I knew I read somewhere that someone took a Red ST 3rd brake light and replaced their stock clear one? Can anyone confirm the part number that will fit or RS?
Got it.Thom, @thomwithah
I think you are overthinking it. Meticulous you are....
It's super easy, use bullet connectors and they whole thing can be made OE in 2 min.
Yes you will need put connectors on the OE wiring and you'll need to cut the OE wires but thats it.....it is kind of plug and play after you make the connectors.
I wasn't looking at it for the plug harnesses specificallly, but I don't think they are really there on both ends at all.
The makers don't sell any pre done harness', and I tend to think if that was the way to go, they'd go that path.
They all seem to provide bullet connectors.....
I really do get that. I know I'm the only one that'd know, but that's just it, I would know. It just makes me feel better knowing It can go back to 100% OE, with no holes or cuts, if need be. For most people, they'd probably never think about it again; me, I'd never forget it. This car isn't going "race car" for at least 5 years... That's the deal I made with myself, and I very much plan to stick with it. Till then, no cuts, no holes, even if it's just a silly wire that's hidden. It's a damn sickness, for sure. For example, I scratched one of the bits behind the bumper, that you don't use afterwards, while installing my oil cooler. I bought a new one just to sit on the shelf, "just in case". It's a mental problem, but it doesn't hurt anything other than my wallet, so far. It's a price I pay for my, sick, peace of mind.Yes you have to cut the OE wire and I understand folks don't want to cut or drill.
but you cut it simply to make a male and female connectors available, if you don't use it reconnect and tape, one would never know.
The ground is vampire tapped or run your own ground.
That's a lot of extra work, Thom, for something your going to install and not have to think about again.
All the wiring is tucked away, easily returned to OE with connectors, and not usually accessed by an average user.
KISS - Keep it simple.....
I have a second, new, bumper already. It's got about 3 more weeks before I install it to be wrapped in PPF. I'm taking my time and letting the paint cure well/long enough, even after being "double baked", so as to minimize any risk of issues realated to the PPF install or future removal. After PPF, it'll be removed and kept for "special occasions".What's your plan for something like your incoming Scrape Armor? that requires, gulp, holes to be drilled into the bottom of the bumper
