    Lighting

    Ive done some exhausting Research and have come up with very few results.
    I was wondering if you guys could offer some advice on 3 different items.

    my first question is what size is the bulb, for the automatic transmission display on my 98-02 corolla? Sylvania doesn't provide that information. Also, does the entire center console have to be removed to access this.

    Second question is if anyone has a creative idea for trunk lighting? I have been looking up a magnetic drawer light technique. Battery powered and in theory would turn on as trunk is opened. Any better suggestions?

    And final question is about my HID kit. I do not believe it is a bad balast or bulb, but have not had time to switch harness' and try the other out. Ive found a ton of white power built around the inverter (i believe) of the HID harness. On both actually, and was wondering if that would explain a lack of start. (starts but immediately fails.)

    Reallllly Appreciate any insight guys.

    OH yeah I know what it is, and that's why the obvious overspray there made sense to the conversation.

    You have any idea how to prevent that? I never could on the larger parts, so I just "overspray" the entire thing to make it look flat.

    My HID was too buggy, so I went back to Stock with Halogen Bulbs.
    Probable due to the chink shyte we get down here and Importing is just not worth it.
