and before anybody tries to throw legality into the mix,
according to TXDOT, headlights cannot be RED OR BLUE. that is the only limitation and i know i do not get the same amount of visible light compared to 6000k, but i like it and i get lots of compliments.

and as far as the "momentary off" switch,
it might be needed to wire this backwards, i don't quit remember, so then when the switch is release (pressure taken off of it) it activates and turns on the leds.

I have been to Alaska. My gf's dad lived in alaska for 4 years and he drove his ranger with 320 k on it all the way from Alaska to here in KY. lol He had to take a ferry of course. The ranger was an 80s. I would still like to do that though! Oh and where you live is very nice looking! I wish we had more snow this year.

Awesome setup Svvift. Those subs put my little 10" to shame. lol

Where do you get your interior LED's, are they just ebay stuff or have you found a better source? I'm a little hesitant to buy them off ebay and then have them crap out after a few months.

i got them from a local place. its called Electronic Parts Outlet (EPO)
there are like 4 dollars a piece and come as 3-led bricks and they are waterproof.

they come in red, blue, green, amber and white, i think
i would be more than happy to pick some up for you if you want.

Underglow baby.

I'm tempted to get some on my car but I'm too afraid I'd break them under there with all the stuff I run into.

That's tempting. I may have to take you up on that offer when I figure out what I want.

i will take some pics of the leds themselves so you can see them for reference.
just let me know.

and if you want underglow, with minimal clearance, these bricks are awesome.
a fellow FF member, and member of my crew, are going to be building our own underglows for our car. we will more than likely be doing a how-to with it too.
