    Gents,

    So ive re worked all my under bonnet which is now complete, local meets now dark this time of year so i thought id put some lights in not too chavvy but to shine up so u can see the carbon ect.

    So bought some lights of ebay, listed as doll house lights which were cheaper that car ones but exactly same :S

    So, i whipped off the sound deadening and sized everything up

    The lights are sewed in as the tape wasnt up to scratch really

    So soldered all the wires to a point which is connected to a 9v battery box mounted under the bonnet, didnt want to run it to the car.

    Really happy with the outcome not over powering just a nice cool led white glow, and all for less than 15 quid :D
