Default My Buick Century LED headlight accent mod

So I finally got around to doing this. I'm thinking of making a how-to thread if anyone is interested. This is the first mod I've ever done. What do you guys think?

I'd like more details on how you mounted it etc. I was aiming to do this or halos in the Regal. Since I have projectors in it..I'm not sure which way I'll go, but moving the DRL from the inner light to the halo/strip would be near.

I would like to se a how-to write up, primarily because I want to know how to get at the inside of the lenses on my Bonneville. They are getting foggy, and when I wet sanded them last summer I found most of the surface defects are on the inside of the lenses.

looks good! Did you route a switch to your interior so you can turn it on and off at will, or is it wired into your headlight assembly somehow?

It'* wired into the parking lights / turn signals, so whenever the parking lights or headlights are on the LEDs are also on. If you wire it properly it won't flash with the turn signal.
