Mini update. My bar came in, purchased from Matt Meza (matts13vert) of Street Faction. Was 170 shipped. Installed with stock bumper support hardware and my BN bumper fit on perfectly.
enjoy the pics!

Any more pics or info on that 3rd brake light install? Is the LED strip on the outside or inside of the rear window? I REALLY want to add on to my hatch since it's so low and idiots in SUVs can't see my OEM 3rd brake light very well. -Thanks!

My friend Mike Yee installed it. LED strip is on the outside of the glass secured with adhesive backing and he drilled a small hole in the window trimming to run the wires. LED are powered by tapping into the tail light wires.

Yesterday I decided to finally install my clear lens covers and it turned out great. All I did was bake them for about 10 minutes at 220 and peeled the stock lens right off. Turned out beautiful.

Thanks. I can take a couple pics for you but I didn't do anything special to fit them. I've got a greddy core so it sits perfectly. Maybe you need to adjust the piping to get your core lined up better. I'll take some pics when I get back from LA.

Ok thanks

My cores not the issue my lights sit on it fine

What it is, is I have the dmax fenders and the mounts on the side didn't hold well so I fab'd my side mounts and the inner braces I still need to come up with something bc my core is in the way of there the oem mounts would go.

So I ordered my Defi gauges today, $630 shipped from Rallysport direct. If you know a buddy who can get them for $615 shipped please don't tell me. I hate when friends tell me they can get me a deal when I already bought someting.

Anyways, here's which ones I ordered. Defi Racer 52mm Boost pressure, oil pressure, and water temp. Really looking forward to installing these gauges. I have a feeling like I will sit in my car and turn my ignition on and off many times lol.

Two black strips of adhesive waterproof led red (front + rear)
Drilled hole in corner of window trim
Ran wires from brake light harness to both lights
Covered up holes with black rtv

It's pretty simple, as for the exact led strips I don't know which ones they are.
Hopefully that helped.

My gauges came in, just gotta figure out when I will be coming home again to work on my car. Now that I have a little weight off my shoulders I can spend all my time with my car...

Oh yeah, picture...

326 power rep wing, ordered it from Touge Factory which probably wasn't the most cost efficient choice but I had just returned from a deployment so I didn't care.

Was $406 shipped I think.
