Silfox=LED king. You are the friggin man yo!
His JVC HU does change colors. In person, it's really red and it matches his gauge needles and odometer.That looks awesome.. The only suggestion I would make is to find a stereo that matched... I know Kenwood has the HU that you can choose from a bazillion colors. Regardless that definitely looks pimp!!!
Thank you Jason, yes the red screen is the same color as the odometer and needles. I had it blue for a bit one night and it just looks better red. My JVC changes from red, rose, pink, purple, ocean, and blue.His JVC HU does change colors. In person, it's really red and it matches his gauge needles and odometer.That looks awesome..

Did you screw the insert down so you can't take it out?If you look at the cupholders rubber insert, there is a rubber nub that locks it in place. I cut that nub off and a hole the size of the LED in the middle of the insert. The hole that the nub locks into is the perfect size for the LED to lock into, I just ran the wires through that hole and hooked them into the neon under the drivers dash. I used a 10" neon under each side, the LEDs are from Autozone. They came in sets of three with about 4' of wire and a resitor wired in, so its prety simple. For the airvents, I lined the inside of each one with tin foil tape, used for airconditioning work mostly. The tape really makes it all shine well, and you cant really see it unless you are looking for it. The LED is in the bottom edge pointed up, I played with the placement a bit and that looked the best. I have them all on one 3/4" round switch where the power outlet in the dash used to be. That is a constant hot, so I just fused it al 10A amd tapped everything into it.
Heres a pic of the LED off:
I think that would prolly happen. I know that I get a lot of water from condensation in the bottom of my cup holder.You think if I was to do that, and I put a big cup in the cupholder without the LED/sleve inside, the water could bridge the contact causing it to burn the fuse?
If you ever figure out a pressure switch let me know. I pondered for a while, but it hurt. For the condensation, I out a few layers of clear tape over mineI got an idea of what I could do...make the contacts in that little square cut out for the cup handles and in the sleve over there...the water doesn't usually get over there so it's all g. Then i'm going to put some kind of pressure switch so it only goes on when I put a bottle in there.
