Arrived today thanks Craig. Much appreciated. Will be fitting them sometime in the next couple of days, unfortunately work gets in the way lol.

One quick question to those who have fitted them , do the Perspex surfaces get scratched with use? I'm presuming the one rubber insert I currently have is discarded once they're fitted as it would cove them up completely !

Cheers

Now my car is back and I'm home, haven't had time to install them 100% but I have connected them to a 12v supply going to the vehicle lights, they look great BUT..........

If I have them set to for example green, when I dim the vehicle lights from the stalk, the LEDs dim , then change colour in the case of green, to blue.

What's causing this ( is it the reduced current almost replicating the control module ? ) more to the point is there any way around it ?

Not a moan, very interesting lol.

I do know the controller doesn't like running off the existing lighting. That's why I've been recommending just tapping into a regular 12v source. If you do want them to turn on with the lights, the best way around that is use a relay or do this...

That should fix the issue.

Yes I was heading off down the relay route, got loads of the things laying around , I was more intrigued why it does it

Yeah, the why is a good question. I've no idea. Standard LED's don't have an issue. It's only when using the controller with RGB LED's. We've speculated that it's likely an issue with current draw, as voltage tests fine. It's not an issue with amperage at the fuse either. It's got to be some unseen circuitry after that.

Haha, indeed. Although unfortunately I know a few people who would do the same. Needless to say I avoid them whenever possible, especially in confined spaces...

A little progress tonight guys! However, I'm not happy yet. Would you believe that there is 4 layers of Plasti Dip on the ring? There is still a little light bleed. Simply adding more layers of PD isn't a good option. So, tomorrow I'll try a single bottom layer of regular spray paint, and then a layer of PD. I think that will give me exactly what I'm looking for. Thoughts?
