[QUOTE=Strip Poker 388;2684007]I am looking for some neon/led lights for my engine compartment. I did a search here and saw a few threads on it ,
but there's no definitive answer. Ive seen the Sunsation F4's they look like they have a bright kit in them.
One thread suggested Street Glow name brand.


Trying to decide on length and the led or neon in blue.Thanks for any suggestions


Rob, I just bought a bunch of these for my truck and boat. They are LED's and Stobes in one. No Power supply box needed. These are the coolest lights they have ever come out with!

http://www.oviedosafetylights.com/St...acement_System

Only 7/8" in height, this small hemispheric LED lighthead is perfect for most applications where size and intensity are critically important. Self-contained unit using an in-line combination lamp driver/flasher. This new self-contained LED Hideaway requires only a one inch hole in any composite style head light, cornering light or tail light assembly to deliver true wide angle warning to the front, side and rear of your vehicle… without interference to your vehicle computer and warning equipment! Less than 1" tall, it may also be surface mounted to outside surfaces anywhere on the vehicle! FEATURES * Ultra small, self contained, semi-hemispheric LED light, for surface mount or internal mount within composite head lamps, cornering lamps and tail light assemblies.



* 25 Scan-Lock™ flash patterns, includes synchronize feature for alternating and synchronous flashing of multiple lamps.

Looks good. How many colors can the kit generate?

.red is dark,blue.a blue/green,green,yellow,white,turquoise,coral, it does all that other crazy blinking stuff to.The kit was around 206.The controler box is pretty chep looking , but there all from overseas

Also the plastic tubes, it feels pretty tuff, I could bend it a little to get it under the transom inner lip.


Main thing for the mirrors is the day time,we very seldom are out at night,only one bar/restaurant on the lake, its 500 yards sfrom my slip

3M 5200 should do the trick.
