  • Chrysler 300 LED DRL project

    OK so I've always loved the Audi style DRL and when I bought my 300 last August I wanted to make her mine.
    So I bought some Cree LEDs and this is what I've built.

    I bought some thin plexiglass and cut it with a exacto knife. the width is just under 4mm.







    I then used automotive foam tape.










    Wired them all together.







    So now the hard part is to separate the headlight lens...I'll post some pics when I start THAT project.

    That looks pretty good. Are you leaving the wiring and such exposed? How do plan to mount it, will it sit on a lip inside of the housing?

      Clever way to align the led, and it looks really good.

        I second the clever alignment method. I definitely plan to steal this method and use it on some of my projects.

          I might steal this method also. By the way, has anyone used white Cree P4 LEDs for DRLs? Are those LEDs bright enough to be clearly seen during day time?

            Thanks! No I won't leave the wire exposed. I'm going to make a backing made out of aluminum. It's easy to bend and it will be chrome.

              Since you are going to use aluminum as backing, I would suggest you put some thermal transfer pad between the LED and the aluminum, which allow you to use the backing as heatsink for the LED, and they prevent shorting the circuit too.

                  For me it was easy. It all depends if you have patience to work with small wires

                            Finished the LED build.

















                            Next step is to wire them.
