  2. beat to death topics, perhaps....rear reflectors, and other n00b mod questions

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Just picked up a 2016 +. First thing when I was looking at the Soul, was the rear round reflectors. They should be tail light/running light/turn signals. Now, being in the trucking industry for 30 years, those reflectors are awfully close to the same size as big rig trailer lights. Seems...

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Had some extra CF leftover from working on a 3rd brakelight overlay for XxHaimBondxX, I felt my Alien-ism coming on. I plan on getting the signal lights like MarkM did after the 1st of the year, but for now... I think this will do.

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I hooked up the wiring to my new beehive LED lights (Soul nipples). They really work so well I and am going to leave them on. Wiring was very easy since I had installed trailer light wiring so I just had to tap into those. The LEDs now work with the cars Brake,Turn and Running lights. What do...
  5. Ordered LED lights to make rear reflectors functional. !!!

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    The bee hive lights I installed yesterday while looking good they just were not perfect so I ordered a different set of lights that should work better. The new ones are rectangular and are 3 1/2" x 1 3/8"" x 3/8" thick. Our round reflectors are 4.5". Part of the problem is our reflectors point...
  6. Have an idea of making the rear reflectors into working running/brake lights

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Since my fog LED system worked out so well I am thinking of getting a set of 3.5" Red LED Halo lights and install them where the red tail reflectors are. I would just dremel out the necessary hole and leave a perimeter of stock reflector and wire them into the wiring I already have from my hitch...

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Since I've bought my 2010 Soul back in 2009, I have been installing LED's lights here & there..... Recently I found some super small "side" emitting LED's that I was finally able to fit the KIA Souls rear reflectors. I destroyed my original set of reflectors when I tried a couple years ago...

  12. Between The Reflectors Reflectors

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Ever since we've owned the car that strip of honeycomb moulding between the rear reflectors has always annoyed me. Other people have done various treatments there using different materials, but I wanted something that looked kind of factory. Also I wanted something that increased the visibility...
  13. Rear bumper reflectors Mod

    First you need black reflective tape, scissors/razor knife. Pull your reflectors off the car via the 1 screw per reflector. When you get the reflectors off you will see two small screws on the back remove them. Then the reflector will slip out of the holder. Clean the lenses with rubbing...
