The idea was to have the glowing red take place of the running lights.

Well I took out the tail light, cut it open, removed the factory diffuser and put in mine. It looked pretty sick, see pic below. But honestly it wasn't up to my standards of a "factory" look. The symbol didn't take up the entire space, to narrow, and the chrome was showing from behind. Even if I painted the inside black so the head floated it still looked off. Let alone how hot the factory bulbs get and what havoc they could play on LED's. And the factory bulbs show orange, never noticed before.

So I ended up lighting the front of my stereo system. Showing off the 1 Ohm stable Amp, 0 gauge wire and 2 Farad Capacitor. I had bought some very bright cool white LED's for this project and used just 6 to get the effect you see below. See, I can do subtle!!! No video needed, pretty simple little job. Once before I had a spare Knight Rider light above the system, but it was always on and to bright. I think this makes the statement I wanted Oh, I still have one amber Head left... Hmmmm, ideas?
HI,

Can you provide the links where you brought these LED's?

Just what have I been doing???

If you've followed my thread over the years you know by now I'm quite insane

Since I'm done with El Diablo, my Camaro, I decided to create an entire car. Yup, make a car. Do everything my self. Rebuild it, fix it up and then transform it into something totally new. The Camaro was my inspiration but time will show I went for something completely unique

For know just one teaser photo and some hints. First, it's the car in the background. Second, it has 233,3xx miles. Finally, its a (gulp) FORD!!! Ahhhh, hahahahaha

Some have heard about it some call it "the abomination" I call it The Tamaro!!!

(As always negative opinions only show the person's own insecurities)
