    Awesome Majikal! Thanks for taking the time and writing this up with pictures. I might give it a try over the summer.

    Shamelessly ripped. I did host the images locally on focushacks.com since imagestation seems to be getting more and more evil about letting external sites link to them. It was well written enough that I didn't really need to do any editing, just added some stuff (like the tools required, etc)

    Thanks, man! Mad props!

    I just use my fingers to remove them...

    Also, I thought 20 amps was a bit beefy. 5 would be more than sufficient for a dozen LED's and then some.

    Also Also, might wanna make sure they buy "12v" LED's from radio shack or something, because most of the LED's they sell aren't made to handle that kind of voltage.

    lol, well, I just used my heated seats fuse that was unused since I dont have heated seats... I was thinking to myself... "this fuse runs MOTORS... it should be fine for LED's"

    Glad you like the write up

    oh, and I used my fingers to get the vent off too, but its easier with a screwdriver, so thats what I wrote and took a pic of. Feel free to change whatever you see fit

    ax0n, if you get regular LEDs you just have to tie in resistors (740 ohms?) to the hot lead, but the "12Volt" LEDs are easier, and have actual wire leads.

    Even 5amps for LEDs is a lot. They draw what? 5 milliamps, or 0.5 milliamps...

    heh...
