looks really nice. I like your quality workmanship.I went about the rear tail light in a far more complicated way but its not a bad outcome. Just finished it up today. I originally was going to install sequential 1157 bulbs in the trunk light but read about how the electrical draw on the lighting board shorts out the system so I opted to just use the Ballast wires to run most of the 6 RED LED bulbs. The 2 center sockets are just small spade markers, then the middle 1157's are lit just as OEM and the end 1157's light in tandem with the OEM signal bulbs. I was going to put the entire procedure in the How To section but seem to have lost the SD card with all the mod pictures! Its around here some where.... Any way, I put a chrome molding over the LED emitters so its not throwing an eye piercing red beam into folks eyes. The brilliant red LEDs give off a nice red color in the housing. The camera doesn't do it justice at all. The end OEMs are a bit orange in comparison. I also pictured how to repair the broken studs on the back of the housing since that's a major issue with these brittle housings. Gotta find that SD card! Then my driver door handle craped out on me today! Ha, one thing after another....

UPDATE.... I found the SD card. I'll write up a How To Article on how I put 1157's in the light housing. Also how to fix the broken off housing screw studs.
Frankincougie - Mold n Hold - do tell me more please!! Did you happen to take pics when you fixed the rear lasagna issue? I'm going to google now to see what I can find on it, looking forward to hearing your experience with it and wondering if you could post some close up pics of the fixed parts!!!
In advance - thanks!
Swedie, she is beautiful, she doesn't look like a piece of crap or an ugly ducking!! I've got a few silver trim pieces for that front corner light - yours free just get s&h. Of course the plastic piece that adheres it is broke - but I've been able to make it work on my other two marks, I'm sure you could easily find a way to adhere it also.
