My favourite and least expensive mod :)

So, i have been wanting to get pictures up of one of my mods with the biggest visual impact and finally found the time. The total cost was $50, the time was about 3 hours( made some mistakes along the way) but the results speak for them selves.
Picture one is with all lights on:

Picture two is with just the parking lights on:

Picture three is lights off, with the car in gear:

And picture four is lights on and high beams on:


The bottom lights would be brighter, but the passenger side lights are broken, one of the solders broke... too cold too fix at this point tho lol.

I got them from my work... tho you don't have canadian tire in the states... but, pepboys and im sure other automotive stores carry the exact same lights... http://www.pepboys.com/product/details/523521/ The lights are made by Pilot Automotive.. or just Pilot... the bottom light"s" are a 36" strip that i cut into two pieces(i used them are turn signals before i found out how illegal that was) but a 36" strip will fit perfectly under the front bumper of our cars. Inside the grill i used two 12" strips. I then connected the lights to my cars lighting respectively.. can explain how i did so if you would like to know.

Hello fellow Ice blue focus modder, I have done a similar thing... then again I have gone a tad bit overboard with my LEDs













I have mine set up on a wireless key fob to turn both the inside and front ones on.

What else have you done to it?

So... this got a bit strange because... when i did my lights, i was planning on doing my lower lights inside the bumper like you did, but decided against it so its not so crowded when i put in my "fog" lights. Also, i have only a little bit done, money is always tight, but what i have done are: 5% tint on my rear windows, 3" exhaust tip, blacked out grill, smoked rear lights, the led lighting, silver star ultra's, pioneer 6" speakers in the front, added 2 pioneer 6x9 with boxes to the rear.

Now, my plans are:
shaved trunk(badges,logos,third brake)
find an alternate place for my third brake
finish up my sound system(install my sub, amp, deck ect.)
led lighting inside the car
convert all bulbs to led(minus the head lights)
paint the roof and trunk gloss black.

also, yes my name is justin, i take it yours is too? haha
