I use almost exclusively Adams Polishes products. Car never looked so good! Having black its extremely hard to keep looking perfect. Adams does the trick. No scratching car washes, and synthetic + hard wax for superior protection. Ditch that armor all junk!

Installed my HIDs and LEDs, no more halogen on my entire car!
Also fixed a trunk alignment issue so my OCD can rest.

Did you use a kit, or piece one yourself?

Yeah! Make a thread with pics and a list. The more information on here the better! I still want to put HIDs at least in my back up light. I just haven't decided.

Done!
How to: Complete HID/LED Swap Thread

I'd say don't do an HID reverse light since it takes a bit for it to warm up it kinda doesn't help. The led is instantly on and bright as hell.

I was under the impression that the LEDs were not as bright as bulbs in the size for the back-up light. Not true?

Thanks for the tutorial and the link!

I ordered foam and glue for the JPM saggy seat mod, and heated seats to go on while I'm doing. Also ordered some black charge tubes from DDMworks. Also ordered 2 12" subs for my other car ). I am going to gut my cat while deciding what todo on my exhaust.

It depends on the bulb honestly. Most 3157s are not as bright because they're a lot of low poered LEDs facing all directions. The ones i got for the tails/turns were half as many higher powered ones, so they shone brighter. The one I linked to for the reverse light is one VERY powerful LED so it's really bright, looks great.
No problem, glad to help out!

Added some racing stripes today. Took a while to get everything done today as I polished the hood before I started. The stripe is more for function that looks. The fiberglass hood has some significant crows feet and an accident too a chunck out of the leading edge. So as opposed to painting, I just make the repairs and covered them up with vinyl. Approx $100 as opposed to $900. I also wrapped the new ground effects and mocked it up. Here is the progress:

Tip: remove IC tube place hose on the tube 1st.
Then reinstall as one unit. Do Not clamp
till all hoses are in place.
