    Okay, I'm sure this is posted somewhere in this post but I'm not sure. Is it possible to keep the old indicator lights, or do I have to buy new ones? If I have to buy new ones, how much are they and where do they go? If I get new bulbs do I have to splice them into the wires? Thanks in advance.

    The old indidcators flash white. I bought some orange bulbs and used a light dusting of chrome spraypaint. Still flash orange, but look silver. New bulbs are only like $2 and they will plug into the harness like stock(no splicing necessary)

    i finally did this!

    ...love the results. gotta get rid of the orange side markers next. (orange on silver!?)



    one thing I found noteworthy about the silver visions I got... the little metal nubs at the base of the bulb which guide the bulb into place and hold it into it's position were off set quite a bit.

    the stockers are at 12 and 6 (o'clock) and the silver visions I got were more like 12 and 5. shoulda just gotten 2$ ones and spray painted them chrome.

    nothing quick hack saw couldn't fix... suppose I could solder a nub into the right spot but... 1 nub fits on well enough.

    Couple notes, blue is illegal and might get you pulled over, and pep boys bulbs arent worth a damn, pay the extra money and get some higher quality ones

    Where I get my LED's from

    And if you really like the blue but kinda borderline, I used light blue bulbs in my eclipse turns, for 3 years and only had a cop say something to me once.

    Got them from here

    I think the light blue blue would reflect a nice hue onto the chrome too. But if you want to take that chance.

    on superbrightleds.com they have 3 1156 led's, a 12, 19, and 30 led. Will the 30 led one work for the turn signal or do you have to use the smaller ones?

    So the general feeling is that it is better to cut up the amber housing rather than bake the lights and just remove it? Are the Silvervisions worth the 24 bucks a pair that they cost or is it a better idea to just pick up a stock rear set for a few bucks and spray paint them silver? Does anyone have any pictures of what the rear taillights look like with the Silvervisions in?

    Hrmm... not better, just a different solution to the same problem.

    Again, pretty subjective. I would just say just make sure the ones you get have the nubs in the correct location. The ones I got were not and I had to hack off one on each to make them fit (and a careful eye will note they as result a tiny bit crooked).


    Do it up!

    I am pretty sure that the Silvervisions only come with the nubs at 12 and 5 cuz they are made for the rear lights which are 12 and 5 whereas the front clear bulbs are 12 and 6. If anyone knows different please tell me because I am still unsure about doing this mod.
