: Footwell LEDs
02-29-2008, 11:08 PM
So i've decided to put footwell LEDs in my car. I'm planning to buy some from this website http://www.oznium.com/led-flex-strips. Does anyone know any others that are better or cheaper? Do you have any pictures? Any help would be appreciated.

looks kinda like what my sisters BF got me to make my under body kit... its really nice stuff, SUPER bright.... im not sure where he got them though but they are in 16 inch strips... good luck, they should be fine...

you can't go wrong with oznium best leds on the market in my opinion and cheap prices too!!!

those will work, you can also use LED pods or cold cathodes for the same thing

I like the LED pods made by StreetGlow/Optx. You can get them at Advanced Auto.

i would lean away from the led Cathode style that oznium has, if anything do the ones your looking at... the led Cathode things have a really short life atleast in blue... ive replaced my blues almost 8 times, but the red i accidentally got have been in almost a year so who knows...

Just buy neon tube lights and mount them under your dash... That's what I did. I've had the same two red lights for years. I've got a outlet adapter thing that allows me to plug in four things, instead of just one. So I can hook up the two lights. Bright, cheap($20), and last a long time...

neon is a thing of the past IMO...although, if ur referring to cold cathodes which are sometimes mislabled as neon, i would agree

I don't know if they're neons or cold cathodes. I just know I've had them for years, and have transferred them from my past three vehicles. First an Explorer, then a Mustang, now the Focus. They just plug right into a AC outlet. Good little lights. Like I said, I've had them for years, and I've had many compliments on them. In fact, I think I may get some for the rear footwells. But, then again, I don't have people ride in the back that often...

I have cathodes, and am getting ready to switch to LEDs... both i got from OZNIUM... which is a great place to buy this stuff btw...
Problem with blue cathodes... they look almost purple... if you did blue LEDs in your car (ie swapped out the greens for blue with HVAC, radio, ect) the blue cathodes wont match at all... they put off a nice light, but the they are almost purple...

If your going to get anything, do it right and hardwire them. No one likes to see wires hanging out of your power outlet.

^^haha, that and car electronics are usually DC unless hooked to a power inverter for house electronics...
i might switch to LEDs some time just because the passenger footwell cathode has been kicked and shattered 3 times now *sigh*

My buddy has those flexible lights and he loves them. I wish that's what I got.

R3d_RovrZX3, I didn't even catch that ac / dc thing. lol

AC is the superior form.

Random thread resurrection for that?
