    Hello Everyone and Thanks for stopping by.

    I've been getting a lot of requests for a install guide for the Map Lights, Rear Dome and Trunk LEDs.

    Alright lets begin.

    Tools: Something flat and plastic. Anything really. as long as its long and flat.
    Difficulty: Easy (1/5 stars)
    Product: TypeRLEDs.com or your choice of LEDs. (hehe)

    Step 1: Map Lights

    Step 2: Push in the Map Light as if you were turning it on. Push it again to turn it off but this time HOLD it in.

    Step:3 Insert your flat tool. into the opening of the map light cover.

    Step 4: Gently pry the cover off the hinges. Should pop out. and reveal the bulb. Replace the bulb with your LED and you're done :]

    Dome LED Panel Install:

    Step 1: Dome light cover

    Step 2: On the opposite side of the switch. there are small grooves you can see. Take your flat tool and wedge it between the cover and the outside gray trim.

    Step 3: Slightly pry and it will remove the cover. Once remove you can install your LED light or LED PANEL. Lay the LED Panel flat on the cover and centered. Then reinstall the cover. and you should be finished.

    TRUNK: loocate your trunk light. Look for a groove or indention in the plastic housing.

    It should be on the short side of the rectangular housing. Insert your flat tool and pry open. The housing should come off.

    Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions or anything to add feel free to do so :]
