To route the wires for the LEDs I used the grommet that the ballast wires were using. On the passenger side there is already useless wires running through it, but not on the drive side. On the PS I snipped the unused wires and kept three of them to use for the LEDs and on the DS I ran three wires through to match the PS. This what it looks like:

Inside:




Outside:



This way I didn't have to drill and fill any holes! And it looks a lot cleaner.

View from the inside:

After I scuffed one up with sand paper:

After they were both sanded I applied tape to the inside so light would only shine through the sicker and not glow around it:

Once they were painted and dried:

And with some back light:
Are those the stillen covers or black ops?

This is gonna look sweet! Wish I had the time and patience for a project like this. Maybe after the house renovations I will attempt something similar.

Yes those are the side markers that came in the headlamp. Not aftermarket covers.
