Picture of Birth of an Idea
Projects always take life in brain rather than on Sheets and Tools,
Think Think think....

Look at your Vehicle, Stare, Dream, Gleam!

Dream up what position, Colour of glow, Intensity etc will look good on your Car. Also keep in Mind about the car's shape , Colour and Body style.

hello Sam, I read your instructable as well as our communications once again. 1. adding a diode is easy. you add it inline as you do a resistor. cut your positive wire, add a diode in between (with silver strip towards led ) and seal it off. you're done. 2. I wished to add connections, however each car is vastly different so I could add generic comments only. xuv 500 thunderbolt is eons more complicated over your swift so I didn't want to confuse readers with cryptic instructions (and they won't work on their car ) 3. you could tap into any fuse or relay that comes on when vehicle is on. with some ingenuity, it would be easy to locate such relays in the engine bay. user manual shall mark these and provide a legend. if you don't seem to find appropriate relays, it will be better to call a mechanic instead. I hope you liked it, please vote as I'm appearing for glow contest.

If am not wrong the entire zest of the ible was how to do connection from where to take the power source and how did you attached the diode. But those are no where to be seen except a vague information. I would suggest to include those pictures in details which will make it demanding.

Like this which was done a few months back
