Aftermarket Exterior Lighting

Postby EmanResu77 - December 5th, 2017, 2:47 pm

So I have finally started with modifying my E hybrid with some exterior light. It's not much but its definitely a start. The first thing I changed out was the fog lights. My OEM had a crack in the housing and well pretty much sucked. I ordered LED fog lights from Ebay and installed them. They are unbranded but looking closely at them, I believe they are Spec-D since that's the only aftermarket assemblies out there. Only problem I had was that the connecting wires were a bit loose but with some electrical tape, it did the job just fine.

I know with all the blur it's hard to show, but with these on at night I definitely don't need my high beams as of right now.

The 2nd mod I did as well was change the 3rd brake light to a Lumens Smoked LED. It blends in well with the color of my escape.

My next mods for exterior lighting are to install a brushguard I have coming in at the end of the week and add a pair of either LED driving lights or amber lights as well as a 24" light bar. To continue with smoking out the lights, I'm also looking at finding a smoked project headlight housing (probably a since projector since I've heard the duals aren't as reliable) and to apply a polyurethane layer onto my tailights and fog lights. If anyone has smoked their lights out please let me know!

Very nice :thumb: :thumb:

Where did you buy the 3rd brake? Do you have a link?
Are they plug and pray :) ?
Did you tint the red plastic or bought it as a kit?
Thanks

Thank you. I bought the 3rd brake light from CARiD. It came as a plug and play kit. The assembly is smoked and I kept the OEM in the box should something happen.
