hehe... following my footsteps eh?

The bodyman had to take my car to his home to do it, because doing it under the shop will cost extra $$$ as the labour per hour is pretty costly, I think he charged me below $150, but I am not 100% sure as I had a major accident, and I just did that along with fixing my car

Plug wise, I just bought a pair of the cheapest aftermarket sidemarkers I could find, then just took out that plug, and bought bright white bulbs, as most aftermarket sidemarkets are clear and comes with an amber bulb

hope this helps, and good luck, and don't worry too much when that bodyman is slowly drilling into your fenders, that sound the drill is making is nothing more than your car screaming in terror... mmmhahaha...

Have fun!

Sunny

install would cost between $100 to $150?

i have to ask when u want to do it....i remember Sunny got that done for about $100 to $120 range....and say if that accident the body man really gave him a deal....i don't see it will be more than $150...

takes about 3 to 4 hours included doing the wiring?

wiring only includes connect either to turn signal or to marker light....but not both....both will cost more...

and i should be able to get u the plugs w/o u buying an extra set...at least it will cost u less than buying extra set...

There's no such thing as a "perfect" hole for these things... unless it's a factory cut... the bodyman drew an approx. size of the sidemarker onto a sheet of paper, but made it a tad smaller... he then put it onto the fender by eye-balling it to around the same area as the pictures I showed him of stock JDM cars, then he slowly made the hole bigger and bigger until it snuggly fits, the wiring was fast, it's just tapped into the front blinkers as it doesn't use much current, so it all works out
