If I were to do anything, I would have to go with sticking them on the chrome under the headlights, on the bumper. Don't know where I would end it though.

i had an idea of putting LEDs on top of my fog lights, theres a little trim there that i think it would look nice

but again too much work for something not worth it

Halo rings, audi LED to me its all rice. why are you trying to make your Bonneville look like an Audi or a BMW? not my cup of tea
I did it because it'* something not seen on Bonnevilles. I've been called "rice" by a few people for it. I don't really care. If I stop liking the look of it, I'll disconnect them.

I was thinking about it, too, but if I did it, I'd hook it into the DRL'*. Basically, instead of running the headlights at 80% power during the day, I'd get the strips/eyes. Haven't quite figured out that one yet.

I have had the LED strips running on my car for about 9 months now, and have YET to be called rice for it...except for Sam on here! I always get tons of compliments on it and always see people turning there heads to catch a glance. The best is when someone passes me on the highway and just stall for a bit wondering what kind of car it is. The real curious ones roll the window down and ask since all my badges are removed!!! haha

I also have mine running through a switch in the cab, so all it takes is a flip of the switch and there off...best of both worlds!

many things on today'* cars are not seen on Bonnevilles, if you wanna start modding this way you'll never end.
