Is installing these new LED strips- for extra light to the front end or just for custom look effect?
Both I would assume here- but instead of cutting LED strip lights, you might try something different.
Look to the RV or the Marine industry for enclosed LED lights. Amazon among others have
a wide range of lights, that are not strips to be cut, soldered, heat shrinked for external lighting.
I too considered adding an extra set of LED lights to just under the front chrome strip above the bumper.
Waterproof enclosed casements that could be added & secured to the small black plastic grill, with what looks like easy wiring- that could be tied into the parking lights/side marker lights.
Still an LED strip inside this- but no cutting involved. Several sizes
and price ranges, plus colors too if you're into that. I think this set of
2 was about $30.00 plus shipping/tax but you might find something
similar at your local RV/Boat store. Same day purchase and installation
with maybe an 1 hour labor of your time. Check measurements for
Length, width and height plus how to secure these mini light bars to our
small plastic grills below the chrome strip beforehand. Drilling through
the plastic grills with some sort of small thin backing plate, for support.
Silicone adhesive or small black wire ties could be used also- maybe.
When I looked at these at my local store- they came in 3 lights per bar, for about
$17.00. They also had a 6 light and 9 light bars for approximately- $34.00 give or take.
Extra light is a good thing- especially in dusk or dawn conditions when deer could be
involved. But be careful of how much lumens output, and forward projection these
lights will add to your low beams when in use. You don't want to blind oncoming
drivers with major wattage covering a wide area of the roadway. They must have some
downward tilt toward the road surface.
