      Installed the LED light in the hatch I really like it. I'm debating about a full interior LED upgrade.

      Alright so I have a question for everyone who follows my slow & boring build. After installing the LED light in the hatch. It has kinda made me want to do an interior LED upgrade. So my question is what would look better blue LED everything (I think it's cool but pretty unusable/ricey), clear over head & blue footwell lights (Kinda like the idea of clear over head since it will go with my trunk light), or just clear everything. I know at the end of the day its my decision, I just wanna get some in put.

      Clear everything.. Blue clashes with the red lighting already in the cluster/buttons/etc., plus it is really bad for night vision/driving.

      Hey Bud,

      I got one of the door pocket umbrellas from Edmundo too (solid dude). How far back does yours slide into the pocket? Can you still fit a drink/bottle too?

      Thanks. Car looks awesome!

      Edmundo is an awesome dude. The umbrella doesn't slide too far back it does stick out and it doesn't let you fit a drink/bottle in but its NBD. It leaves a tiny little gap. I usually put my cell phone there or wallet. The little slit in the back of the door pocket is for OEM Safety Vest in case you didn't know.

      Thanks man I really like what you did with your car.

      Hmm weird I'm on my android and its not working either but on my laptop it shows oh well we all know the basic idea. However thanks to Chris I was able to decide to do clear LED upgrade for over head. Still debating about footwell lights though.

      Just go spend $5 at autozone and get red 194 bulbs for the footwell and slap them in there. Have had mine for two years now with no issues, they light up and dim as they should. No need for LED's here as you'll probably have the setting set pretty low anyways.

      And if you don't like them, you only spent $5.

      Shank, just buy 2 red, and 2 blue or whatever colors you want. They're fairly cheap and really simple to swap.

      Good idea. I'm gonna buy a set of red and blue and decide.

      Thanks again Chris couldn't make this decision without your white balance being slightly off. Gonna buy a set of each and stick with what I like.

      Few updates:
      Bought BSH true seal intake.
      Sold BSH true seal intake.
      Also got my OEM First Aid Kit today. I was on the hunt for this first aid kit since it looks great in the parcel tray only reason I couldn't get it was. It isn't available in america any more. But thanks to Kyle (E CODE) who helped a fellow member out (me). I was able to get it from canada.
      Here's some pics.








      Next I'm gonna order some interior LEDs for overhead lights. I having a job again.
