Hey Gene, where did you get your markers from and what style,how much, and what maker? Sorry for all the questions ,but its something I am considering if its relatively inexpensive. Gotta save for the turbo.

Here's mine

If you're looking at the right side of the car:

From the bottom of the side sill (perf package), it's about 18 1/8 inches up. Then using that, it's about 4 1/8 inches to the right of where the edge of the fender meets the door. That's the DEAD CENTER of where my sidemarker sits.

I used my dad's tape measure. Give or take 1/8 of an inch for human error. Hope I've been of some help.

hey SS when you get those on let us have a look and how hard they were to install. One more question, do you know if you have to cut a hole in the body, or do they just screw on and drill a hole for the wires?

Was the whole round or was it rectangular ?

I have a set of side markers, but Im a wuss, and didint dare make the wholes in my fender myself. Mainly cause it would have to be rectangular and not round , which is easier with the right bit.

Wait lets get this straight guys I don't have them installed yet I've had them laying around for about a month and I'm gonna install them this weekend hopefully if the weather holds out......But from what I can see from the instructions you drill a small hole where the shaft(is what I'm calling it)goes and then you slide the marker into that hole and use the self tapping screw they provided and drill it into the car.....But before I'm gonna treat the exposed areas that I drilled and screwed into with some paint,for protection....It's gonna be a really install,,,I could do it with my eyes shut.....:D

Well that might be a bit hard:D
