http://www.focushacks.com/index.php?modid=34 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

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.

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.

you could probably use some chrome vinyl too inside the vents
