Hi Guys & Gals,

The tools I used were:
13mm sockets, 3/8 ratchet, 1/4 inch ratchet, a 1/4 inch driver and a 13mm spanner.

For this job you are going to need some...

Be warned, these LEDs are bright, very high colour temperature, and gives a totally new look to the interior at night. If bright and white is not your thing, stay away from the white LEDs!
Otherwise, have a look at this photoset.
