well in my side of the world right now by the time i get off work its pretty much dark, but i want to go home and eat and all that stuff first so by the time i turn around its really DARK! so i always go to a parking lot to drive at night when im bored.. well the 4tec brought me an idea, underglow! and it works slick and is pretty much unbreakable!! check it out..
first what you will need.
red and black wire.
solder and solder gun
8 LEDS and resistors.
4 clear drinking straws
all of this can be found at radioshack, and i suggest getting everything from there.
first cut the staws down to fit the car, a little shorter than the car its self, you need some room
next your going to a LED in each end of the straw.
then you solder a resistor on the positive wire of each LED (the longest of the 2 wires is the positive)
then solder some red wire to the resistor, and black wire to the other wire on the led.
now set it in the car, and i found just taping the wires down held the light up perfect.. like so
now do the same thing for all 4 tubes.
now when you have all 4 tubes set up and taped up by the wires i took a piece of black tape and taped the top of the tube so it stops the light from going up and reflects it down.
now you should have 4 tubes taped up and a mess of wires like so
now i took all the positive and grouped them together with a twist connector, with one wire comming out to get the power, and did the same thing for the negitives.
now tape all the wires down and run your two wires to the middle of the roof of the car where there is the most room. there your going to put in the 9volt bat.
and viola! underglow, makes it great for night driving, this is VERY bright and shows up very well. and because its on the body it removes just like taking the body off. the pictures dont do this set up justice, its twice as bright and virbant in real life.
its a little bit scetchy i know, if anyone has questions ask away i can take more pics of whatever you have trouble with, if you dont know how to add a switch into that, let me know ill gladley show some more detail.
ill be doing this one more with a white set up on a camaro body, ill take lots of pics and give a few more details if anyone is still scetchy on any thing! ask questions! i doubt there isnt a question i cant answer for you.
