Finally got around to putting the LED daytime running lights into my headlight assembly, and I gotta say it came out better than I was expecting. While driving the led’s are white and when I turn the blinker on they blink yellow starting at one end of the strip and ending at the other.

If you want to do this yourself it only costs 20 bucks and a few hours of your time. All you have to do is bake the headlight assembly (theirs some good tutorials on YouTube). Once that’s opened up stick the Led strip inside the plastic cover with the wire side on the side closest to the front grille (this way when the blinker is on the yellow light moves from the grille side to the outer fender side of the assembly). Once those are in pop them back in the oven with the assembly back together to reseal the glue. Once they’re back on the car I disconnected my lower fog light/blinkers and just wired the led module for each side into that plug. This way I can turn them on and off with the fog light switch. I never use my fog lights so it was a win-win for me, plus the lower blinkers are not needed anymore since the LED strips are now my blinkers.

this is the link for the lights I used

I was thinking of those strips before, they're sold under many brand names, but after reading many reviews the reliability of them seems somewhat low.

Do you have any installation pics?
I'm trying to plan where I might put the cord, etc..

I'm hoping to do this this weekend. I would love to see a picture of behind the headlight. I want to see where I should snake the wires.

Any more info you can give would be helpful.

Looks great! I also installed LED lights in the headlights and inside the interior. Then I found an idea somewhere on the internet, that it could also be installed in the pool. So here we go=) Thanks to led strip light I can see not only what`s on the water surface, but also perfectly distinguish the whole relief. Also, in addition to the beauty, it greatly increases the comfort of swimming. I installed them on cylindrical lights filled with air inside, they float freely on the surface, directing the rays into the depths of water. The walls and the bottom of my pool are light-colored, so the lights reflect off of them slightly, increasing the effect of lighting.
