I forgot to get pictures last night so they will have to wait for tonight. This is how I mounted them, though.

Cut a piece of metal fascia and mounted the pod to it with the glue backing and zip ties.



Mounted the fascia using the bolts that that hold the Svt side skirts on.



Better picture from farther away. The wires are all run behind the lip of the frame.



I used four pods. The front jacking point is before the first pod and you can see all the scuff marks from the rear jacking point. The wires may get in the way when jacking but I'll just have to be careful when picking up the car.

looks good.. i like that mounting idea.

are you going to paint match the brackets?? or just not worry about it since they are so low..
i just know you aren't afraid to do some painting....

and only 4 pods?? nice.. i might have to do more since i'm lower.. so there is no dead spots..

Meh. I'm don't think I'll paint them. You can't see them unless you get down on your hands and look. Plus the black blends into the shadows nicely already.

As you can probably tell in the "teaser" picture, there are some slight dead spots between the pods but it's not bad at all. The pods on the other side should help with that a little more as well. You mentioned they make single LED pods; if the dead zones really get to annoy me, I may ask to get some of those to put in between the larger pods. Just an idea, though.

yeah, they have singles and the triples...

and yeah, yours doesnt have bad deadspots...
but since i'm 2" lower or so.. it would be more noticeable.
looks like i will have something to mess around with in the next month.
