      I was totally going to do this, but didn't want to spend $50 on bulbs. What did you go with, where did you get them, and how much? I had a hard time finding them that were yellow tinted, a lot are just coated and shine yellow.

      I met up with a fellow R from here on the forums last friday. He said he had these... linked me these http://www.amazon.com/Hella-H7107070...ecc_rvi_cart_1

      but now the website says they don't fit the R?

      Sorry for the late night / early morning post. Didn't get home till just now.

      Well pulled the baby into the garage.



      Put in the ECS hatch pop kit.



      Installed my new Hella tails.



      And Wa-La



      Still looking for any help as to how to get the inner set of LEDs to become the turn signal.
      If anyone knows how this could be done, pleaseeee let me know. I would hope there would be no wiring involved but if I have to I will. Thanks!

      Lol, noticed that amazon.com says "Item Weight: 5 Pounds" for those bulbs. Wow must have a bit of dark matter in them.

      What type of epoxy are you using. Did you mix it properly first?

      It is Gorilla Epoxy, 5 minute set time. Yes; mixed correctly it failed the first time I did it as well, but I thought it was due to humidity. I am guessing the plate holder is polyurethane, and just too smooth and flexible for the Epoxy to hold onto...

      I gotta do a little research and see if I can find something better.

      Vag'd the hatch, so now it pops open.

      Tomorrow will try the "ghetto" method to get my tails turn signal LEDs to work.

      Wow.. don't know where you were looking, but that's a rip off.

      Got my Nokya H7s for $15 shipped.

      Nokya is your best bet anyways.
