I have been playing again with the LED's

(after a Little fire :eek: caused by a faulty switch I think)

Ended up with this. Mounted hidden away in the Lower grill, almost full width.

There will be Three rows, but it started raining so only fitted one so far :D

They are actually Blue LED's but dont look it in the video.

you turning the van into KITT

looks sweet but careful with the fuzz as they won't be happy with you having any blue off the front of the van

I put the switch under the bonnet so I'm not tempted :D
and the strips are black so wont reflect blue either T:

Just another little helping hand for me to find the van late at night at Shows this year LOL:

Blue forward facing lights - especially ones that catch the eye like that - are going to be a magnet for the Police............

Looks good - but I would have gone with a different colour to avoid the grief......... :)

There are two strips in the set that are wired to a single control box

I am presuming they are waterproof but they came with no packaging so time will tell on that one I suppose :D
