This is what I've been waiting to see, all the lighting I've seen don't hide away the lights and it just looks thrown together. This looks clean. We would all appreciate it if you could give an in-depth description of how it's hooked up. I'm sure it's simple to you but I have almost no electric experience whatsoever Subscribed.

Very cool!! How about some night pictures
I just added 2 long LED strips under my hood, connected to a pin switch. Plenty of light at night!

EDIT - ok, just read your last line I'll wait

Whoahhh guys lol! Im proud of the mod because i bought every piece 1 by 1 at an electronics store knowing exactly what i wanted to do.But electricaly im a dud.I had this all professionaly installed for 30.00$ at `vitro-plus`.
Cost for the leds on ebay 20.00$ (sent 5 soo i have 2 extras left over)
install 30.00$
total of 50.00$
I didnt want to sound like i did all of this because im a total electrical nooblet.
But its straight forward as i watched the guy do it.
Pics up this evening when it gets darker!
(wiring, switches,fuse box all around 1$ each) not even worth mentioning (add-tronique)

This should be moved to the DIY section and titled underhood lighting.

It really looks like it will be cool...
