So I ordered some on ebay right away. They are cheap and you can even define your own logo. So I went with a blue Tesla logo.
I used the stock light fixtures because I wanted to retain as much of the original pieces as possible. And this way it also would be easier to easily remove them if necessary. So here's how I did it:
- The projector lights come with a special drill bit that is usually used to drill a hole in the door. I used this piece to drill a hole into the original light fixture. First I removed the stock black LED housing and then used some double sided tape to fix the clear plastic to a piece of wood. This helps greatly with the drilling. The drill bit is almost as wide as the light fixture so make sure you drill the hole exactly in the middle. I was lucky and didn't mess it up.
- Remove the double sided tape and fix the projector light directly onto the clear plastic light fixture. The projector light helps to stabilize the light fixture - there was only a milimeter or two left on either side of the hole.
So out I go and wiggle myself under the car door so that I can remove the old lights. I then realized that the projector lights cylinders don't fit into the rectangular original hole. I had to use a file and also some wire cutters to just slightly enlarge the hole. Yeah and it also involved some angry cursing because it's a pain in the ass to do this while on your back under the door...
