Several people have inquired about adding lights to add-on items, such as front lips, wind splitters, and other bumper or fascia modifications. There is not a lot of room under there, especially if you are lowered, so here are a few tips to help install, as well as making it easy to install and remove the parts, as needed.
The lights will need 12v+, and will use basic two conductor cable/wire – I recommend using a waterproof connector, so the part can be easily removed. Here is a connector cut from a headlight assembly:I added silicone to further waterproof the connector, just in case. Then I cut a small hole, 3.5″ back from the second fascia bolt from the outside, in order to run the wires:From there, just cut enough wire for the splitter connection, as well as the end that goes in the car and through the fascia. I already had 12v+ there, so I only needed a few feet to reach my lines:
At this point, it is time to add your led strips. There is not enough room for anything else. In addition, if these are damaged, a new set can easily be installed, and they are quite cheap to replace. ($10-20 from ebay) I cut two strips, one for each side of the hole I drilled:
The hole lines up with this hole in the under carriage, right in the center of this picture:
Added silicone to the solder joints:
With enough slack on the added wire and connectors, the splitter 12V lines can be attached through the hole in the under carriage, then the entire thing can be mounted / unmounted any time you need to do so.
