No idea why its not in active topics man. 6OTM stuff & 3rd gen stuff isnt either. Instead of clicking active topics, click todays posts to see everything.
@Knupsel & i both had the same issues with the ebay strips. A local member had bought a bunch of the strip pictured below & had lots left over so he hooked me up with some. You gotta get the strips with the bigger, brighter diodes like these. This still shines through even with like 4 coats of nightshade on my reflectors.
I believe they are waterproof ya. They have that clear silicone kinda protector on top of the strip. They are waterproofed when you silicone them into the reflectors though.Noice, thx man. Ill look for some on superbrightleds.com, I wasn't sure how bright to go haha. Are those waterproofed though?
Ya i woulda like to have more in there but i only had enough to put that many in each reflector. Im really pleased with them & cant wait to see how good they look at night!!
Any silicone would be sufficient and I used a grinder to grind the plastic out and wouldn't worry about cutting through the light I would use a dremmel a knife would take you days lolFor wiring help, I found this sometime ago when I was trying to do this same thing. Here is link to PDF:

Thought i could open them up with a heat gun but that was super difficult. Think ill try this style this weekend. Still have the LED strips I purchased a while back.
What kind of silicone did you guys use? Just clear kind from Home Depot or Lowe's?
And did you cut them out with a knife or dremmel?
