Step 1:
You will need to make some sort of stencil for your sidemarkers. I have taken the measurements from mine and drawn them up(as seen below) or you could measure for yourself.

Step 2:
Now we will start masking off the area where we will begin cutting. You want to make the top of the side marker hole about 18mm below the body line…

So i would suggest, as I did, measure 18mm from the top of your cardboard and start your stencil there, that way you can use the top of the stencil as your guide for the body line. (Be sure that the stencil is made so the clip toward the rear of the car.)
Place first piece of masking tape here…

Then copy the stencil onto the fender with a dry erase marker to mask off the rest of the area. like so…

(My looks a little different from the measurements above because i wasnt sure exactly where cut for the clip.)
Repeat on opposite side of car.

Step 3:
Once both side of the car are masked, its time to Measure Measure and Measure some more to make sure that all the dimensions in the tape border are correct. Now we can start cutting away. Start by cutting a square then start on the clip area, occasionally making sure that it isnt to big.Once it goes in stop cutting…Make sure your wearing your safety glasses!

***REMEMBER WHILE CUTTING TO MAKE SURE THAT THE SIDEMARKER IS FITTING NICELY. IF IT GOES IN STOP CUTTING. IT IS VERY EASY TO CUT TOO MUCH.***

Step 5:
Now that the hole has been cut to size and the sidemarker fits snug, lightly file down the edges. Then cover the rest of the fender and door area to prepare for paint. Once the paint has dried you can remove all tape and check out the finished hole…

Step 6:
Next we will begin wiring the lights. Jack the car up and remove the fender well. Get your harness and plug it into the side marker, running the rest of the wire up to the front of the car. Remove the bumper lights and cut the GREEN and BLACK wires(Sidemarker will only flash with turn signal as the JDM ones only flash) as shown below. Using the connectors, splice into the factory wires and connect the wiring harness, test, then shrink wrap.
