    I replaced my Parking lights with LEDs. I didn't realize how yellow my standard headlights are. I guess I'll be ordering some HIDs 6K's to install now. Does it ever end?

    I sure hope it's easier to get a headlamp in than it is the parking lights!

    Speaking of HIDs. Xenonsupply.com has theirs for 129.99. I used coupon code FACEBOOK10 and received an additional 10% off! So it was 116.99. I chose the slow free shipping.

    I see that you have a foglight kit. You can use the tap that comes off the brown under dash wire, the one that is hot when the parking/headlights are turned on, to activate a relay to send power to the LED strip lights. Your strip lights will come on when you turn on your parking lights/headlights.

    If you want, you can wire in a switch in between the tapped brown wire and the relay coil so you can bypass (turn off) the strip lights if you want to be able to run at night without them.

    Tap any fused circuit of appropriate capacity for power.

    Or you could connect them to the inside light power supply so that when you unlock the car they turn on or of course get close with the key fob in your pocket.

    Slippery slope. Once you start modding it's very hard to stop.

    After I replaced the parking lights with LEDs I realized how yellow the headlights looked. So I ordered HIDs. Then I realized the back up lamps don't match the color of my tag lights, so now I finally found some LEDs that should work for backup bulbs and they are on the way.

    I'll also finally have my center caps this week. I was going to paint the background black and leave the Toyota emblem chrome, however, it looks like it's Aluminium so I don't think I'll be able to prime them properly, paint, and then clear coat with much ease.

    May I ask where you purchased the OGS version. I'm partial to that over the stage 10.

    Thanks in advance!

    I got it from Rodney aka HawaiianBuilt. I'm sure he'll hook up the same deal for you if you message him.

    Yeah. I do haha. But it's so bright already. The actual trunk light will be useless. Lol. Also what size does it take. It seems like it uses a smaller bulb

    I installed the ECO badge available on 11-12 ECO cars in Japan. Bought it on eBay, pretty fast shipping too. I know Bino has this on his car also.

    So I finally got some center caps. I originally wanted to paint the backgrounds black but didn't want to tempt the fates. I'm a quilter not a painter. LOL

    Anywho, tomorrow I am going to attempt to install my HID kit.

    Before I cleaned them.

    I apologize in advance for it being filthy.

    :( I'm a bad Prius Father. :(
