There is a pass-through on the driver's side where the fuses and harnesses run. Its right behind the interior fuse box.

it passes through right behind the driver's side strut, so if you've got skinny arms it shouldn't be a problem to reach.

Appreciate that. Now I have a couple choices to run the wire through.

Thanks.

Can only work for a little bit at a time because off the heat but I manages to get all the wires together and ground the black wires to the frame and drilled a hole through the place where the clutch would have fit. Easier than I thought as you can actually see where it comes out from the engine compartment. Put the two ends of the hot wires together into one long wire and passed that thought to the inside of the car right next to the fuse box. Quit there as it's already about 92 degrees and the car was in the sun. Next step is to attach the hot wire to either the running light fuse or the fog light fuse depending on when I want the LED's to light up. Decided not to use an ignition fuse so the LED's are on all the time. That was my original intention but changed my mind.

Might just pull the car into the garage and finish up today to get it done. If I do, I'll have pictures up later.

OK, finished. had to connect them to a spare fuse that comes on with the ignition so they will be on anytime the ignition is on, like DRL's. Really bright outside the garage so I'll have to take a couple other shots at dusk or at night.

7:50pm here. Still dusk. Will wait till dark and post again.

Hard to get at night with other lights. Looks like LED's reflect off lower bumper making two rows.

I'm really caught in the middle with this. One minute I love it, the next I don't. It's definitely new and creative, so good for you. If I were to do it, I'd keep the LED simply under the headlights, rather than the grill. At least, I think I would.
How hard was it to do?
