Hi guys,
I searched around and nobody really has done this kind of thing before.
Was just wondering if LED Underbody kit is doable by individual? Anyone can show me in the right direction, his/her help will be much appreciated. Wondering how to do the fading in/out as well.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, here are some photos I got from other forums: LED Underbody kit Project - Last Post -- posted image.

The cars in the photos were installed with BRABUS kit. They look fabulous, don't they?!
The car in question is 2003 Honda Accord.
Any helps/directions is much appreciated. Thanks.

These are LED discs that you see. We sell these in kits and individually as well. The fadin g is done by a module attached to the LED Lights that regulate the current going to the LED's to make them fade in-out.

I don't want to sound rude, but as cheap as any kit may be, I really want to have that feeling of accomplishment of doing it myself. I hope you understand and also can help me further in this project.

Don't trip it's super easy to do individual L.E.D's in any color any way and anywhere. I did it on all three of my cars and people ask about them all the time. And that's cause it looks so much better when YOU choose where the L.E.D's go and not just have some tacky light bars or something, ya know what I mean. Well if you need any help Hit me up. I would be glad to.

ive made my own led accent lights after buying and returning a wimply little 4 led light kit. im going to to be making car underlights now, so i will definately be doing a howto page on how to do this, its one of those things that would pain to try to do from text, but if you saw pictures it would make sense completely. if im understanding you, you want to do it just like that, im sure i could come up with a decent way to do that, the only issue i can see is you would have to somehow seal your leads and connections and anything like that, because theres no worse place to put sensitive electronic connections than under a car where rain and snow and salt and debris hits it.

im going to be doing an LED underbody kit sometime soon, my plan is to use this metal rodding that i have at my job, its meant for heavy duty curtains like in hospitals but anyway it has a channel that i plan on drilling holes all the way down to mount the leds....the rodding is aluminum so i plan on running all of the anonde legs to the aluminum directly and having it grounded to my chasis....also for weather proofing my plan is to hot glue each and every LED in place and also over each and every open leg....my original idea in the past was using pvc split down the middle but i think this new plan will be much more simple....good luck with your project spoken hopefully i may have been of some help
p.s. as for the "fading" my xbox will control all of that and more....there is this "mod" called the XERC2 which is an LED fader module with many features such as chasing fading blinking the whole nine yards and it can control 4 different sets
