Icon6 In-Dash LEDs

So today I wired in some leds into my dash. I am still working on putting them exactly where i like them, but wanted some opinions first!

I will be adding the under-dash leds also (Hopefully soon).

Let me know of any other cool places for lights.

Its EASY. You pop off your radio bezel, and then you wire it into your power for your radio. After that you put a switch in. I mounted my switch in the little cubby under my radio, and it is completely hidden. Then run your power supply to all of your leds, which are mounted where you wish. The last part is the ground. I ran my ground all of the way to a metal to metal bolt under the glove box.

I think it looks good. I put blue LEDs in the door speaker grilles of my Contour. That looked pretty cool.
