Nice! That's what I want to do. Where did you get the lights for the reverse lights?

I got the lights from fierostore.com but you can go anywhere and get any lights that you like. Dont choose them on looks because they are hidden. Choose for lighting performance. I used to have a fiero and had a couple sets laying around from that car because I used to use them to replace the pop up lights with these. Just make sure you use a relay so you dont overload the circuit.

could you tell me a bit more about that relay? didn't you say that is a projector HID? i dont know that I'd want something quite that bright lol i'd go down to wally world and pick up something for 20 bucks. looks like you made a bracket for it too, i'd probably want mine to sit more in the middle rather than on the bottom tho, i dont know if that would be possible, haven't looked yet

well you also need to do the "lunchbox delete" or your exhaust will be right there. Its just a simple 4 prong relay. What do you mean by more in the middle?? Up and down or left and right?? I have white LEDs mounted inside my reverse light so they kinda light up as reverse lights but arent really that bright at all. Just did it so people would stop telling me my reverse lights where out and then explain the entire thing to them. Got kind of annoying. And you can use a 916?? amber bulb for the signals. Can get it right at autozone. Once you get into it you can see how you need to make a mounting bracket for the drivers side. Its just some steel I had laying around and bent up.

I have a FS exhaust, so that's not a problem lol.

How much room is there in the reverse light? I was thinking I could put an LED in each corner (4) and run that into one wire I wonder if that would be bright enough.... I could just run that off the reverse wire, and maybe run a switch up next to where the halo switch is right now, so if I need to see where I'm backing up, I can just hit the switch. Or if someone is pissing me off. Lol

I very highly doubt that would be bright enough. I have flamethrowers in my SRT-4 dual exhaust for tailgaters so that wasnt a concern for me. I would get lights and do it like I did. I like your idea so people dont always tell you that your reverse lights dont work and you will have awsome lighting too.

You don't think 4 of the brightest LED's (probably wide angle) woudl be bright enough to light up the housing? shoot I could probably put more than 4 in there. I'd just have to see how I could get it to work. I'd need some sort of base. Wish I could find a cheap set of stock tail lights to pick up so I could mess with them... one of mine is cracked anyway

www.car-part.com Are you planning on using mounted fog lights along with the LEDs?? They will light up the housing but wont give you much light to see with when you are backing up. If the reverse lights are a reflector housing it may work better. You will just have to experiment. The big problem with LEDs is the light is so direct.

well I'm gonna get 4 superflux LEDs, there's 4 leds on each, so there will be 2 superflux per lens facing towards eachother, I would think that'd be bright enough to make the hosuing light up. As far as seeing where I'm going... I mean it's not like the stock bulbs are bright enough either, I'll prob. wire up some fogs

I am working on doing this, but I was wandering if the blinkers flash like normal when done, or do they flash really fast? Currently mine are flashing really fast like there is a bulb burnt out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
JFrye
