Dude. Why did you put this in off topic?

This belongs in the regular areas of the site.

More traffic and easily worthy of showing there.

Great job. I like what you've done.

I wanted to take the rear defuser off, the top of it LOOKS like vents. IF it were, get a set of leds to put behind the vented section, IF they when all the way through, and tie them to the turn signals from the middle to each side. somewhat like you can get to put below the tailgate of trucks. same kind of effect.....but would be totally hidden.

yea when i get home ill take some pixs and post them
the ones under the spoiler are 12"
I've got some 24" ones at home I'll take pics of also (thinking of hooking those up elsewhere) that i haven't decided where to put them yet
not to bright during the day but they look great at night(because they are under the spoiler not direct{i wanted them to be hidden}
)
you have to take the spoiler off to get to them

i taped where the spoiler was then removed and used the tape as a guide for light placement there is a retaining clip on the bottom of the spoiler i shaved that off and ran my wires through that hole (make sure its sealed when done)

Your car is looking good man! You should PM a mod and ask them to move your thread for you into the member's journals section. You'll get a lot more traffic there.

I was just responding to your question. I don't see how that's negative posting. You sholdn't need to bump your thread multiple times in a day is all. I won't answer anymore of your questions I guess. Happy?

I've been putting off doing the diy on the lights but i guess im gonna have to do it here soon (a lot of people want to know how i did it)

no drilling there is a retaining clip under the spoiler and i just cut that clip off and used that hole (4 bolts and they still think they needed a retaining clip)

under the plastic tail light covers there are the wires for the lights i spliced mine in there
i took a sodering gun and melted the wire coating (i didnt want to cut the wires) I slid a wire in and sodered them together then taped the crap out of it(make sure you run your wire so you can hide it all be fore you connect anything). I'm not sure of the colors at the moment but if you can wait until this weekend i will do the diy on it

the ones i used were the
SMD 5050 Flexible LED Strip lights with 300 LEDs
