Looking very good. Even light spread. I'm going to do this. What size resistors did you put in, 600 ohm? Did you use the normal current limiting equation?

my camera makes the lights look really bright, but in person, its a nice evenly distributed blue...i used a 9v battery, and a 330 ohm resistor, the lights are all connected in parallel...i measured it with my DMM and its about 15mA going though it all. i'm probably going to find a way to hook it up to the car battery seeing as the 9v might die =P.

Not bad at all dude. Got a link you can Send me? My dash lights went out over a year ago and my warranty won't cover the fix b/c of the aftermarket CD player. Any help would be great. Thanks.
