The reason why my rear summer tire was loosing air at the end of last year.
The EAP is slightly bent but the real problem is the small crack. It's small enough, I'm hoping silicone will plug it but we will have to see.



LED's on the hood. The tape is less for mounting than to hide the wires and the white plastic.



How it looks when looking at it from normal height.



And a teaser picture. I should be able to get the other fog light done today.

It's gotta suck to find a crack like that on those nice wheels. And wow, that front end is looking crazy! I'm really jealous. You don't have HIDs on your fogs, do you? I thought about doing that but my 6000k kit gets hot as hell. I'm assuming you're going to illuminate the lower grille soon?

Edit: i can't even find your hood led wires!

Let's see if I can tackle this all. lol

So far, the wheels seems to be holding air fine and there wasn't any thumping coming from it so it's not too out of round. As long as it doesn't leak, it should be perfectly fine.

I have stock bulbs in the fog lights. I've consider putting projectors in but haven't moved ahead with anything yet.

I did put a pod in the lower grill but it's not showing through very brightly. I'll need to play with that more.

The wires are hidden inside the hood bracing. It took some feeding but it looks so much better than having wires running all over the hood.

The pictures of the door wires as requested. Two wires are for the speakers, two are for the blue lighting, and the other two are for the blue/white interior lighting. I rapped them with electrical tape for added protection because they do a lot of flexing when the door opens and closes.

IIRC those little covers don't normally have holes. I've seen someone feed a power wire for subs through one. It worked well, but it actually got wet through there, so he put some silicon on it. Do you have any water issues with that?

No water issues here. I cut small holes in the rubber and plastic so the wires are squeezed pretty tight.

Thanks, and yes, you still want those wheels. I love them even though they still may not be as tough as I "need".

Thanks for the pics. Are you still contemplating the underglow idea? I'm anxious to see it done. On your car at least. It's gonna look mean in the front!

Yes, I'm still planning on it. Don't know when, though. It could be as soon as next week or wait until summer.
