My attempt to be creative- Led Grill etc

Heres a vid of my custom led install in my kidney grills. it consists of 8 total red led's, one in each corner, tied into my interior lights circuit. This way they come on when you lock/ unlock your car. I kinda think this is a neat mod. Pretty clean. I still wanna find a way to make the actual bulbs a little less noticable though. They kinda stick out in the day when u light them up. However at night the light blocks them out and the grills glow nicely






And then this video is of my Oh-Sh!t handles. Same basic concept. Tied into the interior lights circuit, and not to noticable. Just gives a nice "mood" effect. Oh and i changed out all the normal interior halogens with red leds.




Almost makes my car look demonic at night. lol.

Looks cool and well done, although I wouldn't do it on my ride...

I was always thinking of installing blue LED strobes into the grill and a killswitch, so when I'm on the autobahn and someone gets in my way, it'd look like I'm a cop chasing someone

I like it. I wonder what it would look like with halos. Personally I think it would be too busy. The red is cool!

Thanks for the feedback..

I went with red just because my car is sienna red w/ black wheels and smoked turn signals etc etc.. kinda goin for the blacked out theme and i thought the white might kinda kill that a little.
