is there anyway to secure it on my fender, because it seems so easy to steal.

glue it on? Or maybe you can make a pice of metal or something that you can screw from the back to lock it in place?

Hey guys thanks for the head up on the metal nibblers, They work like a charm,

Yeah...they are easy to steal. Somebody swiped mine (I'm the OG sidemarker diy'er, Kenny and Tony rode my nuts on this one. ) so I picked up some smoked clear knockoffs that look better with my black and white car.

I don't think you could do anything from the outside, but I suppose that you could pull the fender off and rig up a bracket or something.

No, we did not use gaskets on our sidemarkers, the fit was close enough to the frame that water didn't really get in. I've had them on through a rainy season and have not had any rust problems. The coating of touch up paint on the raw metal should be enough to prevent rust, but if you can get the gaskets, and you'd feel more comfortable with them, go ahead and put them on. Trixiem and I live in Southern California where rain is not really that big of an issue. Sorry, can't really help you with the headlight problem, sounds like you might have to get a non-US headlight bulb for those JDM headlights. A couple of aftermarket stores sell them, I can't say which ones off the top of my head right now though.

Rust is not a problem as long as you make sure you coat the bare metal with touchup paint.

Looks pretty trick. I thought for half a second about doing it but I decided the yellow wouldn't look good with the black housing JDM lights that are in the mail. Always need that extra little something to set yourself apart from anybody and everybody.

Oh wait, just found 'em on Ebay, and they make them in clear.... Hmmmmm.

I bought them in amber anyway, They are used JDM from japan and come with the OEM connector plugs some of you guys asked about. Problem is the plugs have three wires coming out of them. I need to know where to splice the third wire. Leave oit dangling? Or should I just use the dang female crimp connectors even though I am afraid they will fall off?

*edit* they came in today, stupid thing is I was excited because I thought before I opened the box that it would be the cam plate bolts that I need to make the car run. instead they are the damn side marker lights. DOH!

*edit again* Ok, two of the three wires are green with white stripes and the third is all black, somebody help me with this. I assume that i will use the green wires to tap and just leave the black one alone.

*edit once more* F-it I'll just use the crimp connectors. I have some lying around somewhere!

thx for the write up, i did this last night and it turned out great... i found the dremel easier to use if you've got a strong/steady hand.




and i did a good job at breaking my temp gauge needle when i dropped the CTR bezel in... had to order a new gas/temp assy.



pics are from a nextel i860 cam phone so the quality isn't that great.

does anyone have a pic of a JDM CTR fender for comparison purposes to see where the JDM fenders have the holes cut?

Those side markers that you guys installed look a bit higher then the JDM ones. It looks great though.

look at the measurements/picture and create your own template. Thats what I did, just use a ruler, measure twice, cut once.

The solution that Chris Law did looks like he ended up going with our crimp connectors and not using the CTR OEM connector plug. However, with my understanding of wiring (which is limitied) I would assume that the two green wires each tap into the two "live" wires. One green would tap the red (parking lights) and the other would tap the green (turn signal) and then the black would be tapped into the ground wire. I'm not sure how this would work though, since that would allow power to always be passing through the light and I think it would just always stay on when you had your headlights on. The reason you're blowing fuses is probably because you haven't been tapping the black wire, it needs to be grounded. You also might want to consider upping the fuse value since you'll be tapping both your city lights and your sidemarker lights, although there shouldn't really be any reason too, just make sure that nothing is making contact with other wires. The option that you can do that follows our wiring, would be to remove the OEM plugs and just connect to the two metal tabs coming out of the bottom of the light plug. This would mean that only one wire would go to either red or green on your car, and the other would tap into the black (ground). As for your city lights, you would do the same thing, except you would definitely tap the red wire so that it came on only with your parking lights. I've never seen a city light blink, and there's no need for it to do so since you have a turn signal in the headlight housing already. And then the other wire would tap into the ground.

Sorry I've been MIA on this. I have no idea where Kenny (Trixiem) is, so I don't think he is going to chime in on this issue. He is more knowledgable about electrical unfortunately. I hope that this helps. Good luck.

im right here. can you take a picture of the plug and pm it to me or upload it on here. it also confuses me as to why there would be three wires coming from a single filament bulb my assumption would be to find the two live wires that actually controls the bulb... try wiring up a 9v to two of the wires to see if it lights up, then hook those wires up to the turn singal for usdm, or turn signal and park signal for JDM goodness.

As for the city light, tap both of those wires to the red(parkinglight) and ground from the headlight harness... sorry im so vague right now cause i have no access to a car for a short period of time.

i'll check back here after i look around, i think i have one of those plugs too actually. so hang tight.
