Too late for a How To unfortunately,
But the basic idea as to drill a small hole in the plastic & wire these LED's to the dome light circuit.

LED's I used:

Hope it helps Mitch.

Edit:
If you decide to do this, sand or rough up the tip of the LED's to diffuse the light better.

How'd you go with the BKK Evo X replica front bumper? I've been wanting one myself but waiting for them to return on eBay

Its' been a while since I've visited my own thread:

But Luke, for what its worth, the Evo X front from BKK is quite good.
Fitment isn't 100%
Compared to my OEM Ralliart front bar, you can definitely notice the difference in fitment. But that is to be expected from an aftermarket part? It wasn't anything to be too concerned over, & once the part is painted - One wouldn't notice the fitment issues unless they're a complete 'Lancer guy' or they are looking for faults.

If your after a EVO X look, minus the price, there's nothing to be worried about, the kit comes with everything ready to go. You just need to paint it.


Personally, I alternate between the EVO X front & Ralliart front atm.
But I *might stick to one in particular soon as I've added a DRL kit just above the fogs & it looks great IMO. Will update my ride thread with pics soon on my final setup.

Thanks for all the comments & appreciation on this thread guys. :)
It makes the mods/work feel more deserving.
I'm more focused on the interior side of things as (the car looks great from factory) & it's my daily car. So the stereo (custom Nexus 7 tablet install) & SQ side of things has been my major focus in the past weeks.

Thanks Steve!

tbh the car looks stock form the outside, everything I've used is factory or a factory replica from X-Factor.
Even the black vinyl roof is almost unnoticeable on the Grey at times.
I'll pop into the next Sydney meet I think.

Minor mods inside that you might notice: Radio, - with a banging speaker system, Pillar wraps, steering cover, colour cluster etc. Door LED"s look nice at night though I'll try to snap a pic in the evening

Installed DRL's next to the fog lights
Plenty bright, comparable to stock Lexus, AUDI brightness.

Will keep them on the car for a week or two before I decide if they are permanent or not.
Opinions welcome!

That looks great Dazz. Great colour choice too. :)
I used a relay on mine which allows them to switch off or reduce brightness when the low beams are on.
I'll post some info on the LEDs after work today.

A few weeks ago I put my evo x front end back on.

I still need to install my DRL's again next to the fog lamps.



My Ralliart bumper is on Gumtree is anyone is after one.
Damage free and includes foglights!

I can't find the eBay link as the listing has expired, but they were these ones:

Plenty bright, a crisp white. Can't complain for the price.
