This is a mod i have been planning on for a long time now. Had a weekend when i was leaving the car behind so decided to go through with it. Took the center section with me and knocked it out in a couple hours.
I added 16 5mm red LED lights to the center section. When i get the 2 stock bulbs changed to LED, that'll make 18.
Started out by taping off the rear and marking evenly
where i wanted the LED lights. This was probably the hardest part b/c i had to make sure the lights were evenly spaced across the width.
Once i had it marked out correctly, i used a small drill bit to run pilot holes for the larger bit. This part i actually did with my hand, just spinning the bit between my fingers to make sure it stayed on the mark.
Once i had all the pilots done, i moved up to the 1/4" bit. This size was perfect for the holders b/c when i pushed the LED's in they were tight enough to hold themselves in place.
Inserted the LED holders, then the lights.
Touched off each one with a dab of silicone to seal them in place and keep any moisture out. Once that dried, of course i had to "test fire" them to make sure it was right.
Finished product back on the car. It'll really look finished when i get the stock locations switched over to LED as well. I'm planning on using (2) 4 LED 194 bulbs which will bring the total to 24.
