      This is...strange.... and amazing.... I think I've discovered my cars long lost twin.

      You have the exact same outlook as me, the whole "I don't give a sh*t about what's 'proper', I'm gonna do what I want!" Awesome! I love seeing other rats, but with this one I feel like I'm staring at my own car, only different colours.

      So you can put leds inside the glass to make it look like a halo? I want to tun this upside down. Do you know where to get the leds?

      Usually you buy the lights with the LED rings already in them. ECS carries these FKs with the Halos already fitted: http://www.ecstuning.com/Volkswagen-...lights/ES9477/

      No, Pepe wants Halos. Sorry for jacking your thread.

      Can you post a picture of the hole in the housing? Depending on the style, you may be able to just pick up a cheap replacement pigtail at the parts store.

      He used wire and just mounted them with it. Sort of back yard mechanic style but looks bitchen!

      Seriously? So those are the original sidemarker lenses... interesting....

      I normally try not to copy other peoples ideas but as one of my great art teachers always said, "Everything has been done before, you've gotta steal it and make it your own!"

      Perhaps I'll put my own twist on this.

      Oh and I am very sure you have to remove the AC to accomplish this. Clearance wont be great enough if the AC remains installed.

      You're sh*tting me... You're a tat artist???

      Well that explains why we both do the same sh*t to our cars! I was a tattoo apprentice before the guy I worked for moved 5 hours away... Now I'm just trying to find a shop that'll take me in!

      When is this Detroit show??

      not sure if I'm answering your need (that is, if you haven't wired in the city lights already), but on my '89 (and perhaps all cabriolets?), there is a pos wire that is unused right next to the pos for the front indicators in that white harness. I lengthened this pos wire (grey IIRC), and ran the ground in parallel with the indicator ground.

      my city's come on when i turn the light toggle to 'running lights, and do not blink with the indicators.
