    This is an odd “WTB†request. I’m looking for anyone in Northern California (South Bay?) who would be interested/willing to perform the following modifications on my car. Of course you’d be paid for your time:

    Taillight film tint
    LED license plate retrofit
    LED interior retrofit

    I haven’t committed to these modifications yet, but since these are mods I don’t feel confident doing myself, I’m interested to see who’d be willing to do it/what kind of fees you’d charge. Of course I would purchase the materials myself (with your opinions taken into great consideration) and we’d meet at some convenient location for you.

    I know there are talented people reading this. Thanks!

    too bad you are on the other coast....
    I used to work at an auto accessory shop part time when i was in college getting my engineering degree.
    I can help anyone install the following:
    -tint on lights/windows
    -anything electrical
    -FOGLIGHTS, HID's, Stereo systems, etc.
    -Suspension systems
    -any bolt on accessories (exhaust, strut bars, etc)
    -changing any kind of fluids (oil, brake, steering, transmission, radiator)

    I have a garage and you can watch me work on your car and learn at the same time over a few beers!

    Bummer. Thx anyway.

    Can somebody help me here? If you know what you're doing, I'm willing to pay you generously for your time.

    Very much interested in the license plate LED mod.

    I'm in Berkeley and have replaced all the bulbs in my car inside and out with LED's, except for the reverse lights. It's not hard if you get decent parts.

    I'd be willing to assist, but you'd likely have to drive up here, (I rarely come that way) and we'd have to get the parts ordered before that happens.

    I can't really help with the tinting though, and in fact I'd love to have my back windows done but don't trust myself.

    Do you have a list of what LED's and where you put them?
    Thanks

    I'm local as well and while I don't have a ton of time, may be able to help or advise.

    Guys the LED bulb swaps are pretty easy. No different than changing a lightbulb. Vinyl overlay on the tails just takes some patience to do and no more than 30 mins per light. Good luck though, I would help you guys out but I'm in Socal

    I did the LED interior a while ago.

    I also just ended up doing the LED license plate mod myself. Let's just say, it was fun. ;)
