now onto the brake light mod... its a new twist on an old mod, i had a little problem with the LED earlier, the board actually came un-glued from the light, so i had to go re-glue it, but couldn't find the glue, so this is what i mobbed for a while

Hated the old grill and like the black heads. Like the new grill and dislike the stock heads.
