oh... and the lexus door sill garnishes i linked up earlier... ;D If someone can figure out how to make the door sill illuminate? OH GAD. that'd be AWESOME.

maybe... wire up an led strip underneath the tape??? somewhere??? something. it looks good in my head ;D but i can't quite figure out the method right now haha, in regards to bringing the wire all the way to the door sill garnish.

Why not cut completely through the garnish, to where you see the metal door sill, so therefore you would have enought clearence for the tape/light combo. It would be easy to illuminate the H emblems that are on the grill, b/c they are clear plastic thats been painted. Sandpaper will take off the old paint leaving the outsides of the H clear, and then you can put a LED strip or something under it and the H would show whatever color, and the lights underneath it would shine whatever color you got them in.


Just my 2 cents.

good idea, yeah, if someone's gonna plan on lighting up these sills, they're gonna have to cut somewhere to make room for those LEDs. I didn't cut all the way through because i just wanted the emblem in there, but then i saw lighted door sills and i was like "whaahaaha!?!"

just figuring out a way to secure the badge though would require some thinking, if you cut through the garnish. maybe... cut here and there? like have the LED strip under the garnish, but wherever the LED bulbs are, drill holes in the garnish to reveal them so they shine through. so that you still have the plastic to mount onto, but the LEDs can still light it up?

It's gonna be a trick to get it to light up as evenly as that Lexus sill on page 1.

no one has pics of them on google haha, i just tried searching

yeeeah, it's a good concept, but how are we gonna go about doing it? the best i can think of is something that lights up the outline of the badge, so like LEDs embedded in the garnish around the badge, underneath the badge.

I'm thinking of etching a stencil of the Accord logo on the BACK of a rectangular piece of acrylic.

I'll mask over the letters "Accord," masking and letters both on the back of the acrylic, and paint the rest of the back black. Then I'd take off the masking tape and put tint film over the whole back, probably a couple layers worth.

Then, on the front, I'd lay down another layer of tint film.


I'd cut a matching rectangle out of the door sill and have the acrylic fit there. When the light underneath the acrylic is activated, it would shine through the tint, and the letters Accord would be highlighted, as all other light would be blocked off by the black paint.


The front surface's tint would only serve to make the acrylic look more consistent and translucent.

that would work, you could also try and frost the reverse side and that will help evenly disburse the light too, great thinking!

THAT is a GREAT idea! I'm diggin' the creativity! and at night it would solve the problem of not being able to really see the emblem/that area where "accord" will be (coupe courtesy door lights don't shine far enough to light em up haha)

it wouldnt be hard to wire lights into them seeing how we got the lights in the door pannels... wire it so it lights up when the door opens.. and i tried finding a picture of the oldsmobile door pannels but nothing... its a little light.. not to bright but just enough that it will light up the accord symbol...

To me I like havin no badges on my car so opening the door and having it say, HONDA ACCORD Will be my more of my liking, how ever, ill be doing just accord for now. I have to get a grindin bit for the dremel.



Thanks man. I love diys.
