Default I See Red

Haven't posted any truck pics here yet. I took a few of all the red lighting I have in the truck. Next to come are led side markers on the mirrors, something subtle. I also want to get an 07 valence since some rocks killed my 08 fogs. I like the square fogs much better anyways. Here's the pics. Truck has a 3 inch bl and 31s





Puddle lights








Custom ohc

Runs fogs interior light and soon heated seats

Here's the switches. Nothing special, just toggles. The only ohc I could find was mangled, so I had to improvise. I still want an autodimming mirror.

As far as the how to for the heated seats. I'll def. write one when I do it. It's actually doing it that's gonna be the issue. I have no time.

I should mention that the dash photos look like there's a few 'hot spots' on the speedo and the tach. They don't look like that in person, must be the picture. All I did for the red lighting was take apart the cluster and the hvac, sanded off the green and used transparent red lens tape (the kind to fix taillights) over the numbers. Patience and some time, and it came out looking amazing.

From my expeience lurking other forums I'm just waiting for member jp7 to tune in and tell me how I needed 3 billion LEDs to make my dashboard illuminate the road behind me.

The lights are very subtle, not super bright, driving with them at night is alot better than the LEDs I've seen.

Anymore questions just ask

Nope, used transparent red lens tape after sanding off the green paint on the back of the gauges. Also removed the green filters behind the hvac
