Your probably going to have to take the light assembly out and try to mock something up using an actual LED bulb inside it, they're brighter and last longer. I noticed Wal-Mart has packs of 4 led's that are pretty bright i tried the blue one's you just can't have them shining at your face THEY'RE BRIGHT! Whether you have a Wal-Mart or not i don't know, i'm in Canada so i don't know what's available to you.

it's super easy!

find out what regular bulb # you need, then go to :autolumination.com

they have led replacements for most any bulb your car uses.

I've been told that if you email the guy you will get a better price than is listed on the store. I've bought a bunch of LED's from that store and they are good quality.

Pardon my ignorance, but if you are referring to the light under the roof, I have been doing this trick (for lack of better term) for over ten years. Go to an autoparts store and purchase the tail lense repair tape--I usually get the one that is about 4"x4" and it comes in red and orange (or amber).

Take out the lense cover and cut a piece of the red repair tape to fit inside the lense. Tape in onto the lense from the inside (between the light and the lense) and put the lense back and walaah. I have gotten so many compliments and convinced plenty to do the same instead of changing bulbs.

Oops, I forgot, you would use the stock bulb or a hyperwhite..depending on your taste.

*Now if you were not referring to this light, I apologize...

dome light

yes i am referring to the light in the middle of the headliner on the roof inside. The bulb is kind of oval (connector on both sides of bulb) kind of like this <===>

Why don't you stop being a ricer and put in a normal bulb? It's not cool and it doesn't look cool. IMO and many others, it makes you look like a dumbass.

so eat me

Don't listen to no reason. I have red 3000 GT door light covers in my car (my other car) and yes a red dome light and I am NOT a ricer.

Just don't install any stickers, spoilers, or heavy body kits to slow your car down you ricer

RICER?!?!? Just because of a red dome light. Some people have lives outside of their cars (or inside their cars).

I have gotten nothing but compliments. IMO, this is not a showoff piece--it is a mood light. I have had plenty of action ( ), oops, I meant ( :kiss: ) under the red dome light.

And if that is being a ricer, then count me in. And no I do not and would not put "vtec" stickers on any of my cars.

There is tons of rice on this board.... that's why I don't post here much more. Yeah, I'm mad because I didn't think about it first *rolls eyes* ... because that's SOOOO origional. Why don't you take the money you spend on a stupid light and save it for something worth purchasing.... but I guess you like to impress 14-17 year old girls....

And the only cool 3000 GT's are the VR4's.... my buddy has one it's hella fast because he didn't waste his money on lights... and the rear turbo is a bitch to replace... and don't get me started how retarded it is to just change the spark plugs on that thing... I've spent a few weekends under those cars lately.... but it's hella fast and AWD... too bad it's heavier than a bitch.... total kudos to someone who tricks out a VR4.

so eat me

I know they rice them out... but I haven't seen a riced out VR4 yet... I think it's because most ricers couldn't afford that model.

so eat me
