LED Projects... Show them off.

After replacing the dash lights in the Jeep to LED, I have a growing interest in LED projects, building from the ground up, figuring the circuit load, number of LED that can be used with the available power source, and other details.

I would like to know if you have an interest in this little hobby and if so, would you show off some of your projects?

I've just ordered various LED, resistors, etc. but would like to see what others have done.

Post em up!

^u can see them through the window

i know these arnt leds, but figured id show off my other pretty blue lights

the pics distort the leds a little bit but theyr all vivid deep blue (except the 3 red switches on my center console), and are very bright.

i never got my order for leds for the front overhead console, and the trunk light... gotta give them hell about that.

Old school:





Never got a finished picture of the center console LEDs, The plastic cover was tinted green so much that I had to use around 12 red LEDs to make it shine through. The knobs got pretty damn hot if I had the lights on for awhile.

Thanks for sharing guys.. I know there are more. Doesn't have to be in your auto. Any LED project you've done.

Red is parking brake, blue is high beams, and then there's two greens, one for each blinker.

Two red for brake and two white for turn in each pass footpeg bracket. Also stuck some white ones in the plate bolts so i could lose the clunky plate light.
