I'm going to do some underbody lights on my Dodge Ram 2500 van for the led contest.

If you are going to do LEDs check out this site I used for my interior lights Oznium.
I was going to to make them myself.

I was expecting you to, they also have single LEDs you can buy in bulk along with transistors or buy prewired led strips (waterproof). If you are going to do underbody I would suggest prewired strips that are waterproof. If they aren't waterproof then they may short out and all your trouble would be for nothing. Or by "make" did you mean you were going to create the individual LEDs from scratch?
I use leds I got from a stoplight, formica for boards, and then I'm sealing them (make plastic cases). You'll see soon enough.

Silicone sealant will easily seal them up while letting light out, it may be easier than creating a case for them.

Do I hear: Clear hot glue ? :-)
i can never find clear drying hot glue, its always whitish grey but semi translucent. but its only .99 for a stick...

If you use hot glue you will need an awful large amount considering the average led strip for under a car consists of 2x 6 feet strands and 2x 4 foot strands.

Ok, bad idea....that might get a wee bit expensive...
