Power

I found a wire around the fuse block that is hot when the eng. is on and installed a relay to control LEDs
This the LEDs I used after I painted them black.

The Mod took about 4 hrs. the hard part was removing grill

I did the exactly same thing but had little luck to find the good power source for it. Can you show some pics, please ?

Do you have a pic of the back of the light housing? I was thinking of just mounting larger LED's to it and wiring it that way.

Not sure I understand, the head light extention is enclosed. That why I cut a hole and inserted the LED strip in thru the hole inside the encloser.

And it's quite tight when you use a flat strip of LED, right ?
I have the exactly same setup as you.
