Default New LED running lights installation

Saw different installs of LED running lights on cars and thought I would try and install a set on my Cruiszr. He is what I've decided to do:


Hanging wires are temperary power supply cords to check installation.

Would you say this is a keeper or not?

Looks promising.
How about a full frontal shot?

Be happy to once I get it off the jack stands and move it outside. Not enough room in the garage to get full frontal view. Got a few more things to do before I can get the wheels back on and off the jack stands.

Cruiszr,
looking good! However I would gone with the 3/4 circle look for a more aggressive look, but that's just my taste. Your idea is also promising.

Thanks for the suggestion, don't know if I can cut the lights any shorter with out damaging them and keeping them waterproof as well.

You SHOULD BE able to cut after every third LED. I would have to see a picture of the strip. Also if you cut shorter, all I do is put some rtv silicone on the cut end and let it dry. Then a little shrink wrap over the cut end for better measures. I also put rtv over the wire connections, as I've never come across any that did this already.

Rather than risking screwing up the led's by trying to change their length I've decided to leave them alone. When viewing them while standing you can't see the top of the running light anyway. Thanks for the tip though it may come in handy on another project.

Good deal. Anything I can be of help on just let me know.

PS, keep an eye on my name. If everything goes right this ISNT the only mod you'll want to do. Lol

Finally got car off jack stands and back outside for a good cleaning and a few photos. Here is a full front view with the new LED running lights turn on:
