Looks awesome. Question on dipping the chrome trim. Did you tape all the way up to the chrome trim, or leave some of the silver showing? Also, did you dip the pillars or leave them alone since they are already black?

I've been absolutely covered up with work for the past couple weeks... But this is what I've done so far.

Led on all interior lamps and license plate.

Installed black headlights, hids, led 194 Amber side marker, led switch back in turn signals.

Had a defective headlight issue (low bean bulb cover came loose)... Had to switch back to stock for the week until replacement strives :banghead:

Hopefully I'll have everything done in a week or so.

I'm thinking about lowering fir next project... Have you looked into lowering kits?

Looks real good! Those are some bright interior LEDS you have.
Thanks impalavision :beer:

Which black housings did you end up getting? The ones with the clear side markers? Yeah I been wanting to lower after I get new wheels. I think I'm going to go with the SSC springs. How about you?

What is the benefit of LEDs on the interior lights? Just that they are brighter?
Yup just brighter and IMO better looking than halogen bulbs. Also they last longer, produce less heat, and doesn't use as much power compared to halogens :eek:k3:

For me, I like the nice white look when they come on at night, and are a little brighter. The trunk LED definitely lights up the trunk better.

Exactly :beer: you can't tell in the pictures but mine are "cool white" has a little hint of blue in them. I didn't replace the trunk light yet, that's the only bulb I haven't changed out yet. I just found a site that has a LED strip that plugs into the 194 bulb socket. Completely plug and play so no wiring needed. If I like it I'm going to do the same with the foot wells in the car.

This what I just installed. Completely plug and play into existing 194 socket.

Thanks for the link man, how did it turn out for you?
I was looking at this one: R-Tech "HMS" 12 SMD Forward Face LED Strip - T10 Power Connector - HMS (HIDGuy Mod-Shop)
The one you got is cheaper and has 6 more SMDs.
I thought it turned out good. Mine has a shorter power connector and it connects in the middle of the strip as opposed to the end like your link showed. It has 3m tape on it. I just stuck it right beside the original trunk fixture. Here is closer pic.
