We could help you out with LED's, too. Find out what you have and we can go from there.

I have a 1.5W spot that is really bright for lighting up the hood-pad bow tie (it's mounted to a bracket with magnets and attaches to the "frame" just above the driver-side headlight). I also have 3, 5, 10W and up...

Let me talk to Third Gen and I'll let you know. Could you give me some more info on these spot lights you're talking about. For engine bay lighting I'm currently using the LEDs that are mounted to the hood pad push pins (got them from you) and they could be brighter to be honest.

Yes, those are really just accent lights.

Here is the 1.5W spot itself...

Are they bright enough though? I just can't really imagine 1.5 watts putting out that much light.

That one is 70 lumens. The 3w is 180, 5w is 400, Obviously, the more wattage, the bigger the part.

I mean not like "stupid" bright - but bright enough where I can accent the whole engine bay. I mean I realize that these shine up to the bowtie, so they don't need to be that bright - but the accent LEDs in the hood blanket could be a little brighter yea

OK, so, you just mean brighter down-lights? I thought you were talking about the gobos still.

I mean it'd be nice if the down-lights were brighter yea, but I also want my door projectors to be brighter.

In case it's still relevant, here is a couple phone pics of the hood pad illuminated by that 1.5W spot...





A more central location would be better, but, my Vararam eats that up.

I've been working on new down-lights for a bit now, but, orders and the tails have back-burnered that.
