roger at emblempros and I , threw around a few ideas
. i already had my sills doors lighted as you can see below, but the "Chevrolet" wasnt doing so well anymore, i liked emblempros lighted door sill but i wanted to use mine as i will be rewiring the whole car with RGB leds, so i wanted my door sills to change colors. i will be doing that next week. but anyway, got the doors sills in today and WOW, awesome, got them installed real quick, here is a quick peek
since the leds are down about 1 inch the lighted letters have a real depth to them when you see them in person.
you have to go to the end of the 1st post
more pics added to post #17
ok, messing around again. got all these bright ideas swirling in my weird head
, i know one day their gonna bite me in the butt, but here you go.
1. purchased led lights from autozone, used a 12 inch and about 4 inches off another one, i cut them to fill the full channel i made.
2. purchased plexiglass from home depot.
3. cut out the letters from door sill with a razor and straight edge.
4. purchased roof edging from home depot.
5. going to wire into my footwell light, to come on at the same time
below is the flashing i purchase from home depot
below is flashing cut to size, i put both pieces together, i held them together with 3m electrical tape. i set them to mark out the area to cut.
below is the outline area to cut.
below is the door sill with the letters already cut, i originally thought it was thin metal
, but its thin plastic material, very flimsy. what you do not see is the plexiglass i already cut it to the shape of the door sill. this give it some strength(just enough), i have it sitting on the channel with the lights installed in the channel, this is the test.
this is the channel with the LED's.
man, this looks better than i thought
now that i like the look, time to cut
now that the hole is cut, i fit the channel and do some final filing.
intall channel and test lights. i also had to drill a hole to pull the wire thought and run wires along the door jamb, i dont have a pic of that right now , i will try to post one later tonight.
