LED - Under the hood lighting
 
Has anyone installed or had installed any LED underhood lighting? If so where did you have it done and do you like it? I am looking for recommendations etc. I am looking into perhaps having it done so I am beginning to dig for info.

Thanks!

:thumbsup:

Yea I have lights in my grill area. I installed it all myself, which was really easy. I obtained all my LED lights from SJMAUTOPROD. He is a vendor here on C5. His customer service is the best hands down. He helped me on a sunday and even gave me his personal number in case I had any more questions. Let me know more specifically what you want and maybe I can help further.

i saw a cat at c5fest3 who had every inch it seemed...of his engine compartment lit with LEDs...in a mind boggling pattern too...

pretty sure he won the Oracle LED award...

inspired me to put that on my Mod list

SJMAutoprod sells LED lights that replace the retaining clips for the hood liner. I have pics of them in my build thread.

How'd you do your lights in the 6 little sections on the engine cover? Does it have a diffuser on are there just a few LEDs popping out of it?

Dremel the ports open, install 2 single leds in each port.

I got LEDGlow underhood led lights. They aren't as bright as I would like.
I finally moved them to the front grill area, but had to remove them when I got my car in Va. Cause they had gotten turned on and I couldn't turn them off with the remote.

I am trying to decide if I want to re install or get something brighter. They are mulit color lights, that flash and all that. But its hard to see unless its night time.

Here is a video of when I first installed them. Some in the engine bay and some in the front grill. (( The video is pretty dark, used a phone camera))

And here is a link to my car's facebook page that has some picks of when I moved all the lights into the front grill.
