How To Intsall "Gumball" Sidemarkers Winkers

Postby Mako » February 27th, 2013, 4:44 pm

I've been riding around with my gumballs installed for about a month now and have had no problems with them. I took measurements from brochures and magazines by finding exact side views and blowing up the pictures in Photoshop to match the height of the side trim then measuring from trim to gumball then door jam/fender edge to gumball. These are as close as I could get it and have worked for me just fine and I have had thumbs up from other people in the community. If you would like exact to the mm then please feel free to order a fender from overseas and send me the measurements.

Other than that lets start.

First download this PDF:
https://www.facebook.com/download/53761 ... rs.pdf.zip - Which is posted in Vintage Integra Club on Facebook. Its an open group: please join first then click the link.

Image

Once downloaded print it out on an 8x11 sheet of paper (US size) without any resizing or borders. There are also instructions in the PDF.

Then match up the template for the driver and passenger side to the door jam/fender edge and trim.

Tape to fender.

Take a pointed punch or nail and ever so slightly hammer and indention into the center of the circle on the template.

Take a 15/16th US standard drill bit and drill slowly and/or even in reverse through the circle on the template. Remember the sheet metal is very thin. Do not let it bind or you will be sorry. After I got the drills tip through I drilled backwards.

Next take your Dremel and cut slightly on the outside of the lines on the rest of the design.

Image

Now for test fit: Take your gumball and put the top of the marker with the little plastic tongue in first and then the bottom metal clip last. If it is too tight of a fit, ever so slightly trim the sides of the design until it pops in w/ a little force... a little.

Congratulations, you now have side markers installed!!

Nice "How to"!

I've always loved the look of these older side markers.
Wonder how they would look on later model Hondas'.
May have to find a set and loosely mock them up someday.

The stock and correct way is have them stay off and only come on as a flasher with the turn indicator blinker. The orange lights being steady on mite not be legal in some states as well.

It always bugs me when I see people wire them up with parking lights. As far as legality, it may be, But I doubt it, as there are a few Subaru models from the 90's that have sidemarkers, and they're ran off the parking lights. Although, who knows. They may be sticklers about it because it didn't come like that in the u.s.
