Did some tinkering on the R53 yesterday

I have had this R53 for almost 3 years now.....I've been so busy working on the R52 that I have been neglecting it's brother.......not much is needed to do on the R53.....I repaired or replaced a lot of things on this car after I got it. The only modification I have done to the engine is the 15% pulley added while I had the supercharger off to do the service on it. That pulley really woke up the engine.

Anyway, what I did yesterday was to finish putting the lightly smoked arch side marker lights in the car. I already had installed the aftermarket tail lights and dark smoked third brake light shortly after I got the car. LED bulbs are in the tail lights for running lights, stop lights, & turn signals. I also wired the two upper fog light bulbs to light up as brake lights while I was doing the tail lens swap

Not much else to say, pictures are self explanatory.....and not much else to do to the car, I'm pretty happy with the way it looks and performs now
