    I just bought 300 light strip of 3528 (blue) and hope to use 18 or 24 around each headlight as daytime running lights.
    I intend to pick up power from a circuit that turns on with the ignition switch and
    run the two sets .
    Do I need a resistor in line ? Or will that dim the brightness ?
    I will probably put a fuse in line ; I think it should be 1 Amp for each foot of strip lighted !
    Will brightness be significantly lower if both sets are in parallel ?
    Should I feed the two strips in parallel or feed each with a separate wire ?
    DRLs on a 96 Lincoln Town Car !
