Much to my surprise, when I FINALLY got home from work tonight (11PM) I found the second taillight on my doorstep! Sweet! I was honestly not expecting to get to see it till next week....unfortunately after the San Diego show this weekend.
So, since I am WIDE awake at midnight tonight
, I went ahead and installed them.
I used some 3M gloss-black pinstriping tape to cover up the chrome strip (took all of 5 minutes to install, and matches the BBB of the car pretty well!). Also had to "hog out" the hole on the center light for the dual filament light I use (blink blinks). AND, since my old lights had POS sockets that are EPOXYED into the buckets for those center lights (long story!), I had to install new sockets for the center lights (and solder it all into the blink blinks).
All of the above took about 1 hour.
The lights came out SWEET! The red and black really goes well with the rest of the "theme" of my car (BBB, with red accents). And the 91-92 buckets definitely work GREAT with the LEDs and blink-blinks. The lights are more "distinct" from one another than on the 93-96 buckets (where they sorta run together). And finally, those Eurolite LEDs definitely look better than the APC ones I had before!
All in all, two thumbs up on this mod!
Only thing I might try (and sorta hesitant to do it, but....) is a LITTLE bit of Nightshades on the lenses. But definitely afraid of going TOO far on that one and making the taillights too hard to see!
