LED lights are more popular, since theirs advantages of high efficiency and long life spans. Some of my friends tried to use led lighting to decorate their autos. Cool! One idle day, I decided to make a led lighting DIY project, install led strips in headlights on my Toyota matrix. Now let’s start.

Components for this project:
About 20ft gauge hookup wire
Several 18 gauge male and female crimp on quick connects
18 gauge wire tap-in connectors
Scion OEM style rocker switch
2 pcs flexible grill led strips
15amp automotive fuses
Add-a-circuit fuse box tap-in
Electrical tapes

Step 1: Do great prep works before the day of the installation

Basically, you need firstly to sketch out a wiring diagram for all the wiring needed for this mod, and then go ahead and prepare all the wiring so that you will save a lot of time when the day you install the strips.

A diagram I sketched out that shows all the connections and how everything will be laid out show in blow image. 

As you can see in the diagram, the led strip on the passenger side connect to the extra wire length and then get tapped into the led strip on the driver side, then the driver side LED strip gets connected to the extra wire length that goes through the firewall and inside the car under the steering wheel above the pedals. Then a ground wire is tapped-in into that same extra wire length on the - side and gets grounded to a bolt. Next the – and + ends of that same wire goes through the firewall, in the car and goes to the switch, and finally the fuse box tap-in goes from the switch to the fuse box underneath the pedals.

Very well done! Just hope the popo don't get on you for it!
I've always wanted to light the interior of my car with LEDs, in the same way the Saab Aero-X concept did. How could I do that without messing my car's electrical circuit?<br>
You can use one of these ATM Fuse Taps (super easy to use) and plug it into your &quot;dome light&quot; fuse inside your car. After that, it's just installing the lights and hiding the wires!<br><br> http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&amp;q=ATM+fuse+tap&amp;ion=1&amp;um=1&amp;bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&amp;biw=1366&amp;bih=654&amp;ie=UTF-8&amp;tbm=shop&amp;cid=8023726889294377750&amp;sa=X&amp;ei=zUBeT5bMDInw0gHO7MX0Aw&amp;ved=0CHQQ8wIwBg
nice, but what temp did you use when you put them in the oven?
well, super cool! but watch out for cops in the US with these extra lights, any additional lighting that isn't approved by the DMV.
