EXT: Bumper lights as markers

ive been wanting to do this for a long time and I finally figured out an easy way to do this with only extending a couple wires and using everything the car already has
this is best for people who have put JDM headlights on their cars because it only has room for one bulb for the signal.

What you will need
- sidecutters
- wire strippers
- 18 gauge wire
- connector butts
- dremel tool


-take the bulb that was closest to the stock headlight, this is because it stays on while the markers are on.
-cut the wires that go to the socket and extended them so they would reach the signal.

- take out the signals out of the bumper
- drill a small hole into the signal housing smaller than the actual socket, its better to be smaller than bigger

- put the socket in the signal

- connect the all the wires and connectors to the sockets
- put the signals back in turn on the lights and enjoy
Before

After

its kinda hard to see when its bright outside I should really take a picture when its dark out
* remember that these are only 194 bulbs so they are not super bright i guess you could always get a different socket and bulb and do the same thing if you wanted it to be brighter, i find that it is just right *

If I were you I would have done the same thing but into the highbeams to look like DRL's (day time running lights)

But still props for making it work
