    Sometimes I wish Kia hadn't screwed up my special order and I had gotten the Titanium I ordered.

    OK - Up next for this weekend is switches & wiring for my amp, fogs and LED footwell kit. Still not sure on switch placement but I have lots of ideas from previous posts. Hoping my NEW SSD Light Bar shows up soon (got a little bonus from Mike as well), my Hella 1200 fogs arrived and are wired up with my matching Eiko CVS bulbs.

    I will finish the wiring for the Kicker sub while I'm at it and secure it to the floor.

    I had to order a new garage door opener, it's the only thing I forgot to remove before trading in my old car. I guess you never realize how much of a convenience it is till something is gone. :(

    Oh yeah - K&N air filter installed also...

    Well no guesses on the plates so here it is...

    Posted Image

    Pics of the Eiko CVS headlight bulbs, as I said they are around 4100K range, very bright and so far are a great upgrade over the stocks. Also pics of my 5W CREE reverse lights and new LED interior lights. The matching footwell kit is on for this weekend still.

    P.S. - I purchased the interior led kit & 5W led reverse lights from this seller on ebay:

    http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1439.l2649

    AWESOME kit, quality and price right now...

    The last major piece is here...

    Posted Image

    It will have to wait until next weekend unfortunately, I want to finish some wiring and install these babies -

    Thanks for the sweet deal Mike ! ! ! Gonna paint these black and get them on ASAP...

    Why?

    Tomato A&P doesn't make anything for the Soul.

    Not that I've ever seen.

    Looking good except for that rear decal. Just my opinion.

    Because I like it...

    Got most of the wiring done, couldn't find a 3/4" drill for my switched so I will finish that up later. Decided to wire all 3 on the back of the rear console, I will hardly ever need to access them and they are very easy for me to reach there, also that piece is cheap to replace if needed in the future. Again the switches will be for my amp, fogs and footwell lighting.

    Posted Image

    More later, enjoy the weekend ! ! !

    BUMMER - only got half of my footwell kit in today, gonna have to wait another week for the install ! ! ! :rant2:

    Trip to HD - $19

    Intrerior LED's - $108

    Finished product - PRICELESS

    Well not finished yet, but close, real close... installed a led strip for the hatch and wired it to the hatch light. It shines down onto the interior from the rear glass, I'll get a pic up tonight. Switches are installed and only need the fogs and the rest of the footwell lighting for completion.

    Next weekend: light bar, fogs, footwell leds & SSD fog air inlet thingies.

    Hatch LED strip lighting wired to rear light.

    All right, the rest of my led's are on the way, they will be installed for sure but the rest may have to wait for the middle of the month?!?!?!

    Argh - been too busy with life to play!

    My SOUL has been doing awesome so far, it has exceeded my expectations in all areas and I did do a lot of research on this vehicle.

    Here is a peek of my wish list:
    • Black sport spoiler
    • Front window tint
    • Black hatch handle
    • SSD strut bar & matching engine cover
    • Redline Tuning hood strut
    • Polyurethane bushings for sway bars
