I wanted to follow up with my roof rack and lighting system pictures.
I have a TYGER roof cargo basket and a Thule rooftop box, both of which have fixed lighting.
I installed wiring inside my driver side roof rail, and down the windshield trim strip into the engine bay. The wiring exits the roof rail just rear of the front crossbar, and terminates in a SAE connector.
Each of my roof cargo attachments has wiring terminating in another SAE connector. All lighting is on relays, with switches left of the steering column.

Im up in the PNW. I flyfish 50+ days a year. I frequent the logging roads between here and Montana.
The added lighting really helps with vis at night. If the border was open, Id be up north quite a bit this time of year.
Pontoon and frame fit in my trunk and take the majority of the space. Camping gear, fuel, etc., get strapped up top.

I did two quick projects today.

First was installing the factory splash guards 08P00-TG7-100A


Second was to install the factory cross bars 08L04-TG7-100


Next up will be some lighting updates. I am going to replace some of the factory incandescent bulbs with some LED bulbs from Lasfit (turn signal) and Yorkim (Interior dome and vanity mirror).

Thanks for the recommendation. I will take a look. With the 21 Elite, I am trying to match to the blue ambient lighting in the Pilot. That is why, I have taken a look at Yorkim, since the Ice Blue looks to be a good match. I am trying to avoid a overly harsh white LED look. I will post up photos once I get the lighting figured out and installed.

With the lights on, of course.

Installed the S-VCM today. Very pleased with the ease of installation.

The car actually coasts like it should! I didn’t think it would make a huge difference, but it’s significant.
It's amazing how many people say the same thing. Glad you are enjoying your 6 cylinder 100% of the time Pilot!
