ok, i sold my V1 before winter cause i was gonna get the V2. ended up buying soething else, i think it was parts for the HD.

but, im wanting to do the puddle lights on the ole HHR. 5 per side.
i know the scion guys buy a kit from somewhere, but the last i checked her was out of stock on the white ones.

which LEDs can i use to get the perfect puddle effect?

TIA

some people get 4 chip leds but if the lip of your door panel is not wide enough 5mm leds will be fine and if you are worried about the tips of the led heads hitting the top of the side step then just sand them down flat

I would suggest the thin led modules and stick them to the bottom of your door.

Damn I miss ImagoX.

You might try some LED spots instead of the floods.

If you want I will take my floods and stick under the car with some double sided tape and wire it in so you can see what they might look like under a car

I think if the circles of light are going to touch/overlap then you're better off going with a whole bar style . I'm not feeling the way its set up in those pictures in the write-up .

I'd say use LED spotlights. Could get a bit expensive though.

Matt mentioned that the 10MM are more directional and gives the circular pattern .... and you can adjust it by setting them back further in the mounting tubes he used , the other thing is the distance to the ground from the bottom of the door ... My Avenger are circular patterns with 5mm but my doors are really close to the ground...

I'd expect waterproof ribbon to just give you a bar of light unless its really close to the ground, no ?

i was thinking the same thing, the modules should put off plenty of light.
