Plasti-Dip super cheap interior lighting

Hey,

I recently got myself a 2011 Camaro !!!!

I want to do a few light mods to begin with and I have heard a few interesting things about this plastidip stuff.

http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...&storeId=10051

I have a few questions though before I attempt anything.

After reading the labels for this stuff at the home depot I got scared off as it came off as EXTREMELY toxic. I am just curious now, does this stuff remain toxic after it drys?? Or is it just like that when wet and drying? I mean who here has used it and how did you like it? How did you find it to work quality wise? How does it last for you??
I mean I know its toxic so if I decide to use it I will wear a respirator etc in a well ventilated area. But my main concern is, is this stuff toxic after it drys on your car?? I don't want to be creating a toxic environment on my car. Will this stuff still be poisonous to the touch after it drys??

Also would you recommend this stuff? I am mainly thinking of doing the wheels black, and white stripes bumble bee style on the car sort of like this:

I want to plasti dip stripes like that onto my car in white though.

So i am just wondering any tips or tricks I should be aware of that people have used? Or any hints I should know about before I attempt this project? Any help at all would be amazing!!

Second order of business I saw these interior lights on eBay:

Any reviews on them from people on here? Are they worth it? Decent? Is it a stupid idea to get them? Would you suggest getting them as a temporary mod? I want them because they require little commitment as I can just unplug them and take them out if I do not like them anymore!
But I mean, are they a good idea? Would people on here suggest them as useful?

I am deciding between these two:

1.) http://www.ebay.com/itm/4x-3-LEDs-Ca...9a849d&vxp=mtr

2.) http://www.ebay.com/itm/4x-Blue-LED-...268cab&vxp=mtr

I am basically deciding between getting 2-3 of one of those and just laying them out in the car. Wires would not be a problem as they are easily hidden under floor mats and seats. But would people suggest them as a good idea? and worth the price??

Thank you to anyone who helps!!!!!
