Here I used every amp on two chips and drilled LEDs into my shitbox taillights i got for 8 dollars on ebay. there's like 14 LEDs i think. and two boards with 2 chips each. this was a real bitch to build and took way longer than it's value in coolness. but i'll think of something else to do with it. i just wish i knew how to make the boards smaller. the boards i used were the standard same size as the breadboard at radioshack. i got all components from radioshack and the LED from LSDiodes.com. this is a 6V circuit and runs off an altronix power supply in the dash. both of these boards together don't even pull enough to drain a 7Ah 12V battery over about a week of being on 24 hrs a day. so you could leave this thing on in a car for who knows how long. why anyone would want to do that i dunno. looks pretty cool tho.
i'm putting some pics and vids i made here. let me know what you think.

8 or 10 bux? do you know how long it takes to solder all that shit onto that board? hours. then putting the three foot leads and resistors on the LEDs.. another few hours. i'd have to charge hundreds for each setup. unless i could order the boards premade. is there some company that would make me a bunch of boards with the components on them?
i'll make some shot of them on the car soon.
