OK, so I did Deekdaddy's hood now as well and this time took some pics in the process so I can do the writeup for those that are interested...

The 1st pic is showing the relay schematic I have been talking about. On deek's car I tied it to the low beams because he doesn't have remote start but if you hit unlock twice it turns on the low beams for a minute... Mine you hit remote start and the markers come on until you turn the car on with the key so that's what I used.... You could also tie this to interior lights, whatever....

The second pic just shows the under hood wiring.... If I ever get the hood ducts and pad, they will cover most of this...

The 3rd shows the wiring loom of all visible wires...

the 4th shows where I crammed the little radio shack project box I stuck the relays in to keep them watertight...

The knight rider light was a pre made el cheapo off ebay and the relays are ELK 912 that I have easy access to but many will work.. the generic term is Dry contact relay...

These are good for about anything they will handle 12A at 28VDC or 120VAC so you can use them for almost anything...

Here's the one I recommend. Not to crap on your style, it's just what most of the knight rider light users are getting for the Charger and it's from AAC. It's the one I have in mine as well.

that's tight, I'll have to check it out... maybe a switch up in the future... Looked high and low and either they were expensive, overly complex, build it from scratch or all of the above... then i found this on the cheap from ebay, but 30 bones aint bad from aac if that's what it be... I'll have to look into it...

Awww, I was hoping it had more funnctions than just the one shown... damn... have to think abou that... I kinda like the sweep especially with the trails but like I said, wish it was more than basically a 4 segment... Plus i'd need 2 of those 30 dollar kits to get the brightness of mine, I';m running 2 strips that work together with multiple different patterns that in this application are stacked together and run the pattern that makes it look like it's one strip going back and forth...
