I have been trying to figure out a way to hold my power and ground wires to my speaker box with out it looking tacky. I think I found the way. A LED Black Widow emblem.
I am using 3/8" plexi glass, black plasti-dip. and 1 1/2" of LED strip from Autozone.
Started out with a sheet of plexi
I cut out the black widow emblem using a scroll saw. Here it is next to another emblem like the center console, for size comparison.
And with the light underneath.
The final version will have a plasti-dip emblem in the center so only a small amount of plexi will be seen. A trough will be milled underneath with 3 LED lights tucked up in. Not sure how the wiring will work yet.
Here is a better mock up
Basement paint shop! Lots and Lots of plasti-dip.
Sorry for the LONG LONG LONG delay. The plasti dip didnt work and I was pretty busy last week. I finally got around to repainting the emblem. Used Gloss Black Acrylic paint. 3 coats to cover up the LED lights.
And a general overview of the trunk
