Arrow Clear Side Markers Installed

I finally got my clear legacy side markers installed today. The markers fit very nicely, but are a tiny bit looser than the stock trim pieces. I will be modifying the plastic clip with a thin metal one to make a tighter fit. They look excelent on the car, as the fill in the trim location perfectly. I bought the sockets from SubaruParts.com. The sockets fit perfectly and create a nice, water-tight seal.

I am very happy with the overall quality and I think they really add to the look of my car. I am using the PIAA Ion Yellow wedge bulbs right now, in an effort to avoid a ticket for having super white bulbs on the sides of my car (even though super whites would look tight!). I do have one pair of New SuperWhite wedge bulbs if anyone is interested in buying them for just $10 Shipped.
I will post pics tonight or tomorrow.

I was very lucky that the black plastic on the markers matches my black car very closely and I could probably get away without painting them. But, I will have them painted very soon, with my morettes and soon-to-be custom front grill .

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks again Accurit Performance for the Great service and even better products!

So you got your sockets? I haven't got mine yet. Did they email you and give you a tracking number or did they just show up?

HIHO:

They did not initially email me a sent confirmation and tracking number like they said they would, so I emailed them. They then sent me the tracking number link to Airborne Express' Web site. The sockets arrived 4 days after I recieved the tracking email. Mine may have arived sooner because SubaruParts.com is also in Washington, where I live. The sockets are a perfect match, so they will be worth the wait. The PIAA Yellow Ion bulbs look great turned on through the clear reflector. I hope you get your sockets soon.
Thanks again for the socket part# and order info !

Also, How is your custom grill coming along? I just found a body shop that will customize and paint my grill for $100 out the door, so I will probably have it done next week. I am going to have them cut out the center of the grill, fiberglass the inside lip to create depth, mount heavy mesh to the fiberglass and have the entire grill painted black. They are also going to paint my Morettes and side markers for just $30 more!! Great deal IMO.

can't wait to see your stuff painted, sounds cool! and I wanna see if it flows better/worse that way.

Did you put "1" or "2" in the quantity box? Are these sold as a set or singles?

Arrow Installed Side Marker Pics

Here are some pics of the Markers intalled on my ride.

-- subarugt:

Yes, the markers are all wired in. I did not do the installation myself, I had my installer do. There is no need to find/buy a wiring harnes for these markers. All you need to (what my installer did) is to use one power and one ground wire and attatch small female adapters to the wire ends and plug them into the socket's male wire posts.
The whole install only took about 1/2 hour and the wring could not have been more simple. The wire from the socket was simply spliced into the corner lights' wires so the marker stays on with the parking lights and flashes with the blinkers. Let me know if you have any more questions.

I got them from Accurit Performance. They cost $45 for the Side Markers only. You will need to buy 2 sockets. The sockets Part # and link are posted above. I would deffinately email or PM Accurit, as he may have one more left, or be able to order more. I think they are well worth the money.

If you do a search for Accurit Performance in the Legacy Forum, you will find the original post with more product info and contact information.

I have a guy named Russell do all most of my non-stereo installs. He works out of Racing Concepts in Lynnwood. They are located on Hwy 99 at the corner of 99 and 164th. He has been doing it for quite a while and charges reasonable prices. You can give him a call at the shop and he will give you a quote over the phone. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I just found a new body shop owner in Lynnwood that specializes in custom body work and painting. He is going to make me a custom grill and paint my Morettes and side markers all for $130 out the door. His name is Toby and I can get his contact info if anyone wants it. He came highly recomended.

Jacob,

ahhh, I know that place. I used to drive by there when I worked in Lynwood a while back. Isn't there a video store behind it, and a Value village, or some thriftstore across the street?

Cool. I'll keep the name in mind.

Thanks,
Rich

Rich,

Actually Racing Concepts is north of Value Village on 99. It is across the street from 7-11 and Dun Lumber.

Jacob here is a picture of my grille. It turned out OK but was a big PITA! It is well worth a $100 to get someone else to do it.

HIHO, your grill looks great! Mine will likely look similar minus the inner-most plastic ledge and the center piece (very similar to the pics above). I am going to have the fabricator completely cut out the center of the grill up to the outer-most trim ring. They will then have to fiberglass a new inner ledge to give the grill enough depth to mount the heavy gauge mesh on the inside. I am then having the entire grill painted body-color black. Hopefully it will turn out as well as yours did.

Thanks guys you make me blush.

There wasn't a whole lot of glass. I just placed the glass on the backside of the cuts. Then placed some on the frontside. Build it up to level. I used a little cathair glass to even it out the best I could. Sand smooth. Then a couple of coats of bondo. Sand, sand,sand. Primer. Paint. I mounted the mess behind the grill. I bent it to wrap around the backside then mounted with bondo.

As for the chrome piece I was just going to sand it down and paint over it. I found out if you use a fine grit paper(600) you can make it look like alumminum. Just sand and it takes all the shine off and dulls it to a nice matte finish. I am also thinking about repainting the grille all matte black to match the morettes. But leave the alumminum looking trim.
