couple quick pics from the oldies driveway, i had recently removed the black vinyl from the bonnet, got bored i supposed.. still leaving the rest of it though!.. when i get some money together i want to upgrade the system, its not bad for a 9 speaker setup, altho its not enough for me...

Also putting some drls put in @ the front vertical grilles when i got time, and some puddlelights for underneath.

Some new pics taken last week, recently added puddle lights to the box and also some white led strips 1 shining down on the honeycomb grill and the other shining up from the bottom, they all come on with the puddle lights, also got it on a separate switch.. i have bought these aftermarket brake/stop lights where the reflectors used to be, it looks oem and sexy as fk, still need to put some black film over them to match the back.. also plasti-dipped the exterior badges orange, and just some other minor stuff, new pearl orange shift knob.. , i have ordered some orange tint film also, going to do the front headlights and see how that pans out, also going to try some pin striping.. more mods to come, maybe another set of shoes too.

I have some puddle lights awaitin install. How did you do yours?
i basically pulled off the side skirts, ( oem ) by removing the black caps / plugs, i put one of the lights in every second hole, connected all the wiring through, try and tuck them in the side skirt as deep as you can, then i ran all the wiring from the inside of the wheel guard into the engine bay, i also ran a seperate switch for the optional on/off, but they come on with the dome light and fade out with the dome light i also added 2 white led strips shining down from the honeycomb grill and another strip shining up from the plastic guard underneath the bumper as you can see via the pic

Yes please.

My kit requires 3/4" (19mm) holes. My thought, bein in the salt belt, is to make something removable for winters.
sorry for the delayed reply, havn't had time to take pictures but i do have these from ledmod, i installed them the same way

hope this helps, - Jim
