I would be more than willing to head this up for DC Fester's. Another DIY project... hahaha...

Long, if you can PM me with some install directions, that would be great. Also, on a scale of 1-10, difficulty and timeframe would give me a good idea of what I need to be working with. (im certainly in, and will paypal tonight).

Thanks Long!!!

Bavarian19: Just let me know when you're gonna pull the trigger and when we can arrange some sort of group meet/install get together inthe DC area....I think I'm down for the yellows, thinking the whites would be washed out by the xenons...

edit: darn, can't decide whites or yellows

bavarian19: I believe ... as per the BREX install instructions, its gonna be a wheels off exercise...let me think of a place as well, I know someone who has a gas station with service bay (no promises, though)...

If you're paypalling longtran tonight, PM me...to save on shipping I don't mind having mine bundle-shipped to your place, I can get it from you later as soon as we schedule a get-together...

Longtran: Would you consider something in a lighter shade of blue (read: won't attract the lawman's attention) ... lighter than the ones you've done but dark enough for contrast with the bluest tone our xenons can get (not much blue I know...)

matt0528: interesting way of doing the euro plate. i've seen people use their actual numbers, but never thought of putting the state on it.

Hey, Long - I am curious - if you founded this PMB kit, what are you going to do with the Brex kit you also have/ordered? Is Brex better than your PMB?

Long,

I sent you the money in two installments. One for the amount, and one for shipping (because Im an idiot)...

Any other DC members that want to save on shipping and have it sent with mine, I guess let longtran know in your payment. I paypal'ed mine, so send in your money!!!

You're the man! I'll wait for your DIY installation of PMB to your SG & see how the looks w/ xenon turn on before pulling the trigger.
