So I decided to get a flexible LED strip for my trunk to light it up. I went with the blue 28" strip from Oznium. My sister wanted some too so she went with the green. I went over to her house last night to hook them up and we took tons of pics. She didn't send me the rest yet because the file was huge. Turns out she needs a new trunk latche because where the ground wire for the light attaches is broken off and if you ground it elsewhere it never goes out :roll:

more pics to come later after she gives me the good ones.

hmm idk. it looks very blue in person. my sister's green is definitely brighter though, but that's just because green is brighter than blue. they both look good.

Is that how you treat your BC Rich Warlock Guitar? Shame on you!!! :beatstick: It deserves a case.

Anyways, the light looks pretty cool. Did you just wire it to your OEM trunk light wiring?

lmao! I knew someone was gonna ask about that guitar. Get this. My friend was throwing it away so I decided to take it off his hands. It's the cheapest Warlock with only volume control and it's pretty messed up honestly. The neck doesn't sit flush to the body and it'sbowed pretty badly from sitting awkwardly I imagine. I can't even playso I figured I'd take it and learn. I can lpay about 10 seconds of Lazy Eye by Silversun Pickups now :rofl:

And yes, just tapped into the OEM light wiring. works fine :smile:

Nice. Although if you wanted it to be a more functional trunk light you should of went with a white shade as blue makes things very hard to see.. +1 for doing it though.

Thanks Anthony. I'm gonna be completely honest here... it was more for looks. I'm a ricer :rofl: The blue goes with the other blue lighting I did, and actually it still lights up the trunk pretty well. In addition, I left the original halogen light in there as well.

Nice I used the 28" strips as well for my trunk, only in pink...and they aren't visible like that I hid them. They are bright little shits though. I have two of them.

Yeah, I saw yours Crystal. I just stuck mine to the lip under the trunk lid so that I'd get the maximum light output from them. I'm very pleased with the outcome. :smile:

They're seriously VERY bright for how tiny they are. They shocked the hell out of me when I installed them.

You should give me your blue LED strip since my car is blue. And then you can get yourself a set of white ones! Since white matches silver better.

Thanks Crystal. I think it adds a lot to the otherwise boring engine bay I've got.
