Default How to Do LED Strip Mod

alright fellas. most of you pm'ed me about this and asked if did a write up for the led strip in my headlights. i also added them on all four doors, trunk, and footwells.

1. youre gonna need to buy and led strip. i got mine on ebay for cheap. paid 15 for 10 leds strips. make sure you get the 9 inch strip or else it wont fit in the side markers

2. youre also gonna need to buy the empty 194 wedge base adapters. they sell them at autoalluminations.com i bought 10 of them for less than 5 bucks

3. your gonna need double sided tape if you dont want to used glue.

here are some pics of what they look like

I want to take apart my headlights, and mess around with puttingthem inside, would you still recommend double sided tape for that?

and is it hard to take your head lights out/apart

The 194 base adapters were found at www.autolumination.com.

I just bought what I need and this is going to be my first mod. Look like fun. Thanks for the post and pics.
