what about the clear plastic covering the orange plastic
the JDM tail has a seem there, so im guessing that it can pop out, but iunno exactly how
boiling in water might not be fun

i used Dremal tool, if you dont have it use simple sharp knife to cut theplastic, it wount be easy but after some time and efort you will open it biggrin.gif

drhossa
Did you do it like Sthen?
I'm afraid that you'll see cut from outside, because there's silver color inside. So doesn't it īget black?

i cutted them just like the Sthen did, and NO you wount be able to see any cut marks from the inside smile.gif

drhossa
Ok thanks, i'll try it.
Sthen
.....sorry for the delay...
Doggy has shown correctly the way to modify che blinker.....

If you need i can send pics to you
dahoman9
how did you make it have four stop lights? what wiring did you have to do?
Consynx
i want correct way...tell me smile.gif
NEVERSTOP
LOL I have been thinking about trying this with my extra JDM tail light for a while now but havent gotten around to it.. the yellow is allready busted loose from shipping.

Im gonna try the boiling technique on it tonight and I'll let you guys know how that goes wink.gif
Sthen
you have to connect the white/green wire(stop light) to the black/red wire(rear for) using a diod, do you also put a diod between relais and rear fog light

I would say dont do that. My buddies del -sol is the same design for his front lights, he tried that didnt work, then he got some wierd foggy look on it, we tried the oven, everything.. I havnt thought of it the way that they did it, but i think it would be the safist.

By far one of the easiest mods for the celi! acutally felt a little unsatified with this mod... didn't even BLEED! haha

Naw its really cool and ALOT brighter!
Consynx
you didn't boil tongue.gif

you bum, now we'll never know...NEVER!!!
dahoman9
hehe, Neverstop, I like your mirror GIF. hehe, representing that you're a celica PIMP.

hey, Sthen, thanks to you, I'm met my goal and got rid of all the ugly orange lights on my car. I put the silver/red lights on my blinker though. I guess I'm in the clear/silver "club" as well now tongue.gif I did the cutting. but it was hard cause I guess I didn't cut the whole big enough. BUt it's all good, I pried it out with a screwdriver. Since the orange piece was made of plastic it's bendable. it's much like the front turning signals. WHy was the front turning signals in American like that but the rear, we had to buy these JDM ones?

It's awesome. I wanna work on the four stop lights. That looks tight. Pictures later as soon as it stops raining and I can wash my car.
Sthen
We have removed the orange plastic from the front signal in the SIMOSBRAZ's car.....
the same way than the rear cluster...
cut
remove
and close
dahoman9
yeah, I know. I did it long ago and put some xenon lights in it. I was just saying...that in the U.S. version of our car, they made the front signals like that, but the tails aren't and the JDM are. But oh well, I love my car much more now. No more orange at all. biggrin.gif
Shodog1054
That looks awesome! I'd like to do it to my car. How much are a pair of JDM tail lights?
LatinKraze
$200-250
dahoman9
got mine from ebay for 248 shipped from hong kong
