yup, thats all there is to it. some little kit i bought at pep boys, then got better blubs at a speed shop. i drilled a hole in each headlamp case and they fit in. i hooked em up to a toggle switch so i can turn the color lights on when i want.

Its not that hard at all overdrive. Go ahead and give it a whirl. Good way to learn the little things about the scort to move on to harder projects.

Mine all came from parts cars with the exception of the colored bulbs and switch.Ididdn´t even lnow they made a kit.It probably would have been alot easier to do that.But I did it about a year and a half ago so it might not have been available then.

Well yeah pretty much.Just make sure your holes are the right size for the sockets you intend to use.Mine had seals with the sockets when I took ´em off but water got in where the wires run through the sockets so I had to silicone around them.Also I put mine on top of the headlight body not the back so you can´t see the bulbs when you look at the headlight,you only know they are there when they are on.just be careful of the reflectors within the headlight body,they are dead center above the bulb opening.In mine there was also plastic supports inside that I had to shave to get the sockets to lock in.
