I have (2) 10" strips left... I would love them in the bow... but can't seem to see where they would fit nicely... any ideas?

- Loosened up nuts for bow side cushions next to where you're shoulder would be if seated.
- Pulled out cushion a bit and slid led strip behind cushion where it's at an angle facing speakers.
- Routed wire under cushion to bottom.
- Drilled a very tiny hole directly below cushion and fed wire through. Can't even see it.
- Tightened cushion nuts.
Again, here's what I installed;
- 2 (4 total) in each cabin cupholder section
- 1 in the port storage locker
- 2 under the dash directly above sub
- 1 alongside drivers seat facing wall
- 2 in the bow

Looks good Razz, you took close to the same route we did. The extra bow lighting really helps the overall look at night. Before I did mine, even with the lights inside the speakers, it seems like a dead zone up there.06 Supra 24 Gravity Games

Ditto that on the bow - I have a few little modules up there but just not enough. I'm wondering if I can get a few more strips up if that will help the walkway between the windshield have some reflective glow as well.Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

I love the LED's guys, nice job! Looking for some tips here. What guage wire did you all use to wire the LEDs into your switches? I saw that Ian said he ran a +/- all the way around the boat then just ties into that? How are you guys splicing the wires in, are you using crimp connectors, soldering, T-taps? I ordered up the 10 pack of the 9" in strips and they have very thin wire on them. Thanks in advance for sharing your secrets.2006 Outback V - Gone

I did the same as Ian, +/- all the way around tie into it accordingly. I used crimp connectors with the heatstrink ends that I believe it was Razz had suggested a while back. Pretty thin wire too - like 18-22 gauge if I recall. Kind of nice as you can combine several wires from lights into a single splice point in the big +/- loop. Somebody on here even said they used phone line wire but I wouldn't put to much on that thin of stuff.Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.
