I'm working on LED underdash lighting. The Neon and Cold Cathode just eat too much juice when I have the doors open at car show.

Let me know what you think.

It looks like another fun project for the Z.
:shiftdrive:

Are you going to use the factory door switches to obtain your ground?

Yes I tapped into the wires by the fuse box.
Did I see a post where you have done something similar?

I can get blue, white, amber, red and green.
There are two LEDs mounted in a small pod with a clear lense. There are four pods under each side of the dash. It makes for a nice spread compared to individual LEDs.

I've also found a 4 LED blue bulb that fits in the socket for the rear hatch light and a 4 LED bulb for the overhead lamps.

LEDs draw in the milliamps, so you can leave them on for a very long time with no affect on the battery.

Some of the bulbs have not arrived yet. After I get them and confirm they are the right size I'll post the info.

I know that this is alittle but of an old thread, but im new to the forums and am looking to do something similar with LED\'s. Does anyone have an idea about how many LED\'s it would take to get a nice ambient color under the dash. Thanks
