ouch.
glad they are taking care of it.

clean looking svt.

for the switches, i would personally go with some basic rocker switches.. but if that is what you like, go for it.

if you need any lighting ideas, let me know. i am kinda an addict.
when i turn all mine on, it glows all the way thru the car.. and the grills.. and under the hood..

Thanks for the compliments.

I have the lights in the footwells and under the front seats(for the back floor) they are way to bright how they are. I got some blue electrical tape to wrap around them to dim them a bit. As for the switches, I like them. I wasn't sure at first but they grew on me.

Since you seem to know a lot about lighting, is there anyway that I can have the accent lights turn on when I turn on my running lights? I think it would be pretty slick.

you could tap into the wire in the headlight switch for the power source, so as soon as you throw the switch on to turn on running lights, they would illuminate and turn off when you turned turned off your lights.

now, i am not sure which wire it would be... but that could be found out with a volt tester or a wiring diagram.


personally, i like this switch

it goes in the pull out "ash tray" above the cig lighter.

I ordered some clear side markers today. Debating on leaving them clear or putting a light smoke tint on them. I have some time to think about it till summer when I get the car back.

Thoughts??

Also ordered a little bit of black vinyl for some eyelids. : )

You should have ordered smoked sidemarkers. Clear ones on a black car don't look right, the actual smoked ones look 100x better than the diy.
