here's a quick video. the quality and lighting sucks bc im just using my iphone but you get the idea. take note that my set up with the 'brake effect' which is unlike most OEM LCI set ups or most bruce cable adapters (i think it was available after version 6.1 right?). its hard to see in the video but better in person. the OEM one is awash with light....the blackout out version is very defined and clean at night due to less light refraction. obviously the biggest benefit is during the day though when you can tell that the lights are blacked out though lol



and for shits & giggles i tossed in a link to my lighted door handle mod as well (also a first ever)...

hey fellas, here's one more pic showing you how these look during the day. again, during the day is when this mod is most noticeable of course. this picture was taken in broad daylight with the lights off....the treatment really makes the bars pop like crazy in addition to them being darker/blacked out.

(yes i know there's a crack in the taillight, this was an extra tester LCI light i bought off ebay specifically to create this mod lol)

i have recieved a few PMs on getting this done for other users, im checking into sourcing some materials so i can do a few sets, once i do that i will be in a better position to discus pricing.

we are also considering selling LCI taillights totally modded and pre-wired to achieve the brake effect for pre-LCI cars w/ our own custom wiring solution so they will be plug & play w/o special cables....more to come
