Dungu LED fogs - yellow plus yellow film on fog lens:



Philips X-treme Ultinon LED Golden Yellow 2700K 12793UNIX2 with yellow film on fog lens:



They're actually close in color, but the Philips is obviously aimed properly, giving much more width.

I really like the carbon wrap. I donít know how to work with it. I tried to do the rear garnish and failed. May have it done by a professional.

The above is the right turn signal wire. Use this green to the pillar light signal (red).


Attachment 9668
The above is the left tail light wire bundle.


Attachment 9669
The above is another picture of the left side tail light bundle. You can see where I tapped into the green wire for the brake light.


Attachment 9670
The above is the left brake light wires. Use this green to both of the pillar light brake (yellow and green)


Attachment 9671
The above is the left turn signal wire. Use this yellow to the pillar turn signal (red).


Attachment 9672
The above shows my alternative to drilling a new hole. I removed this "guide pin" from the pillar light assembly.


Attachment 9673
The above shows that with the "guide pin" removed, the pillar light is still water sealed. I taped the wires to reduce chaffing. Extra wiring added, and all feed into the OEM rubber covering between the body and rear hatch door.


Attachment 9674
The above shows the OEM female counterpart to the "guide pin".


Attachment 9675
The above shows the damage to the gasket when removed. If you have suspected water leaks, this thin gasket may be the culprit. I had to splice some of the pillar light wires to fit them into the hole, as the connectors do not fit in the hole. I used duct tape to seal over the hole, although I may use something else later on.


Attachment 9676
Finally, I used some O-rings to prevent excessive movement and vibration. I may switch to flat rubber washers.
Impressive, very impressive. Where did you buy the lights?

Lloyd's Rubbertite Cargo Mat in Red, shown with generic cargo mat:





I never understood why manufacturers perforate waterproof products:

Generic mat is more like blown EVA or some other foam. Everything slides on it.

The rubbertite feels more grippy and is designed to be more grippy. In my pic, it sits well, even though it's on top of 1/2" wood. The underside has the nubs for gripping carpet and it doesn't slide around on top of the wood.

Is the generic one waterproof? I don't mind things sliding. I use milk crates to keep things organized back there. I can see the generics ones for < $20 so my cheap self is leaning towards that option.

Since I've owned the generic mat, it is still waterproof.

Had to remove the Fiamm Lo Tone horn. Even though I aimed the opening downwards, water somehow got in there and killed it. The lo tone horn is located behind and slightly above the passenger side fog.

The light mechanism itself is from Honda. The lights are COB LED's from eBay. I bought them in various sizes for different projects.


Funny, I'm thinking about adding even more lighting to the hatch area.

Only requires a slight cutting of the cheap battery tray.

Rear view of USB port (on left) and HDMI port.




And the OEM USB interface harness. No this doesn't fit a standard USB.

So after tinkering with my sound system's DSP with built in analyzer (not real time, just input and output signals), I've come to these conclusions of the factory system:


- front channels are geared for mid to high range
- rear channels are geared for mid to low range
- if there is some bass roll off, then it's subtle enough that I'll use it to protect the sub at high volumes. I didn't use my amp's bass restoration feature.
