The back of the car is SOOO dirty these days with the rain. If I get the car washed this week and have time to snap some pics before I go to CES Thursday. I will post.

Car was still dirty last weekend. Washed now, but its dark by the time I get home. I will probably take some real good ones next weekend after in install the sharkfin and finish tinting my lights.

Loving the LED interior lights so far!!! They are awesome. Cant wait to finish the rest of the lighting.

Have you done the visor mirror lamps yet ?
I pulled the mirror to get to the socket but can figure out how to pull the bulb. Seems more stubborn than any of the others.
Any tips ?

I have not done the visors. I read that they are way too bright for right in your face...

Thanks I have heard that too.
How about the 3rd row cargo lamp ?
De-solder and re-soldering with resistor still the most viable approach ?

I did what the one guy showed on the forum. Shave the LED down to the copper leads. Solder the leads of the new LED bulb to the copper leads on the electrical board. Done...

Did you use slim balasts? What size bulbs are the headlights and fog lights? How are the Kensun vs. DDM Tuning vs. others? Are the Kensuns digital AC?

I am looking for those overlays myself. I cannot seem to locate the seller on Ebay. Anyone have idea where else to get the blacked out overlays?

Black Overlays

They are adhesive back AND they dont cover all the way to the body so you need to gloss black tape the exposed 3/16" or so if you want full black.
