Re: Questions RE: Installing Interior 12v LED Light Strips

I hope I am not violating any forum rules here... let me know if I do please, BUT, you can get awesome deals on 12 V led Strip lights at a place I get my radio control airplane parts called They have both warm white and bright white as well as blues, reds, green etc.

I buy the strip of 12 (qty) light set for $2.90 and make my own mount... They work great directly connected to 12volts no problem.

The warm whites simulate a regular incandescent bulbs color spectrum pretty good.

Try a blue strip mounted under a seat or cabinet edge for a pretty look against white gelcoat at night.

The current is really low so you can use very small wire to operate them as well.

I do a lot with LEDs since the power consumption is so low.
