I've actually been wanting to change my mazda's front end to the ranger style headlights/grille but I think this has changed my mind on that, today I removed my headlights to see what I could do to make them illuminate when im parked for night shows and swag factor when i run into the store to grab a few things.
I took 8 10mm diffused wide angle leds, and mounted them in the top and bottom of the headlight, even with just 4 the lighting was bright but the 8 makes it real even at all angles, all I had laying around was blue at the moment, so.. the once my leds ship I will pop the red ones in to match my paint.
Due to temptation reasons.. I'm not going to make these flash or even have a mounted switch to activate them, I'm going to use my alarms - trunk output, and wire up a a relay pack with 4 relays and 2 diodes to be able to use the - pulse into a latching on/off output. IE-free remote turn on/off, and I may wire them into the alarm park flash as well, but not sure until i actually have the red ones here to test it in place.
This was the original 4 leds
and again but with 8, at about 5 feet away.
What you guys think? I know im pretty excited to get my leds, I just ordered another 1000 resistors and have plenty more leds on the way for some more interior mods and other projects as well. =]
