Also for anyone looking to buy where I did. I tried my link from prior posts. Google "best of hong kong" and then click the link to the site. It loads up that way.
I just did this. I got all the LEDs working except for the front. I used every bulb every which way and it just won't light up the LED panel. What am I doing wrong? I'm pretty sure the small bulb is the correct adapter to use.
Edit: Looking back at the DIY, I didn't even get a cargo area bulb. WTF??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
PM sent to T1R's rep on here.
Haven't had time, but I think that's the culprit. They sent 3 packs of the little universal LED panel with bulb adapters. I'm wondering if this is known or if they miscounted.Shatner.. get it figured out? Bad bulbs?
I only got 4 T10 bulbs. While installing I completely forgot about the cargo area. When I get in there and finish it I'll check out the cargo area.If they sent three of those.. then you did get the cargo area light.. those are for the map lights and one for the cargo area. You may also have to switch polarity on the plug for the adapter. You should of also got four of the T10 5 LED bulb? for the doors and "backseat" area?
4 T10's is all you need! Doors and "backseat" area!I only got 4 T10 bulbs. While installing I completely forgot about the cargo area. When I get in there and finish it I'll check out the cargo area.
I switched polarities any which way possible on one of the front lights.
I'm taking today off so maybe I'll get to it.
I just sayed screw it and GTFO there to finish it up. You're right, about the cargo, you just don't use a festoon adapter. Got the fronts finished up. I'm not sure I like my LED panel placement. Has anyone found a great spot for the map lights?4 T10's is all you need! Doors and "backseat" area!
The LED panel lights (map and cargo) are kind of weird... I had to play with bulb placement on mine to get them working.. at first they didnt.. then they did! And haven't failed since. Test the LED board by plugging in the T10 adapter into a door light.. and plug the LED board into it.. that way you can make sure the boards are good.
Anytime, brother! I will try to get a shot of how I mounted mine.. and post it for you. Works pretty well, but the panels are still a little large for that area behind the lens.I just sayed screw it and GTFO there to finish it up.

Thanks CRaZee! :thumbsup:
Well, I just placed my order (it is just besthongkong.com for their url) and I hope to have pics up shortly after I get them.Ok so my update. Sorry I work offshore a lot and dont have time to go home often. So i do not have pics of the installed LEDS and FESTOONS.
I ordered from bestofhongkong.com
The 4LED 31mm Festoons work great. I put the blue in the overhead, door, behind seats. And for the trunk White LED. Now I have it set to turn on lights when the door is open or you turn the key too off. Let me tell you the blue is really nice. It is not Blaring blue, but a more nice ambient blue for you to grab your items and leave your car. I really enjoy it, it is the perfect amount of light for me. Not to mention at night when you unlock your car the whole interior grows blue. Very sweet IMO. Will try to get a pic, but it could be a month or better before I see my car again.
