Icon6 Need help with front lights.

I wanted to know the model LED's that fit into the sidemarker of an 2000 base model. I need sites. Don't know any good ones besides superbriteleds.com and I haven't had good luck with them.
Also, I need to find clear front blinkers, If not, I want to take the amber out the stock ones on the bumper, don't know if there is a DIY thread on it or not, but I'd rather just buy new ones.
Any links, references, offers are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Another thing, I've seen people tint headlights, tails, side markers, but not the blinkers, if anyone has a picture, I'd like to see if it came out looking good.

Re: Need help with front lights.

You can tint your turn signals with something called "vt nightshade" if i'm not mistaken. they also sell them already blacked out for $25 on ebay

for your LED concerns, check out this thread;

Yeah, I've ben pming him for the past 3 days, wants me to leave my paypal payment as a gift, wouldn't tell me anything about housing, side, or anything, so I went on superbriteleds.com and needed to know what kind and all that. If he comes through with the information tomorrow I'll go with him, but it'd still like to know what size they are for future reference. Also, if you have a link for those turn signals, I'd kindly take up on that offer. ;)

Re: Need help with front lights.

Heres a picture of my tint on my tail lights. I went to my local tint guy and I asked him to tint just the clear part of my tails. He used a special tail light tint, its much ticker then regular window tint. Also I didnt want to do the tint thats paint because if i want to remove it one day I wouldn t be able, but with this i could.

Re: Need help with front lights.

heres a tip, i bought all the leds for the gauge conversion as well as interior dome, trunk, front and tail lights. got them as was all excited to install. pulled off the front turns and they werent what they were supposed to be. once again i was screwed by a previous owner. now i need to order them again. here is the list of supposed factory lights

Low Beam Headlamp Light Bulb Size: H1-55W
High Beam Headlight Bulb Size: H1-55W
Parking Light Bulb Size: 168
Front Turn Signal Light Bulb Size: 7440
Rear Turn Signal Light Bulb Size: 7440
Tail Light Bulb Size: 168 or 7443
Stop Light Bulb Size: 7443

Seriously get your LEDs from afesposi
http://www.preludezone.com/5th-gen-9...also-sale.html
He can have stuff custom made (to my knowledge) and is better than dealing with any company. He's a great guy.

this is just on the inside - so when you put your amber bulb in there, you'll see that amber clearly when you use the signals. I'm sure other members on here have pictures of what it looks like if you put tint on the front of the signals rather purchasing blacked out ones

Alright thanks, do you need a special socket for the LED to go into that goes into the base or is it just straight plug it in where the old lights where and screw it back in? I'm curious on the subject.

Re: Need help with front lights.

the only thing you need a socket for is the gauge lights and even then i recommend using the factory ones. everything else is push in.
