ok this is my first little write up thing ..i thought i would do this being that i did not want to spend $15 each on euro bulb sockets
and $25 each for the plug, connector w/leads ...so that $30 for bulb sockets
and $50 for the plug,con.... stuff..so
this saved me $80

ok so the hole on the back of the euro one is much bigger then the us one



so being that they are about the same size around ,not the hole but the outside..i used a Dremel to cut the top of the us turn sig off ,just i little below the top





once i got the "disk" off i sanded it smooth and made it look nice



after it was sanded i cleaned off the dust and spay painted them black



once they were dry but still a little tacky stuck the "disk" to the back of the euro turn sig



once i had them where i wanted, i used plastic welding to tack it then weld
them (melt them) all the way around



once i had it welded on good i sanded down the welds a little to make it look a little better..then you can paint the backs of them if you want so it looks better..
so now i have euro turn sigs to fit into my wrc bumper,that will fit
my us spec. lights and not have to spend the extra $$$



IF YOU DONT KNOW ABOUT PLASTIC WELDING
all you realy need is a soldering gun or iron
i got a little butane one for about $20 from home depot
alll you do is preaty much melt the 2 togeter


let me know what you think
so i hope this might help someone ..
cause it saved me $80

just kinda hold it to the plastic and let it melt a little
togetter and push a little into the plastic and then
the plastic that gets pushed out kinda try to work
it back in once you got it stuck together good you
can go over what you did to melt down stuff
to smooth out your weld..
does that help out a little
