I used EIGHT 4-chip superflux white LEDs. Mounted them on a small circuit board and fit that into the rear dome light in the 4runner.
It is an amazingly bright, crisp white light

I used one Pre-Wired 4-chip superflux white LED on each side of the back hatch area in the 4runner. They are tied into the dome light and give out quite a bit of light!

StreetGlow light up (solid and blinking) collapsable cone.

Playing around with red and blue flex strips in the grille. I could toss in a few more, hook them up to a strobe controller, and have me a cheap little cop light =)

Installed front bull bar from eBay and some PIAA offroad lights I picked up for free. I wired up some relays so that the offroad lights will turn on when I hit the highbeams. I also wired the H4 HID headlights so that the lowbeams stay lit when the highbeams are on.

Next I'm going to pull the front turn signals out, bake them, and fill them with superflux LEDs. ... mmm bake icon_razz.gif

Nice work Phil. Lets see some more pictures of that shed or whatever it is. Looks like a bunch of UB Kit boxes on the ground.

Wow almost 4 hours later I've got one almost done.

5 rows of 14 supeflux 4-chip LEDs:
- 3 rows of amber/yellow
- 2 rows of red on a different circuit.

So thats 28 red and 42 yellow, at Oznium retail price, ONE is costing me $128. It better be bright!

Just testing on 9 volts

The soldering is pretty clean - Each LED uses 2.0 volts, so I ran 7 LEDs in series figuring I wouldn't have to worry about blowing them out since the car will only get around 13.5 volts max.

those blinkers are going to be killer bright. My blinker matrix has more LEDs that yours, but each LED is only 1200mcd. Combine 125 of them together and they are bright. Yours will be over kill, but worth seeing.

jesus this is bright, it still flashes normal rate

I think I'm going to wire them up so they stay on whenever the headlights are on, as running lights, and then flash when the turn signal comes on.

It will look crazy coming towards me at night icon_eek.gif

Got one all wired up and sealed

oh come on now phil, i know you've seen pictures of my tC's glow... center airvent will accomodate a 4" cathode, the cubby under the hvac accepts another 4" cathode (and you only need 1 tranny, the wires are long enough to stretch). the headrests accept flex strips with some cutting of the strips down a couple of led's. the center cupholders are dying for some led's, especially with that water bottle in there. change out those dome lights to green bulbs/leds. the gauge cluster/hvac takes plcc2 surface mount led's.

Yea I'm gonna risk the red lights on the front for a while, I figure I don't have much to lose.

Some photos are showing the headlights with the highbeams on as well as the HID bulb, that is why it looks yellower.
