LED light in overhead console.

First post in this entire section!

To take the unit out, you need to push the clips in.



Then the two screws found at the black "L" brackets.



I cut back the plastic on the LED.



Made a holder out of a chunk of plexi glass.







I painted it black.



Then I hot glued it in place.





Think it turned out looking great.



Don't pay attention to the wire in the back ground.. I still need to fine tune the setup and hide the wire.

Sweet job, looks to be done by a pro

Edit: do you think of doing all three strips, it might look cool (?)
personally I'd wanna do the hole(s) longer & three of them IMO

I think it may look neat, but be to bright for night driving. I stole this idea from my wife's HHR. It has a white LED light in the over head console.

New P13W LED head light for camaro 2010 & up

I am Nauman ,I live in Treasure island I do LED automotive Lighting business in west USA ,And most of my client use them for 2010 & UP Chevy camaro with only the “LS/LT” Standard halogen headlights .
In the beginning ,we find a 7.5W with projector lens from china market with a similar base P13W .When I install them and appear three problems : The socket are not so deep ,Also the O-Ring Groove is too close to the flange .The color is just right to what we need .
For better solve this Problem ,We contact with an another company called Shenzhen Moya Led lighting co.,ltd ( luxlighting(at)126(doc)com .)and send one of my Philips halogen 55W headlight for their study and after wait 2 weeks ,They send me a same sample and it is just what I real need .I am so happy about that .Now I ordered 200 pairs each month ,And also with beautiful packing for my clients .And the price is very good even compare with E-Bay .

Any guy who also use these lamps ,I like to share the experience .Thank you !
