Cool

Received my under hood bowtie yesterday from Showstopper. I'm loving it and pics don't really do it justice! A big thanks to Pete!

No I didn't. I had them installed by the shop that installed my Whipple. I can ask how long it took them and if it was very difficult and get back to you.

Ahh ok. Thanks. If it's not that hard I might go ahead and order them with the rest of the stuff I am ordering Monday and install it all while I've got the car on jacks.

He just got back to me and said it took about two hours and was a pain to get the housings open and that you have to be real careful. Good luck if you do it yourself! Did you order the side markers? I have them tinted and painted to match but I'm going to let AAC install them at the Fest.

You're welcome. Might be a wise move on your part to let them do it.

I've read that the sidemarkers are not hard to do if you don't have jumbo arms. If you have a lift, the're pretty easy.

I asked IPS if I could pop mine in while my car is on their lift next week.

If you're going to the fest anyway, then it's probably easiest to let them do it.

I don't have a lift, and I figured since they're offering a free install on the side markers and footwell lighting I'll let them install both for me.

I'd love to get the footwell lighting.

Do you know if they'll install the afterburner taillight LEDs if I send them my taillights?

I'm not sure. Send Jonathan a PM and ask. I don't see why they wouldn't.

AAC has 2 types of afterburner taillights: SMD and CCFL.

http://www.automotivelightstore.com/afterburner.aspx

Which do you recommend?

I went with the CCFL and when I ordered Jessica of AAC said that the CCFL seemed to be their most popular.

There are several ways to go about installing these and it really is not difficult at all. I did mine myself and there really isnt much to it. You can put the housings in the oven and try to pry them apart after some low heat or you can go the route I went and take a dremel with a small cutting pad and cut at the seam for a very easy and clean cut and them epoxy them back together after installing light strips which are just adhesived to housing and connect your wires.

I pm'd aac to ask if they install. I might just send them my taillights this week if they'll do it. It's in the shop for work anyway. If AAC and turn them around in less than 2 weeks, I might do that.
