots, and this was just a temporary fix. I'll probably order the molded piece and replace the whole thing. Even the lip in places was rusted off

I finished another step in my blacking out all the trim the other day by installing some Reflective Concepts black reflective letters in place of the chrome BUICK letters in my back bumper. They came out pretty good.



I also made another attempt at my interior lights over the last two days. I installed two purple strips in the trunk to replace the trunk light. I plan on adding two more that I had to help light it up more eventually.





I also finally got my LEDs installed under my seats. I have them hooked up to plug into the second 12v dc plug I added a few months ago. They came out really good. I was expecting them to be really bright and distracting, but they glow perfect.



That'* all for now. My next project will probably be the rest of the lights in the trunk, if the weather warms up at all.

Thanks for looking

Travis

Looks great. I'm sure the blue looks even better in person.

Thanks! It does look a lot better. It was hard to get a decent picture of it because it'* more of a "glow" than a bright light. Plus, after being out in the cold for about 2 hours, it was a little hard to keep my phone steady to get a clear(ish) pic. lol

Thanks. They are much better than the one 194 bulb that was in there before. Haha

Thanks bud. I think my ballast wasn't quite right since I got my kit..that one seemed to have a weird connection and used to flicker every now and then.. where did you get yours?
