Hey everyone,

Let me tell you about this install. I had this idea based off of a video that I found on YouTube. I purchased rear bumper lights that would replace the reflectors for $60. They arrived in about 2 days. They are only offered in red so I decided to purchase pre-cut 20% smoke tint since I knew that I would be changing my tail lights anyway so I figured that I would kill one bird with two stones.

The tint overlay did NOT fit the aftermarket reflector lights which was my fault because I assumed that the lights were exactly the same size as my reflector lights but they aren’t. So I ended up going and buying a roll of tint for $10 from an auto parts store and tinted them myself.

The install itself wasn’t bad but I was struggling because it is hot and humid as **** in Virginia Beach and it was a pain to get all of my bumper clips removed as well as a couple of screws.

I thought about trying to do a step by step tutorial for anyone who wanted to try this but it was too hot for all of that. I took a few pics and I will post them. As soon as it gets dark here then I will post more.

Thanks!

Really nice. Now give up the information about the rear red emblem. I got one for my steering wheel but did not think it would be as easy to put the one on the rear bumper as easy.

I ordered it from EBay back in March. It came in a set with the front emblem. The rear emblem didn’t fit the way that I wanted it to so I broke off the pegs and put heavy duty Velcro on it and it hasn’t slipped off or anything the whole time that it has been on the car. I did purchase an extra one just in case lol.
