Module LED Lights

The biggest perk of choosing module LEDs is how little they are! This makes them great for those discreet accent lighting projects, whether you choose to use them for indoor accent lighting or even outdoor accent lighting, there are just so many uses for them. They work pretty great as car accent lighting, so go ahead and light up those wheel wells and engine bays, you can even place these tiny wonders under the dash of not just your car, but your snowmobile and motorcycle as well, the world is your oyster. 


LED Bolts and Pre Wired LEDs

LED bolts and pre-wired LEDs make great additions to your car interior accent lighting, particularly under the hood of your car instead of your boring old standard nuts and bolts, they also fit snugly in cupholders, which looks really cool when the color reflects through a water bottle, and the side-view LED bolts are popularly used as license plate lights on both cars and motorcycles, these make for really practical accent lighting options.


LED Strip Lights

Now this is an accent light option I can talk about all day because as you may know, LED accent light strips have a world of exciting uses! Not only that but there’s such a huge variety that you could easily find a LED strip light for just about any purpose, they’re particularly great for any use that requires the length of the LED to be somewhat customisable because you can cut them to length as you please. As a general rule on LED strip lights, remember to cut after every third LED.
