Black Escallade light project

Have you added running lights? Headlamps? Perhaps some spinners?

Post by bruces_eviltwin »

This one is for a girl for xmas, lights are the only mod other than extra battery power this is a simple straight forward job.

Looking good! The Blacklight Escalade. From the pictures the light spread looks real even. Nice job.

I had to use many short strips to get it even, also I really dislike when it shines thru the body so placement was carefully planned. On the bright side the metal support tube once fastened in place makes an excellent conduit :D

Yep, that's lit up alright. Got any pictures of the install of the underglow? I'm curious about the "conduit" you mentioned. You just made somebody very happy for Christmas. Good job.
