DIY: Trunk LED Strip

Hi guys! I've recently (well a month ago) replaced my trunk light bulb with a LED Strip instead. Here's the DIY for it! Trunk DIY LED Strip Enjoy! Let me know if you have problems.

Here's what I mean for the pics (I honestly don't know why the camera makes it that blue but it's supposed to be LED white)

Thanks Yup, any LED 12V would do. I got mine from eBay and it's also waterproof. I wouldn't recommend my seller as the quality was kinda bad (a few diodes died but luckily not enough to affect the lighting). The link you posted should be better and brighter LEmme know if you have other questions

Nope. I happened to order one that was waterproof. But it's good to have one that is just incase. Accidents can happen. (Of course, make sure your connections are sealed well to prevent short circuiting
