    Default should I or shouldn't I?

    i was a bit bored today so i've decided to use some led stripes which i dont need.
    i've put them in rear left light to see what would they look like, and i must say that it isn't that bad..
    the pics are very poor, it was raining and they were taken with a phone, i was too lazy to go and get my slr..

    anyway, what do you guys think, should I do whole light with leds on both sides like i did this one? or it looks tacky and i should better give up?


    comments are very welcome

    cheers robbie, i used red smd led stripes, they can be bought on ebay for about 100euro per 5 meters..
    i think i'm going to need almost 10m if i plan to do whole light with them, including repeaters and fog lights, they are really brighter and much better than normal bulbs!
    total cost might exceed 200 euro, not a cheapie lol

    cut the stripes on the length you need and try to somehow align them through the little hole predicted for bulb.. wire them on sockets for bulbs, eg repeaters on repeater bulb socket etc..

    the best of all is that i didn't get the dead bulb warning in dash!

    i'll see if i will be able to take the light apart, as that would make the job a lot easier and it would allow me to perfectly do it as I want, wiring and positioning wouldn't be a problem at all...
