Hella side markers LED-passenger side done

I posted up the main thread over on YT.

Here is a link-you know me I get all wordy...

Doing the Hella LED side marker indicators - YotaTech Forums

Really satisfying to get this going at last. I have had the LEDs a few months now and Hella bugging me to get them some pictures of the finished product. I think I am too late to make the latest catalog, but here is how it turned out.

Still have drivers side to go...

thanks guys

I was like you Justin-I never thought I would be cutting a hole in the fenders like this but it was just not that difficult at all.

It lets people know that are beside the truck of your intentions, too many people just don't pay attention these days...

Drilled out most of the drivers side last evening and hoping to finish up that side's hole tonight. One of the more rewarding mods I have done so far.

thanks for the feedback.

jsmarine-that caffeine will kill ya...we go through a lot of the Dew around here. Love that stuff...

astute observers may have noticed that Avalanche stained glass in the window...

RonMaiden doh I finally get it now-iRonMaiden I am a bit slow...

drivers side now done

tonight's pics with the Front Range in the background, and how about those free Ivan Stewart rims?

Rock lights on as well...refer to the main Yota Tech link for all the deets.

Really rewarding project. Total cost under $40. Big assist to Lowe's and Harbor Freight just like many of these projects.

Good job! I agree people really hardly pay attention to others on the road these days. Pick yourself up some TRD center caps. Truck is comming a long way.
Did you ever think about putting big LED orange markers in side of the front bumper?

thanks

I have 2 good caps and 2 kind of crappy looking ones. I think I will just run without caps for a bit...

Here is a shot of the orange lit turn signals up front-they are not LED but mickwheeler over on yota tech pointed these out to me.

Lilly always sticking her nose in... I will get a nite shot soon.

Nice work Ron. I'll be doing this mod soon. In Australia (and almost every other country in the world) all vehicles must have side indicators and I still find it annoying and surprising that North America does not. Red turn signals is another NA stupid idea that I still find hard to get used to.

I'll be in AU next month and plan to grab a set of Hilux side signals from a junk yard.

I did the same thing but used the LED side markers from a 2005 VW beetle. This is what it looks like installed.
http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/b...emarker035.jpg

Also I have the entire install write up and literally take you by the hand on the installation at this link on YotaTech. I call mine "Mods for Dummies". Ron can vouch for my installs.
LED Side Marker Lights - YotaTech Forums

I usually try to use stuff from other vehicles, very rare I use something "new". Anyway nice job Ron, wanted to come over to this side of the pond to see if I could find out some more stuff about some of my pending repairs/mods. Look for more postings here too
