    I have everything in place and I'm ready to connect the wires. Cannot get the light to come on. I've tried every combination including grounding to the car. What am I missing here?

    I'm curious if anyone has completed the brake light version of this mod. If so I would love to see how if came out. I just ordered some inverters and el wire with one dual intensity circuit.

    I picked up one of these on buyee.jp.

    This is just a little bit too big. And the mounting tabs for the emblem would need to pass through three of the LEDs.
    I suggest avoiding any listing that looks like this:

    No. they were replaced back to stock along time ago.... The inverters never seem to last more then a few months.

    Ha, I think I clicked this like button before I met you, @Burna J .
    But I remember you mentioning it at a mod party.

    Just round this on buyee.jp:

    Although it looks somewhat orange to me, they're advertising it as a RED or Blue LED background.
    I guess you'd have to cut the mounting tabs off your emblem and get creative with the mounting solution.

    The el wire that I purchased that is sold as 'fire red' does appear very orange to me as well. The pictures appeared red however I do not see it. My inverters have not arrived so I have not been able to energize it, I have my fingers crossed that it will appear red.
