Thanks. I got the eliminator on Ebay usa. Its a Conpetition Werkes brand. I think it was around $180au delived. it looks great but a little heavy as it is all stainless steel.

hi there and welcome

so basically the fender eliminator is a flat shaped plate that goes on the bottom of the rear there after you cut off the existing plastic hanging down bits with some appropriate brackets etc? i might have a go at a self made one i think What a Face

I didn't like the yellowy looking globes, they looked chep. so replaced them with blue LED's. mate it looks 10x better,
but it made the head light globes look shit. so new whiter globes went in. ITS A NICE LOOK.
The wedge LEDs for parkers come in red, green, blue, orange and bright white.

LEDs $10

Pack of two 55w H7 NARVA Blue power (not blue tho, whiter) they say 80% more light (bullshit) prob 20% more vision at night $65

re this - are we both talking about blue LED's here? can you get the LED's at a spare arts store [auto one etc etc].

i was thinking about getting the blue-ish narvas - are they just a standard item same as a car?
