The install was very easy, just make sure you don't strip the screws holding in your current headlights. After you pop the old ones out you just plug your new H4's w/ Xenon bulbs in and it "should" work. Unfortunately for me it did not work due to some corrosion issues my high beams wouldn't work. Nothing a new Eautoworks harness wouldn't fix though

Eautoworks Harness- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ef=oss_product

Even after I got my new harness installed I didn't have brights though. The eautoworks harness plugs into the existing headlight harness so your switch will still work on the dash. I had so much corrosion on my existing harness that it wouldn't even send a signal through. I ended up splicing the new to the old using but connectors and shrink wrap tubing. My brights work like a charm and the light output is amazing. I'll try to get you some pics
sweet deal, so you just plug the bulbs into those new casings, plug and play huh? yeah i just got new sylvania silverstars so ill wait a little while, i spent about 25 mins cleaning all the contacts off real nice, should have gotten that new harness

Nope, the overlay and tinting are one piece, if you could make a custom overlay with out the tinting the you'd be set.

Maybe a vinyl shop will be able to do it, using a clear or frosted material for the markings, and then just flat black for the rest.

That's a good question, as much time as I've spent working on my doors I've never stopped to check.

whatcha think?

Shanker, After looking at your lights it seams to me that you have two dull spots where the bulbs arnt glowing. I know it sucks but you might try and rotate the socket 180 Degrees and see what happens. Take a look at mine and then yours. You can see what I'm talking about

okay so my lights are all in good now, i havent taken a pic yet, im pretty sure the door lights are fiberoptics, so unchangeable for me right now atleast.

my question was, for the HVAC, whoever did it and said it was dim, could you post a picture of what it looks like? i'd like to see what it would look like if i did it, so then i can open it up and see what i can do to remedy it. thaaaanks

I had some red lights in the HVAC that I sent back. I re-ordered some white bulbs but they messed up the order and I received the same red ones I started with. I'm going with white in hopes it will make everything look brighter.

Fold some white paper over so its about 3-4 layers thick, cut it to fit and slide it under the clear part. Its a tight fit on the TC, so you might have to put the paper in one layer at time. And as a bonus it will look better during the day time too.

Looks good though.
