Looks good! This is honestly one of the most practical mods out there, should come from the factory like that!

I gotta replace my LED strip in mine. Only a third of the LEDs are working after 2-3 years.

I was curious when putting them in the vent if the heat from the hvac would have any affect on the LED's.

I believe it's just for looks, maybe lets trapped heat from roof and headliner come out there, but I don't think any air actually blows out.

Yeah, probably not a functional vent.

When you cut them to length, do you have to "terminate" the cut? i.e. connect the positive and negative sides to complete the circuit. Or, do they work without doing this? I have LED Wholesalers 16.4 roll P/N 2026WW-31K that I want to use for this application. My first time working with LED flexible strip lights. I'd like to get it right.

These have designated spots to cut them to length.

Thanks for the clarification. Like I said, I'd like to get it right the first time.

I used three 36 LED panels hot glued into the grill areas.
