Who doesn't want a cool charge port light on their Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV?

This a great looking modification which is relatively easy to make up and won't invalidate your warranty.

Once you have all three components in hand carefully cut up the T10 LED and solder the Halo wires to the remaining plug. Suggest you use some heat shrink to secure and isolate the connecting wires. You will then up with an assembly similar to the below. Adhere the Halo ring to your printed Warp Core ring using a little hot glue.

Retrieve the standard charge port light and disconnect the cable. Connect the cable up to the new Halo ring and feed the cable back into the charge light hole. You may find a better way of routing the cable but this will depend on your preferences. This mod is 100% reversible as is.
