    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

    Cheers pal, well they have been on over a week now and still there still working engine heat has not effected it at all tbh

    Ill have to take some more theres 2 above just on the drive, yeh nothing to chavvy it just gives a nice glow on the carbon'd bits

    My winter plans are 1) Saving up for my custom trim got qouted a bargin price just need to save 2) Get a sline boot and make a US spec size one (not payin 600 an odd quid for a genuine one LOL) 3) A cheap but effective exhaust & valance mod which u all shall have to wait for ;)
