I know this has a LOT of led lighting and other lighting sorts, but as a LED enthusiast, i am only going to add more. I'm also a big underglow guy. got everything from Oznium.com and I have ICELED underbody on my car now. I plan on doing the same to the dart but being careful on HOW much i do.

anyone plan on adding their own lighting?

ours came with what some type of lighting that comes from under the door when you open it. You may be able to add-on to the existing lighting already there.

well I am an LED guy as well.

I for one do not like the color red. just my preference I am and blue and white kind of guy. so that being said the cluster has already been removed. Shifter bezel , ac controls and the light that emits from the dash around the whole screen and cluster etc has got to be changed SO i did just that. I just finished the cluster so basically the layour will be.


since I have the TFT screen in the dash all ive got to worry about is the tach, fuel and indicators etc. so anyways. right now if you look at your cluster.

your tach and gas is white the turn signals are green and the other things are yellow or green correct . well For me not any more. no.

my tach is blue, fuel is blue needles are blue and turn signals are blue. all things like check engine light abs seat belt etc are all white. THe only thing i cant change is the screen Untill someone figures out how to hack that.

Man whats up with the flower ? LOL

thats just an example I will gladly post up pictures of the led swaps later on.

Foot well leds are easy you may not like the way I did mine but what I did was go to walmart the sell a strip that has 6 leds each pack has two strips so I bought two packs just stick 1 strip in each footwell and hook your wires to a 12 volt power source I run mine to the dimmer switch for the dash led surround just found the hot wire when the lights are on and pushed the wire into the back of the plug so I didn't have to cut the wires and splice and then put a piece of tape around the wire so it wouldn't pull out. They are abt as bright as the factory footwell lighting if you want them brighter use more leds.here is a pic of them

I purchased a 4 pack of leds that can change to several colors, can stay single color, or flash to beat of music off of ledglow.com. pretty good stuff. all you have to do is find a spot to put the bar of light, either screw it in or tape it, and just hide the wires. took me 20mins to install and it looks great in red.

Black,
I actually have the black SXT, and I have been looking at the ledglow.com underglow kits. Do you think you could maybe take some pics so I can see what it looks like?
Also, just curious which kit you got. I was thinking about doing the bluetooth million color since it would give me way more options for exterior appearance.

how do you change the lights on your cluster to blue? I'm more of a blue kinda person not a red but either works for me but would much rather have blue theme then red.

Do you have any pics of where you tied into the dimmer? how difficult was it to gain access?

I'm an electrician by training, so the actual mechanics of getting this done shouldn't be too difficult, it's just access to the correct power source that has me concerned.

I just purchased a '15 GT yesterday afternoon, and already I can see that there isn't enough accent lighting in the car. The plans include some sort of extra lighting in the trunk and for the footwells.

Thanks

Exco
