So I got bored two days ago and then it happened. Even MORE LEDs lol!
Night pics owned my phone cam, but you get the idea:



Glowing emblem:

Glowing rear lower reflector:


One day I'm going to drive with everything on at the same time and see if a plane lands on me ^_^

Haha... Not gonna lie, I kinda regret the middle strip, wanted to see what it looked like lol. Usually how my boredom projects go. I don't even turn my others on anymore. They really do look brighter than they are BUT the reflectors worked out great though!
Poor car is just a guinea pig sometimes!

And actually am worried about getting rear ended, but not thaat much. I just have too many LEDs laying around... really.

Zulu is mean. :D

Haha... I want to do.. Whatever I feel like XD. I don't run off others standards (except for imp parts -> works best) And when I'm bored I tend to rewire EVERYTHING bc it's free! Just trying out things here and there. If I had real money I'd do real parts. Tbh, the lights are a lot more subtle than they appeared. They just owned my phone cam at night.
*I have them wired to tail lights coming on. I was planning to put a switch in, but I didnt have time/the switch. Ran the wire up thru the bumper to the driver tail - just tapped in. Nothing crazy.
OH and I got the idea from another Kelowna TSX when we talked about doing his!

Are the reflectors LED too? I'm thinking of turning the reflectors into brake lights. What do you guys think?

You can turn them into brakes, I believe you tap the white wire instead of the red one? Haven't tried tho.
I really do like the emblem tho. Everyone asks where I got it. Some place sells them for a ridiculous amount, so I made it for a few dollars vs hundreds(?). In fact a one group rolled up in a stealthed out g6 and all four got out. I thought my life was over and they started freaking out how 'killin, ill, dirty[:(] etc words I don't understand" - then I knew it was too much. Although oddly enough they went nuts most about my Acura center caps LOL.

Let me know if you give it a try. I'll send some pointers.

I didn't use, but easiest is to buy top shine LED strips and just stick them under the reflector!

There's a company that does the emblems lighted up, I think they are called Amp'd Emblems.

Thanks! That's what I was planning to do. If I decide to do it, I'll let you know and maybe we can do a DIY for it.

With all due respect as I love DIY work but you should have stopped at bumper reflectors only...

I had my LED bumper reflector set up for a long time now and I get lots of compliement too. However, I think it is time for me to sell mine as they are not so unique anymore...ha ha ha
