The colour of the cathodes is quite a bit lighter than the LEDs, but that'* too late now anyways, but they'll never be both seen at the same time anyways (except of course in these pics, but this is a special situation, not reality).

OK, here we are:








OK! I'm seriously done now, there'* no area left to conquer.

LOL, I'm never going to physically mod the outside of the car, especially lighting wise, I'm WAYYYY too close to being rice as it is right now.

The ONLY thing I would maybe possibly consider is white LEDs in the map lights to improve the colour.

Thanks for the support!

Very, very cool. I was wanting to do this with green. Maybe now I'll have to since I see how nice it looks. Don't know much about led'* but I know wiring in general so it shouldn't be that bad.
Any advice?

If you don't already have the LEDs, buy cathodes, or LED strips premade for under the dash! Unless you enjoy manufacturing the parts like I did. I made them since I already had all the parts laying around and didn't want to buy anything additional.

But for in the doors you really have to manufacture the custom panels and stuff yourself for the best result.

If you have any LED specific questions or anything, feel free to email/PM me, there'* of course TONS of info in the old google too.

Green is a colour I considered, but of course I only had blue, orange and white LEDs in stock, so I had limited choices.
