It's off to the painter today to get my Roto-Fab engine cover fixed up. I didn't have it secured to the fuel rail and it was sticking up so when I closed the hood it came in contact with my Emblempros bowtie! It actually happened last year I just haven't done anything about it. I can be a real procrastinator about some things! Priorities!

Teaser pic! While I'm at the painter.....not gonna say! You'll see! It might be Spring though before I'll post final pics! I'm waiting on installing the Oracle ghosted sidemarkers till I get a clear wiring diagram that shows detailed connection points for the Dual Intensity Circuits (DIC) as Oracle calls them. With it installed it will make the sidemarkers also turn signals.

I see you disassembled the vents. Something getting painted?
Also, be prepared for the amber front side markers to appear very dim when not at full intensity. Mine are noticeably dimmer than the rear red ones. I am not running the dual intensity circuit, but mine are shining through black paint. I was advised that if I wanted them to pop more, I could sand them a little and then re-coat them with clear. The DI circuit doesn't make them brighter, it makes them dimmer when signal is not on.

Yes something is getting painted! As far as the DIC goes do you know if there are any videos that demonstrate the intensity of the led's? I think mine might show a little brighter through RJT but probably not much!

I checked the website and didn't see any vids. Do you have these on your 45th?
Edit: I just read your post and see that you have the sidemarkers but not the DIC's

Installed the Oracle LED sidemarkers today! This was one of the easiest mods I've done so far! Just pop the stockers out with a screwdriver in the wheel well for the fronts and unscrew 1 screw from under the rear wheel well, pop out the fender section, then use a screwdriver to pop out the assembly for the rears! To install the new ones it's simply plugging the harness in and popping into place! It was a little bit of a PITA to get that screw out because I'm lowered 1 1/2" so wasn't much room! Also it was tough to unplug the connector from the stock ones!

The fit and finish on the Oracles is good and I think they look pretty bright when lit. I'm still on the fence about using the DIC circuits for use as turn signals. I'm afraid they will be too dim in signal mode. I'll need to see a demo before doing it and I'm still waiting for some kind of wiring diagram that's better than the ones that come with the DIC's!

Sidemarkers look good! I was debating getting a pair of these or just tinting my the lenses.

I had tinting on my stock markers and I think the LED markers are way better!
