DD,
I am looking for super bright LED s I can use to illuminate my under hood paint. Can you recommend something?

I am thinking about tiny spot lights or strobes that can be mounted to the firewall and be inconspicuous when not in operation.

Thanks

Rob,

We just added an Engine Bay lighting kit to our site. It will be plenty bright to show off your engine bay and is easy to install.

It's 10% off till midnight tonight with the code July

Most vendors would include a link to a product on their site so a customer could easily find it.

Just saying...

Never mind then, because I went to your site and couldn't find it. I'll look at other options then, thanks. :thumbs:

Nick,
Thanks for the link

I looked at the under hood lights and while they are very nice, I am looking for high intensity spots that I can use to better light up the under hood painting. Bright enough to work in full sun light conditions. Because the hood opens forward, and generally the Punisher is parked facing into the sun to give the best natural lighting to the exterior artwork, the under hood area is generally in the shade. Its gloss black with a 4 foot punisher head in red with flames and as a result of ths shading and the high reflectivity, it is difficult to see at shows. I am looking to put a LOT of light up there .

Do you have any suggestions?

Hmm...

These strips are definitely more of an "ambient lighting" solution vs. a full blown spot lot.

You might get the spot light effect you are looking for by adding one or two sockets in the engine bay somewhere and installing some LED bulbs, like a 921 or something.

You'll have to get something pretty bright to make a big impact during the day

Nick,

Feel free to pass this on up and down the chain of command if you wish.

I want you to know that I and perhaps others really appreciate your companies involvement here. We know you ultimately want to sell some bulbs; but I for one find it refreshing to gain knowledge that is seemingly unbiased (to my novice senses), and educate us about not only your products but especially on the testing proofs and things that should matter when looking for LED's etc. What you gain is an informed clientele that will remember your company. I've been to your site during one of the discussions where one of our geniuses pointed out a description mistake (methodology), and you or your company made no excuses, explained why you used the nomenclature for ease of understanding, but fixed it so the information was technically correct. This too bodes well in building trust and I wish all our vendors took that path.

No doubt this is the harder "sale" but is the most noble sale to gain valued repeat customers. I wish you all the best in your endeavors if you hold true to that paradigm.

In short you guys are doing it right, and I just bookmarked your site.

Keep up the good work.

Thank you for the kind words Solo!

We are actively looking for a Solstice here in St. Louis to come in for product testing and comparison photos. It takes some time, and we got on the forum early to help members learn about lighting.

On an unrelated side note, I'm originally from Leawood, and will be in Kansas City on Friday for Fast Fridays at KC Trends (if it's this Friday)

If you able to make it, come say hello!

If I install the single color kit, will it tun on when I open the door and then slowly dim when I close it? Just like the light under the mirror.

You can tap into that power source to have it operate with the factory interior lighting

Send us an email for more wiring tips: [email protected]

It will dim the same as your factory lighting, and come on with your dome/map light if you decide to wire it in that circuit
