Re: DarkSouljur's Build Thread

Didn't know there was a difference i thought leds it didn't matter lol

But yeah they both work now. I got a pic of what it looks like in the day, the white is a lot nicer than the yellow:




This was taken in the day, just to show lopes what it looks like lol, i'll take one at night when i can, please don't comment on how dirty my car is lol, i haven't cleaned it in forever, going to do that today xD

Question also: I have a 2003 civic ex, in the front i have the passenger light, the driver light, and then one in the middle. Are they all the same type of bulb or are the ones on the side different? I'm going to get the outter two red and the one in the middle white to match my dash, unless that would look gay? lol

Re: DarkSouljur's Build Thread

Dam, that's dirty
Looks good though

They are all T10 wedges
except for the rear dome, which is a festoon light

You can buy a pair of reds for the sides, and a pair of whites, one for the middle, and one to put in the trunk, theres a T10 light in there too

Re: DarkSouljur's Build Thread

They look nice, but in all honesty... Whats the point? It's not like you drive around with your reverse lights on :P

But nice, none the less

Re: DarkSouljur's Build Thread

Oh wow, it actually doesnt look bad with tinted tails

How do you like the light output of them?
(Btw, people, i realized after i got into photography, that the blueness of the lights is just the white balance being off, they actually should be pretty white)

Next thing on your list:
Shaving your trunk

Re: DarkSouljur's Build Thread

Honestly i haven't noticed the light output, i'm too busy staring at the sexy whiteness of them lol. I'll check when i can, i really got these because white looked nicer, i never really "used" my reverse lights. I was surprised how bright they were through the tint, i'm very satisfied

Haha you might aswell make me an itinerary and list everything i do to my car and when because everything you've said to me so far was the next thing i did. But i'm having trouble deciding whether i should take the badges off, or paint them black

More like it engaged and you accelerated so fast you travelled back in time.

It would make sense that it does though, I know vtec engagement points can be changed on a tuneable ecu and I think set differently by gear, but stock I think it just hits at the same rpm in every gear including reverse.

LED's have a MUCH longer life span than other types of bulbs, So i suspect your right on this one yet again kenny :P 7 days just sounds wrong.

Re: DarkSouljur's Build Thread

especially if it's multiple SMD's. Must be a wiring issue between them otherwise just the bad one would be out. Probably just got a bad one.

Re: DarkSouljur's Build Thread

You got to keep in mind, these are made in china, and for $1 a pair, you're prolly bound to run into a bad egg

You can probably buy the legit $15~20 ones, and still run into a bad egg, only difference is, they'll prolly replace it for free, and the bad egg rates are probably a lot lower
(Though, some that charge this price, are probably made in the same factory as the $1 pairs)

Re: DarkSouljur's Build Thread

I'll stick with my cheap chinese $1 LEDs lol, i meant i hope they don't die on me anytime soon but if they do it's a $1, at least i won't feel like i'm being ripped off like i would if i bought a $15 one lol

Thanks Lopes! Have yours still not come in?! :S
