right my plan was to buy the newer rear centre section split it paint the red part black stick it back together and fit to mine but i have the older model so need to move the fogs so i take it i need the full lot to achieve this hope this makes sense
Not just a case of moving the 1 wire over?
Have you considered Flyeyes/Spi Vision as a cheaper alternative?
I thought about painting the insides myself I did it to the front lights on a Hyundai Coupe I had before the civic but splitting the mastic and getting it back and sealed neatly is a real pain in the behind and these units steam up enough as it is!
The fog light wire you will need to extend a little to put it in its new position.
The wiring in your car will have 3 wires going to the tail lights, these wires will need to be isolated as the new cluster will only use 2 wires (positive and negative for the tail bulbs i think - the brake lights only illuminate in the same cluster as the indicators on later models and the type r.
You will then need to take power from the numberplate bulb wires to power the tail lights.
(i hope this makes some sort of sense to you lol)
I will let you know when they are removed anyway, like i said should be sometime next week.
yip i thought of wot you said it was just to make it a bit more authentic i done similar to my mondeo headlights split to paint them black and reseal worked out ok but i know what you mean mine is steaming up now so either way
