what kind of LED's did you use, were they a strip with 5050 or 5630 LED's?
Do they cancel or dim when you use your indicator on the same side?

Im not sure what type of led they are as they are moulded inside a rubber shroud , but compared to the normal led strips they are 5x thinner and purpose made for headlights .
I got them free with a bag of goodies from a friend who got from halfrauds discontinued line.

They dont dim or turn off and they dont spread out as far as the indicators they sit under main beams only and they look brighter then they are

best pics i can do

Hi

The ones you listed look good but i guess it depends on what your going to do . I dont think
they would be ok for how i have done mine as i dont think they can bend at such a sharp point
also can they be cut if you need them shorter. i think they would make good Angel Eyes if they can be cut , i like Angel Eyes
