I am using an orange bulb and red LED type bulb and look awsome, When I do get rid of them I will include both bulbs so it is a direct swap over.

I do like the clear indicator and red lense, may concider doing that with the next set, but I doubt it.

i think removing both looks ok on a red car but i dont think it will suit a gold car.. but now im thinking about getting a fairmont ghia garnish and remove the orange lens to match it all up...

hey ttbmx have u painted your front yet mate? mines in getting done this week :) so u may be the only ED xr fronted car thats mulit coloured :)


Nah mate its still white, ive lost all motivation of getting the car re-sprayed before the end of school, as the car has been keyed a couple of times since the last cruise, and the dent got pushed back in at the rear of the car. Someones been taking the wiper blade off and putting it under the car in the hope that i put the wipers on and scratch the buggary out of the windscreen.
So its all getting done after my HSC in november and hopefully will be back bigger and better with a few goodies once it is out of action for a few weeks.

P.s. i want to do this mod now :D

I actually cut the back off in the black section, so as to not damage the lense. But from what I have read there are different methods of seperating the lense, read up a little before tackling it, or buy a cheap damaged one from a wreckers to practie on
