I've removed the speedo so that it's just connected by the speedo wire but can't work out how to pull the bulbs out of...

    Bright Gauges Step by Step

    So I read up on Cop Runner?s light mod and decided it was a great idea. The install was easy, but somewhat more complicated than I anticipated, so I thought I?d add a step-by-step with pics just in case anyone has had this on the backburner. It takes less than half an hour and is totally worth...

    Signal light bulbs

    Made an interesting find yesterday...the amber signal light bulbs from an '06 will not work in a '99...the locking posts on the amber bulbs are not opposite each other, as they are with the clear bulbs, therefore the sockets for the amber and clear are configured differently also. So, if...

    Mini Turnsignals and LED Bulbs..

    Here's another mod I did that kind of evolved on me. I bought the clear lens Mini-turnsignals off Ebay (the Lollipops had to go!) and when I saw that the entire set of 4 was wired for 1157 bulbs I thought great, I'll set the back ones up as running lights, just like the front. Of course...
