Did mine today, Will snap pics when it gets darker.. Only ran into 1 issue.. When I bent the Led connector wires back, I snapped one, and didn't realize till after I installed it.. Good thing I checked before putting the car back together.. Man that would have sucked, Took it out.. Needed to drill out the LED damn super glue, and just replaced it with another..

Well I finally finished them Just did mine yesterday....... I'm happy with them Wish they were a bit brighter like Xenon's ubt I'll probably switch them out later for some brighter ones.

damn I really like this mod, but the led side markers dont seem to match the headlights... in one pic the headlights look sorta yellow, I've never seen a Z w/ yellow old style lights before so I guess its just the pic, and the LEDs look blue, I'de have to go w/ a more subtle white that matches more

Clear markers and LED ordered... now just waiting for them to come in so I can try this. Since I wasn't sure what color would look best I thought a bit of experimentation might be in order. I have ordered blue, while and amber LED's and intend to test out each color on both the clear and amber side markers. I'll take pics and post as I go so hopefully that will help those who might not be convinced which color combination is best.

just thought originals are not bad. its part of the design. all z's has a really eye catching headlight especially on the 06' n' 07'. and that is your first read of focal point from front. why taking that out? lights up would be awsome. but the reflector part is just a small indication TO THE DESIGN. the real thing is the head light. just dif opinion.. u guys got really nice craftments.
