Didnít like any of the mounts from other places and the 3M tape on the mount included wouldnít hold.

So I modeled and 3D printed my own! Let me know your thoughts. This is V1 Iíll be making improvements

while I can respect the work involved to 3d print that piece, I'd say it was more of a waste of materials as that does not look stable at all.

its very large/bulky, and it looks like it could scratch your car (without rubber on the gripping feet). For a prototype, its okay.

kudos to actually making something like that and stepping outside of the box

EVERY bulb in the car is now a Philips LED with the exception of the Nokya Type-2 yellow LED fogs. The TapTurn signal relay w/ strobe function is a must with LED turn signals. I also used the G2 paint kit on the calipers.

what. the. heck. is. this.

Yea I have to admit itís definitely not as stable as I wanted it to be. I made some changes to the design to see if it helps. All sharp edges are sanded down to minimize and scratching but definitely could use some rubber.
I got to use the printer and material for free so I thought what the heck might as well!

I took a stab at clearing out the pink on the STi fender badges. I put electroluminescent pink strip on the backside. First one didn't go as smooth as i'd hope. If anyone has a 3D printer and wants to collab with HMU. I then ran red/amber switchback led strips with a white tube that diffuses the light pretty well.

Since my fog lights arenít working and I havenít been able to found out why, I want to remove one of them and custom route my intake to the hole where the fog light would shine out of. Just need the couplers and piping and I think I can make it happen

There are off the shelf kits for that. I had one from Perrin until I wanted to not worry about water intrusion any longer.
