Sorry about the pics. It was getting late and a long day. Did not know they were that bad till I posted them.

Cool that you did this. I've been looking to put LEDs in there too. More to get rid of the yellow incandescent light than brightness. Thanks!

LanMan08, I just change out to the other bulbs this afternoon. It will take you about 30 to 45 mins to take the car apart. I take my time, to make sure there is no damage done to any of the body parts. Please see the pics and you will see what all to do. First take the taillight coverings off the car, unplug wiring harness to the rear lights, then take three torques screws out of the fender area behind rear tire. Yes, you can do this without removing the tires. There will be one 7mm screw to remove toward the end of the rear section towards the rear tire. almost at the end. Pull the sides of the rear section away fron the car on both sides. They are in a clipped in area, dont frett you wont break anything. Then pull at each corner where the taillights are and it will pop right off. It is easier to do with two people if you have someone to help you. The whole wiring harness is attacthed to the rear section. Lay it on a soft area not to scratch things up. Then repeat process in reverse after putting in the lights. It is easier than you think. I was scared to death to takle this. But, it is really simple to do, just take your time, as with all projects you do. Please find, yes way better picture on the project, than I had posted. And yes it is worth the trouble to do this, They are super bright!!!!!
