Hey Irv... Great job with the markers and bulbs.... Glad i was able to get u most of the parts... I think the combination of markers and bulbs we use, seem to work the best.....!!!!

Also, for anyone who experiences condensation in cold weather or any weather, it is most likely do to water getting in the marker from rain or when you wash your car... To fix, buy a tube of silicone sealant, remove markers, then with your finger run a nice even layer on back side of markers where the lens meets with the housing... Let it dry good, then re-install markers...
Thanks Joe. Thanks for the lenses.. :) One more thing, sometimes a leak forms between the marker housing and the bulb harness (er?) so a new washer might help.

Quick fix for that.... Just cut a hole into the black rubber/plastic harness cover right at the point where the water collects... So when you wash your car or it rains and water finds its way in there, it will not collect, but rather drain out.....

Sweet. I don't know about you, but when I unplugged my front sidemarker bulbs a bunch of water ran out from the sheath surrounding the wires that ran into the connector... weird.

ltunedgirl, thanks for the compliments... the snow in Canada is beautiful (espescially for skiing), but it's just so freakin cold overhere!!

Joe Z, thanks for all the recommendations... very professionnal!! I did sealed the housing (before installation) with 2 layers of clear silicone, along with all the sockets... but I still have a lil condensation on the lenses at night when my lights are on for a long period of time... I guess, it's just the heat from the bulb...

it is just the stock nav unit.

It is just the stock nav housing and buttons and wiring and a 7" screen replaces the stock screen.

not sure where the pics are but do a search for nav housing in mobiletronics.
