those would look good on MZ3s with the side skirts. in my case, i cant do this mod, because i dont have the side skirts... :(

any one selling the side skirts in Sunlight silver for 5 door?

yep it will work... just need to take the sills off, drill some holes, fit the appropriate LEDs and do the wiring for it... easy.. :D

i think some refer to these as flood leds or flood lights or something about floods.
seriously.

imagine a toyota corrolla riding around town and has these leds pointing at the ground.

haha out cars remind me of corollas tho, but i know its more high class. ppl really like my car here in my town. lip kit really helps it out i think. but idk..

it could look tight on my car but ppl might mistaken it for cheap underbody LEDs. couldnt they?
sorry if im being the bad bone of the bunch lol with negative thoughts...~~

they are tight on that car, but idk. maybe im just always scared of putting stuff on my car cause i think of what other ppl think about too much. someone told me i do on this forum... uhg i got to lighten up. okay lol.

you guys reckon this mod can be done?

the LEDs can be wired to the ACC wire... so they light up when the ignition is on..

i had the same thing on my Infiniti, but i only wired them up to come on when i disarmed the alarm. they would light up the area around the car at night. i did not do the driving with them on thing. that was to rice for me.

well 1st.. u need to decide what type of LEDs and how many of them u want in the side skirts...u can put any colours... so it would be near or better looking that neons... plus they would be safer as they would be less open to damage unlike the neon tubes...

im thinking about hooking up some of those puddle lights, like on that car, and putting them underneath//inside my side mirrors. and when i open my doors, they will light up ground.

or maybe fit a 12" or longer LED strip. just drill a hole for the LED itself to stick out... and mount the PCB on the inner surface of the side skirt.... :?

Agree........don't care for the neons. But I do like this subtler look. I think this would look really cool.
