I have a 2000 prelude. As far as i know the OEM directionals are in the bumper of the car, not in the headlight fixture. I have a DuraFlex R34 model front bumper and no directionals. I need directionals installed to pass NYS inspection. I dont want to put on some tackey sticker lights or attatch some tackey light fixture to the grille-mesh. Does anyone know of any lights that would fit into the R34 bumper? or if the oem lights would fit plush in the R34 bumper? if not than any good ideas on what kind of light fixture i should get to fasten to the grille-mesh? if theres no lights that would fit in the bumper i have than my only option really would be to fasten something to the grille. Any ideas appreciated, thanks crew

this is my car, and the R34 bumper, and ideas for what i can do about the directionals??

Re: After market directional replacement ideas

alot of people will install them in either upper or lower vents right below the headlights, i'll see if i can find some pics. and btw yours is one of the few 5th gens that i actually like with a body kit. nice work.

Re: After market directional replacement ideas

There's a local car aorund here where they used the OEM signal lense, they cut a slim hole in the fibreglass at the bottom, just under the bottom vent. Hole was about 3x.5 inches.

Re: After market directional replacement ideas

The car came to be in Michigan then was moved to NY. NYS inspection requires "amber" blinking lights in the front end. I was looking at led strips but couldnt find any amber leds. Thinking about going for after market moto directionals either in front or behind the mesh. Still dont know, i dont want to rush it and put something on that throws off the visual ya know
