Hey all, I installed an Amp'd Emblem on the rear of my car last weekend, just wanted to drop some quick comments and photos.

I got the extreme red. The photos do this no justice. In person, the emblem is absolutely STUNNING! Well worth every cent Amp'd asks for them. I wired it to my third brake light, so when I hit the brakes it lights up. This effect really works with the car. Honda SHOULD have made the Z's like this. My father, who is 64, thought it looked stock, which is saying a lot considering his age.

I attempted to wire it to the tail lights that way when the lights come on, the emblem stays on. This is possible, but difficult. I may attempt this again in the future.

Also, I was very impressed with the care put into the packaging. Maybe a minor point, but when you see it you'll understand.

Enjoy these pics, and within a few days I will be providing a very detailed writeup of the install process. Note: pics 3 and 4 are more like what it looks like in person. The first two are about as bright as it is in direct, bright sunlight. Even pics 3 and 4 don't do it justice, but that's a better idea of how it will look.

Wow! Very impressive and meticulous. You do some great work D! Will look at linking this somehow, or at the least, providing the PDF for customers. Thanks for the time and effort you put into this. And thanks for the kind words!

Sincerely,
Ampd
