Vent LEDs

I plan to do this and I am going ot put blue LED's inside the vents....the only thing I dont know is how to wire the LED. I can mount it and all, no problem, but if I have 4 LED's run by a 12v power source with a switch how do I wire it up? and what side of the LED is positive or negative?

if that doesn't work, go here and click "Show Google's cache of www.ecotack.co.uk/led_calc.asp"

http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...d%5Fcalc%2Easp

but you need the info such as max input voltage and current draw. also, voltage may be up to 14.4V at times unless it's a regualted 12V source. but if you figure it for 12V and it's getting 14.4V at times, you are decreasing the life by a pretty good amount.
