Default Project LEDs Complete & Other Neat Pics

So my industrious (some would say ghetto) LED project has come to completion (I think!)

This is not a continuation of my previous thread since the project is now "complete" you can catch up here: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...er=asc&start=0 if you don't know the beginnings of this.

Note: These pics are inspired by the person (sry I don't recall who) who had the ladybug pictures attacking their car, well I had a grasshopper attack our G35 today!



I love these 2, sunset + stable + omg I washed my car!



The sunset finishing:


So onto LEDs, here'* it finished, looking from the outside:


Driver'* side:


From behind the car:


(I gotta get a night pic with both doors open, maybe tomorrow I'll drive to somewhere I have enough room to take that kinda pic!)

Backseat is what I added today to complete the project:


Fin:


Note: I also vaccuumed my carpet today!!! So it'* all nice and shiny (yes, the carpet is shiny now...), tomorrow I'm going to get out a bucket of soap and water and clean inside all the door trims, they haven't been done for a while.

I've been on the fence about those, if I do them, I'll be using some 5mm pure white LEDs, not blue.

The fact they're yellow-ish has been bugging me, it doesn't work well with the blue.

I just don't know how to get those lights out, so I haven't tried yet. Anyone got any tips on taking all those lights out?

Thanks!

Wow, what kind of camera do you have? You're using a tri-pod right?

Excellent pics!

Rebel XT, and no tripods, they're for wussies :P, most of those pics are taken with a 75-300mm optically stabilized lens, so there'* no need for a tripod!!! Yay technology! Plus I always kick it up to 1600ISO for the night pics, so exposure times only need to be like 1/3s, which I can hold sufficiently still for with my 18-55mm non-stabilized lens.

On one side of the lense there is a tiny area where you can fit a screwdriver. Just push one in there, and push it towards the lense and the lense comes right out. Doesn't take much force to do.

You have a great gooking B-ville I must say
