Default Headlight Mod

Put a 24 inch strip of LEDs in both of my headlights (was not easy). Ended up taking a lot longer to do than I anticipated, but I'm really happy with the way they turned out.

I'll try to post some better photos tomorrow night when I can use my girlfriend's camera if you guys are interested.

The LEDs are actually pointed toward the car so that they would reflect off of the chrome giving it that glow effect. (attached them to the inside of the lens with two sided tape).

I actually didn't. I used two coat hangers and managed to get them in there through the light bulb holes. (Took about three hours to get them where I wanted because of the tape on them). I drilled a small hole for the wires to come out of and once I pulled the wires through I siliconed the hole shut.
