Default LEDs finally installed

so i was finally able to install those LEDs behind the vent control on this beautiful warm day. It's in my pic gallery. I think its a clever/practical mod. Anybody have advice on how to take better night time photos?

I know I know my Max AC light is burnt out.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

What'd you do? just install blue LED's in the back so it lights up the slider tracks? or am i missing something else? what LED's did you use? Any resistors? what's it wired up to? Looks nice! and the Panasonic HU....hahah....Nice!

i was too lazy to solder resistors and the like so i bought varad LEDs and used wire tap plugs to plug into the cig lighter bulb.
green i believe is - and brown is + if i recall correctly. then just ran 2 LEDs behind the slit. its a real pain to aim it correctly cos they are very uni directional so i should really find something to disperse the light more and illuminate the back area better but i think its nice regardless.

oh yes i love being able to play mp3s in my saturn

i wonder if a neon would have been better or the slider might interfere and its a pain getting it back there w/o taking out the HU
