hkysk8r07 you could probably use some chrome vinyl too inside the vents

maul ok cool, i'll get the hyperled's then. too bad they dont have yellow on ebay. i wonder if i should go with blue, or orange.

focus4dr Dude, how come you didn't put 2 LED's in each vent? then you wouldn't have had the reflective problem that you had with the flaps (only half of the vent lighting up)... would you? Thats a pretty cool mod, and I think I will do it when I get back home... tho I will use green.

Foci_Fosho dude, mine cost exactly 50 times more...
those are just normal LED's that light up... i paid $4 each for hyperled's and they come wired with a resistor and 3 feet of wire... it's more than like 20 times brighter than that tiny LED.

also that one is rated at 2 volts so you have to find one hell of a high resistance Ohm Resistor.

mine run 9-16 volts DC... (standard car battery rating).... it wont blow out.

maul what kind of LEDS did you use?

these ok?

zummracer that looks really nice.

steedazx5 you think like mirrored craft paper would do good?
09-27-2004 01:25 PM
ceejbay thats one way to go about it, but i highly recommend the chrome paint (sand the insides of the vents a little first!) over foil, it just looks more professional in my opinion, foil looks a little half-assed

thats what i did for the toggle switch for when i had my system in looks good and hides it.

anyone got like a step by step with pics for retards on this like a web site i reall y wanna do this soon.
