Skylark Headlights

Since I was driving an old car, I figured why not have some fun and modify it a little. I always thought the LED outline of the Audi headlights looked sweet, so I set out to put some on this car. I got some 12v white LED strip online. I soldered wire to the ends, the covered the exposed bit in hot glue and heat shrink for some waterproofing.

These lights worked great and stayed on the car through a Michigan winter before the car broke beyond repair (brake line rusted through).
