Forgot to upload these! Swapped out the OEM orange side markers for some smoke colored ones with amber LEDs.

Definitely get the smoked side markers from this seller on eBay here. This guy has amazing customer service. The driver side marker he first sent me actually did not "snap" into position (aka defective) so he sent me a new one in 2 days, ended up actually sending me the passenger side, and now today he mailed the correct one (hopefully hehe). Super easy to work with. I'll get you a picture of the reverse lights later tonight. It's a lot easier to tell the difference when it's dark out.

Thanks for the link! One more question before ordering.. - The seller state that it's "direct fit, no modification needed" meaning that the stock light bulb will fit without the need to replace them? Or do i have to buy new light/led? Can't wait to see the backing light, might ask where you bought them :> Love what you have done so far, keep it up!

Thanks

The stock bulb does fit, you don't have to replace them. It's literally plug and play. I only replaced them b/c I still wanted that amber/orange color. Here's how bright the reverse lights are with LEDs. Highly recommend upgrading. Helps with the backup camera too.

Link to horn + sound clip? I avoid using my horn because it's so quite and squeeky
Here: link. You can find sound clips on youtube, this forum won't let me add video clips. I have Hella's supertones, but they also have their sharptones which have a different sound. It's all personal preference.

Nice to see another local to me. What brake lights did you order? Trying to look at LED brake lights as well.

Reverse lights here. I think I might go LED for the brake lights and turn signals.

Windowtint installed! Went 5% on the back three. Didn't touch the front yet, but I might eventually.

Just finished adding some red trim to parts of the dash and the doors. Nice little pop of color for $10.

Wow, I really like that red interior trim. Do you have a link to the red cord, and how did you attach it?

You can buy it on Amazon here. It comes as one long 3m cord. It's super simple, you just push it right into the crevices. Make sure to measure them out and cut as you go.
