@misfire ...looks awesome! So im guessing theres no delay between the trucklid led brakelights and the new lights since both are led now?.... It always kinda bothered me that the trunk lid leds lit up a split second before the regular filament tail lights lit up when hitting the brakes..

thanks. its real simple.

remove trunk liners, remove lens (bolted in with 2 nuts), remove old bulb, install new 3157 led bulb (turn lights on and make sure it works. check turn signals/will blink fast until resistor is installed. if its blinks on the opposite side that was turned on, remove bulb and rotate 180 degrees), reinstall lense. wire reistor into wires to light. (one into the green wire and one into the black wire) resistor gets really hot when light is on, so be careful. put trunk liners back in place. have a nice day, lol

I've used the stencil I made a few times. To tell you the truth, the method I used to make one was pretty simple:

1. Took a picture of my Autobots vinyl
2. Put my monitor on its back and traced the outline on a piece of computer paper
3. Cut out the shapes on the paper
4. Used the paper stencil to transfer it to poster board (trace the edges)
5. Cut out the poster board stencil with a razor.

Or, you could find the logo on google and print it on card stock.

Saves a few steps haha.
