Nope, it is slightly more complicated than that. The bulb is replaced, you have to modify the light housing, and wire in the ballasts that come with the lights.

here is the write up I used:

Pretty amazing actually what I can fit in their... (30 gal compressor, 4 metal carts, Lowe's trips, etc). Good stuff on this build man!

Yep i have been riding BMX for ever. But i just recently got back into it in a bigger way. That is my Sunday Model-C 24 inch, but I also have a Terrible One Barcode 20 inch.

I just got done painting the Sunday yesterday, here is a pic

and here is one of me riding it a few weeks back:


Not much new on the jeep, I am figuring out how to store everything for our 2 week Colorado/Utah wheeling trip in June. I did pick up a sweet Drake shifter knob though
