Third gen guys have a kick *** GB now for some LED's.

Anyone interested in true HID projector lights for their first gen? We need about 7 more people.

You want DIY, try surplus for cool parts to start with

Sign modules for 8.95: http://www.goldmine-elec-products.co...p?number=G9987

Smaller 2 colour with yellow and red, modules for 1.99: http://www.bgmicro.com/LED1054.aspx

These would be fairly easy to mount in whatever pattern you wanted, I would think.

10000 Mcd red LEDs, 0.49 each: http://www.goldmine-elec-products.co...?number=G16257

3.75 Lumen red LEDs, 0.39 each http://www.goldmine-elec-products.co...?number=G16750

Very similar LEDs, also 0.39 each http://www.bgmicro.com/LED1198.aspx

These you're basically coming up with your own matrix and controller. Definitely the most flexible way to do this.

Easy way, 15 3/4"x 2" stick on strips for 27.75 http://www.bgmicro.com/LEDCHLSR.aspx
- I'm not sure these are really quite bright enough, but if you used more than one strip maybe....

Or do LED tail lights like this

Here's from 2002 when I had two GSL-SE's - super bright LED's mounted in plastic from the rear - looked like a stock rear until the lights came on.
