Little update. Good ol' Mike (dyogim) got me hooked on these LED strips. I hooked them up this past weekend. I just ran a red wire with an inline fuse from the battery back to the driver tail light. These LED strips are bright and make a huge difference when you need to see at night. I'll get some night shots later for you all to see.
Didn't have to cut at all. It ran perfectly around the entire circumference of the shell.
Here's them on.
Where I ran my power all hidden. You can see the backside of the switch. Just driller a hole.
I'm working on my rock lights now, more to come....
