    my question is...is this something too difficult for a beginner to do?

    and if anyone can point me to an area where i can learn the basics of making this...or if anyone can help me out with that that would be cool. im here to learn how these work so maybe i can extend it to making these for other cars or so.


    thanks in advance!

    Learning LED's is cool but modifying automobile lighting is not cool around here. Read the terms of service up on top of the forum somewhere.
    There are 6 or 7 ebooks on top of the main page. LED's ought to be in there.

    Rules violation and by the way, spreading the light sources around in the housing may be good for new design but the original filter lens was designed to work with a single point source of light and won't look like the original without that.
