This is a continuation of a thread regarding the discussion said LED installation. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=57125
I decided to increase the level of "pimp" my car has through installing some custom made LED arrays under my dash.
I started thinking 3/side would be sufficient, so the guys said I should be aiming for 30+ per side, since I don't have THAT much patience with soldering I aimed for a more reasonable 12/side 2 circuits, each containing 2 sets of 3 LEDs in parallel. My light socket gave 11.4V so that'* what I worked from.
So here'* the beginning of the process. I used 1/4" foam core on which to mount the LEDs and their wiring.
The next 3 LEDs inserted ready to me soldered.
I had to provide a pic of this solder joint cause I was so proud of it, LOL.
So when each strip was complete they looked like this:
And a quick circuit test before installing them:
Now to installing.
I first had to remove the hush panel from under the dash to pull out the 194 bulb socket and tap into the circuit. The socket removed is shown here:
The strips were flush mounted to the hush panels with some double sided adhesive velcro, nothing special there, so no pic.
So here is the (DIRTY) non-pimp floor BEFORE.
NOW, with optimal pimp levels:
And from the backseat:
And note these pics are all taken during BRIGHT sunlight, I'm going to go out again tonight when it gets dark to take some more pics.
Note: In no way do I condone the act of pimping, or even the use of the word "pimp."
If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.
