  1. Audio & Lighting
    I put blue LEDs in my map lights, but for some reason they're literally burning up. I don't have this issue with the incandescent bulbs, but the LEDs seem to burn up. They're just retrofitted 194 bulbs off eBay. Like literally electric burning smell coming from them. Does wattage matter? I...
  2. Audio & Lighting
    I'm thinking about getting projectors for my 4G, but I don't like the aftermarket ones that are offered. They look cheap. The last time I bought projectors, I paid ~$200 for them, and the projectors kept coming loose from the housing, and the alignment pegs were plastic and didn't want to align...

    I really got to stop posting here.....:squint::bigthumb: Anyway, so I'm thinking about specializing in customizing/retrofitting headlights and tailights and I was wondering what are some good sites or places to get components to do stuff like this.

    Posting up the work I did to my headlights and taillights. I think they turned out great, and seem to be holding up to the elements, although the taillights were just completed. The headlights: Morimoto Mini bixenon, with GTI style shrouds, the shrouds look exactly the same as the foglight...
  7. Good Guys/Bad Guys
    I had the opportunity to RicoSauve retrofit a new pair of projector headlights for me with demon eyes and CCFL's. I have to say the entire experience was great. His customer service was top notch. He answered all my questions and guided me through the process with detailed messages and advice...

    Has anyone tried to retrofit factory TPMS to an '06? My 06 instrument cluster had the TPMS indicator built in to it however tpms was not fitted to the cars until 07+. I've retrofitted TPMS other vehicles in the past like this to different vehicles. Two times it meant replacing the rke module...

    I'm not too savvy with this HID conversion stuff, but I found these on CL and was wondering if they would be useable for an HID conversion. I know there isn't much info here, but I'm just curious if there is a specific kind of ballast or voltage/rating/whatever we need to retrofit. Thanks...
  14. Do It Yourself Guides (Howto)
    Thoughts and things I found after I had taken the picture are usually in * * and in italics. SO, like many other areas of our car, we were blessed with the horrible H13 bulb, and the reflector in the 06-some09 Eclipses is not the best design either. As seen here: (Sylvania halogen H13...

    Sooo, I've been here a long time but don't post much as I rarely make any upgrades to my car. This year is a different story though, I've been hoarding quite a few parts and seeing as I don't have a ride thread yet I've decided to finally make one to post all my updates! :happy: So first off...
