    Good work. Seems like a lot of work for about the same effect as a direct plug n play though.

    The plug and plays arent really bright. This DIY has 12 LEDs in it. It really took about 20 minutes to do.

    I have a set of plug n plays I ordered from a guy on here and they are very bright. But still, nice work. Very innovative.

    I ordered plug n play for the map lights but I like the way the dome came out because (cant tell in the photo) each individual LED can be seen when lit up and it actually looks real cool.
