... And good news, a full range of colors and sizes (4" to 6 feet) have been expedited and will be available within one week. ~~ Still in time for Christmas!


12" cathode tube on left
vs.
9.5" flex strip on right

For under $7, you get TWO of these 12" cathode tubes.

For about $10, you get ONE of these flex strips.

Cathode puts out more light for the money, but it is not as rich of a color. It is more faded white.

Flex strip can be bent, cut, or submerged in water.


The cathode can't be bent, cut, nor submerged in water.

Unlike the cathode, the flex strip is dim-able. It will work great hooked up to a dome light or instrument light circuit.

I'm really looking forward to the 6 foot strips. I wan't make an unconventional christmas light display around the house. And I want to try them out for an underbody kit!

Yeah the flex strips are just a two-wire hookup. On/off. Or make your own controller to do dimming / strobe / etc.

Phil, this is how I plan to use them when they come out... I'll be sure to take lots of pics (as usual). I was pretty set on using blue cathodes under my MINI until you announced these - since the LED strips are moisture-proof right out of the box, they seem like a MUCH better way to go.

Thanks!

So... you can hook them up to your dash... but I was wondering if you still keep the dimming function with the stock dash light controls... You know... If you wire the LED strip through the stock lighting?

I could use brighter lights in the dash. I already have two (I think) bulbs that are out, and It's kinda hard to see the RPMs at night. I figure if I have to change out the two bulbs... I might as well replace everything back there at the same time.

I know the last time this was posted on was several days ago, but could someone answer this question?

I did this with mine and yes, they do still dim.. seems to be a little quicker than stock though. (looks badass, too.)

well my gauges need alittle tweaking of the led location and afew more guides out of the inside...
just 2 spots that need work... ontop of the speedo.... and far left side of the tach.

i knew about those 2 spots that needed adjustment BUT i got worked up and hurried up and put em back together... very minor i just have to pull em and tweak them

phil, if you ever have a chance to modify the strips, you may want to look at thicker wires. The wiring is so small and delicate that it's hard to strip. But that could just be me and my wobbly hands.

dito.......

my first three sets i striped with my teeth and ended up busting my lip open doing so.LOL

my last few wires i ended up just using my knife and just sliding it on the wires hoping to strip or stretch the wire enough to strip it.... unfortunatly it still breaks alot trying to strip them :(


definatly some thicker wires if ya can... it would be worth it for alittle more money to me!
