First CL9 with Side Mirror Puddle Lights.

A project I have been working on for a couple of weeks here and there.

I put the puddle lights in the side mirror, and are turned on just like the dome lights. I would like to think i'm the first owner to have a CL9 with side mirror puddle lights.

I will have a DIY one day soon for you guys. Let me know what you think?






The lights don't flicker, its just the camera

Also, I will have night shots tonight, they are diffidently bright at night!

At night, it's a CRAP TON brighter then the pictures show.. Stupid iPhone.

Good job!
Are you able to hide the wires well between the door and the car?? That's the part where I was lazy and didn't want to do it. @@

On the Passenger side door you can't see any wires.

Driver door you can only see about 1in of wire, but its pretty hard to spot.

Do you have a mod like this?

Good job man. This was something I had in mind but never got around doing it. I wired up the side skirt puddle lights so this would have been a bit easier. Btw, did you use some adhesive to prevent moisture from going into the side mirrors?

Thank you sir!

To be honest, wiring it up to the dome light wasn't bad, it was taking the mirror apart, running the wire threw that, and then the door. That's what took the longest.

I bought some adhesive to seal it up, but once I took the mirror apart I noticed that the mirror isn't sealed. There is actually a hole already drilled in the bottom of the mirror to let the water out. So no, I didn't seal it at all.



Much props to you! Want to see at night too.
Dopeeee mod! Looking forward to the night shots :D

Ya that was a pretty fun part, but the real fun part is taking the mirrors apart! Lol

CAn you give us a link to what led you used for this project?
I ordered the LEDs, resistors, and holders off eBay. I made all LEDs myself.
