Default Grille Lighting

Just stepped up my grille lighting a bit...

this is a video of the lights:


the likelihood of me messing with the settings at shows is minimal. But hey, it's good to have the option.

They are just regular LED's sitting in LED holders... pretty basic.

They are mounted a ways away from the fog light bulb, so heat really doesn't get to them.


EDIT:

as you may notice the foglight bulbs are independent from the LED's, there is a switch in the car for the LED's, and obviously the fog lights in the multi-switch.

I was thinking about doing the same thing with my headlights with red LEDs. My only worry is about moisture getting into the housing. I live in Florida, so its pretty likely. Id assume you'd need silicone to seal them properly. Just as a note, I like your grille, maybe you could get a couple more of the lights you used at the top and put them in the lower half.
