I can't see the ones I filled anymore...

    Cool, thanks! I'm trying to decide if it's worth using prior to handing the car over to a shop for ceramic coating.

    This was part of it. There is clear between the red and orange. I believe the orange, among other things, is some kind of sticker overlaid on top of the light.

    Personally I'd respray the panel before putting any kind of semi-permanent coating on it. You'd pretty much be "sealing in" the imperfections otherwise...

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Yes, yes it is. The detailer should buff out swirl marks and such before coating, so he can polish right over your paint fills.

    Dr C works great but if you decide to paint they say it interferes w it, not sure of the details.

    I'm struggling ordering LED bulbs for the OEM RCR setup. Can someone weigh in to let me know if this sounds correct for the rear end of RCR?

    1 Pair White Reverse Lights 1156 P21W
    1 Pair Amber Turn Signal Lights (For the Clear section)- 1156 P21W
    4 Pairs Red Brake Lights (1 pair for Trunk lid, 3 pairs for Main Side Lamp Assembly) 1156 P21W

    Sounds right to me. You might change your mind on the 3 bottom pairs though; let me know how they work out for you. On my car, the bottom row of lights was WAY too bright at night, and wasn't much different in brightness as the brake light, as though the car didn't know how to turn them down to 50%. Hopefully yours work as intended.

    Make sure the red and amber bulb pairs are CANBUS bulbs, otherwise you'll find yourself searching for resistors to add.

    Awesome, thanks for the info. Saw your other post in the lighting section and I think I understand better now. Returning all the bimmian/weisslicht lights except for the side indicator LEDs (as your note mentioned you have yet to find bright enough ones) and going ebay Cree canbus sets for 1/5 the price. win!
