86 Courtesy Lamps upgrade

So I wasn’t a fan of the Red Courtesy Lamps so I decided to change them up.
What I started with, red and yucky.

So I ordered some parts from Japan, cost me $18 shipped 😀 can’t complain for that price for a genuinen JDM Part 😀

No I am sourcing some T10 LED Lights to go inside this to finish off the look I am going for. BRIGHT LIGHTS!!!
Brighter is always better.
