What kinda light bulbs are you using for your side markers and license plate?

Their are these bulbs called SMD LED's I got some for my license plate and side markers and they look crisp!
See for yourself...
On the left is the stock bulb and on the right is the SMD LED. You can find them on eBay for just a few bucks. Just search your bulb size and add SMD LED.

That's a nice little touch ip. Thanks for the advice.

And sorry bro but the wings seem to throw off the look to me. I was thinking leaving it slick and dropping the BNK lowering springs 1.7 front and 1.9 rear but I don't know hoe that's going to be effected because I have 20's on low profiles

For mine I just used 3 coats of VHT Nightshades and they came out really well. And it's a lot cheaper than buying completely new lenses.

Good idea. Does that give you the good glassy/gloss finish or the cheap spray paint look?

It has somewhat of a gloss to it but if you Want it to shine you can get a clear coat for it.

Ok thanks! By the way I saw your coated matte black rims. Great choice for a red mustang. I've got matte as well. Just fyi if you go get like a $7 caliper paint can and just take off your wheels and slide a garbage bag over your brake discs and paint your calipers red it will really bring out the black in your rims and really just make it glow

Alright. I already have solid red interior glow that I did myself. I did under the back seats, both front foot wells, and inside my air vents.

The vents were the hardest to do.

Yeah I did my interior as well. Good job on the vents. I know how hard it is to get to in there. I had to disassemble my whole dash when I put in my new stereo and subs.

I'm looking at doing a new stereo and subs next. I'm also putting red LEDs at the top of my grill to make the pony glow.

That's a good idea. I have the black billet grille. And if your going to do the subs yourself make sure you take a whole day to do it. It takes forever because you have to pretty much take apart your whole interior to get to the radio, but is really worth it for the extra sound quality and bump. I have 2 12" kickers and a 1100 watt boss amp.

I disassembled my whole dash and put it back together the other day and it took me an hour and a half. But I'm going with 2 kicker comp 15" and a jackhammer 1000 watt amp and 2 custom ported boxes.

That's some good stuff. Just male sure with that much thump you get some type of cushion so you don't rattle and it will sound clean

Yah. I've been thinking about that. Itll be complicated but I love a good challenge. When you ran your power cord from your battery to your amp did you drill through the fire wall or how did you get it inside the car?

Great question. I found that since the battery is on the right side when your inside. You don't have to drill at all. You can pull it in between the little space on the right side driver right at the top of the door hinge is a tiny space where if you angle the door right it will pull through and you can drag it through the panel right up against your door on the side where your feet go. It's hard to explain I hope this helps

That's great! Just wondering but does it light up well during the day? I installed something like that in my friends f150 and you couldn't really see it. If you can, what and how did you do it?

Well it's just LEDs so they won't show up much during the day but that's going to happen with any type of exterior lighting during the day.

Yes you can still see them clearly. I'm not sure from how far away but you can still see them.

Well I might do that as well if ya don't mind. Plus I bought some nightshade and sealant yesterday and blacked out the center brake light. Im doing the back side running lights and parking lights today. As well as using plasti dip on my fuel door and handles since its a textured matte black finish like my rooms and other accessories

I don't mind at all. And I had my door locks and subwoofer covers on my doors painted black. I used the material that jeeps use on their bumpers that feels like smooth plastic.
