That looks clean!


Are your license plate lights still running well?

My suggestion, as you will find elsewhere, is to use a set from 42draftdesigns. They make the license plate bulbs that can handle the voltage.

I bought a set from SuperBrightLEDs.com and they lasted about 4 weeks. The set I bought from 42draftdesigns is going on 6 months with no problems at all.

There is also a thread somewhere that goes over the install. If you can find it, I added a bunch of pictures and a semi-walkthrough.
