Sounds good I showed my fiance the face lift and she likes it. I think personally it will add some style especially with the Mambas any thoughts? Josh might have to help me find a shop to get all the stuff painted including some extras

Not too difficult really, ordered the led arrows on eBay, I've got red as well as the amber and I made them QD so I can swap out quickly and easily if one fails or I dislike the amber and want red. Modern mirrors are 2 way mirrors and not the old school film on glass style. All that needs to be done is remove the glass from the housing and motor, decide the location and mark it, I used a dremel and cut out the perimeter of the arrow though the plastic backing down to the glass. The plastic backing/mount is attached to the glass via a layer of double sided 3M so once the outline is cut you just have to slowly and carefully work around the cut lifting the piece out. Once the cutout is removed clean the residual adhesive from the glass and lay the led arrow in. I prepped my LEDs with a silicone backing so that they are water tight. You can attach to the mirror however you see fit, I used adhesive wrap to cover the back and prevent any unwanted light from passing through the mirror. Wiring can be done however clean or nasty you're comfortable with (as with anything...) I ran my wires through the joint of the mirror where the motor wires travel, down through the door and passed through the harness conduit from door to cab. From there I chose to follow the harness through the firewall and routed up to the front to gain access to each turn signal circuit. Kind of a long process but that's only because my damned OCD won't allow me to be satisfied with sub par or mediocre workmanship, the wiring could've been completed a lot faster... As always, any questions, feel free to ask.
