It's a waste if you spend it on Fall Out Boy too!

What are the dimensions of the LED kit, and how much? And where did ya get them.. I'd wonder if it's the same guys who sell the LED kits for my truck.

Musclerodz yes! He's a vendor over at 67-72chevytrucks.com. From what I hear it's a quality piece.

too bad about the accident. to try to prevent your trunk rusting out, try drilling a hole in the spot where the most water collects(providing you can), or you could cover it up with a tarp.

Sounds like a fun job. Do you guys use ladders to get up the towers or what?

By the way, SPR, do you have AIM/MSN?

Edit: 69th reply! Woop!

Some free shop help will be cool, should keep your costs down and free up a bit of cash for the STI....

pretty cool but your flasher isnt messed up.
your cars signal relay can't be triggered by the low draw of LED lamps so your car is telling itself that the lmaps are burnt out.

there's three ways you can fix this.
1. buy an LED flasher unit.
2. buy an LED load resistor
3. wire an inline 1157 bulb and paint it black..............then hide the **** out of it..

if you're a broke genius like me, you go for option 3.
if you have money, go with one of the first two,prefferably #1.

looks like a good project though.
now lets see some bodywork
