You will probably get pulled over. BUT, if you must, superbrightleds.com has some waterproof lights that are 12v hookups which will work. You just need to wire it somehow all together with a switch. That's my recommendation.

You can find waterproof LED's on ebay for cheap. The LED's will be waterproof but you need to make your connections water proof too. Meaning any connections need to have some heat shrink on them and well as some GOOD electrical tape. Not that Jap Wrap cheap shit, I mean some 3m #33 electrical tape.

The LED's that I have in my trunk are "waterproof" and I got those on ebay for less than a buck each.


Oh and I agree with Don, you'll probably get pulled over with them on while driving. They're considered a distraction, just like having an underbody glow kit on.

My cheap ebay ones seem like they'd be pretty durable. The LED isn't exposed, its covered in a clear plastic.

yeah that would be a good idea, and you will need to wire resistors before the leds if youre just ordering bulbs

If he buys the LED strips off of ebay he won't need any resistors.

You can go to radio shack and buy an "inline fuse" and use that if you don't want to tap it into something that already has a fuse. They're like a couple of bucks there. The LED strips don't pull much so you won't need a huge fuse maybe 1-5 amps depending on how many strips you use.

You would hook the fuse up in between the positive wire going the power source and the LEDs.

______________Power____________Fuse_________________LED_______________


^Thats a very crude drawing but its the simplest way to do it.
