Lightbulb Blue L.E.D Cup, Coin holder Light, with 2 Extended/Adjustable L.E.D. Lights

Santro, Huh many dark spots, with a such a good driving experience it gives, the Inside the car was Dull and dark.
With that said, i always wanted to make it cool looking interiors, but sobor, not looking like a tempo.
Always tried to do L.E.D. work so it stays visible for purpose of eye soothing and not much bling.

Yesterday Made another LED which makes Blue glow on two Cup Holder.
the One coin holder under the Hand Brake.

Also extends the 2 Plastic pipe sleeves which can be dropped under seat, or can be focused at any other location (adjustable to be precise). 3 Blue L.E.D.'s Each side.

The Coin Slots near cup holders holds the Toggle Switch to Control these lights, and of course there's a Fuse under
the cub-holder to prevent Blown up wiring.

Enjoy

This holds the Fuse for 1AMP. which is sufficient for Driving L.E.D. based lights.
Changing Fuse will not require any Re-soldering as it twist opens.
Sigh! The darkspots in my santro! Gphk, why aren't you in chandigarh?! I'd have stolen the console from your car then.

@gphk-Though, I'm not a punjabi, but "spirit to punjabiyon ki hai" . Just two close up pictures of the encircled areas.

Thanks in advance.

bharti22shresth, will take the pic tomorrow as my digi-cam is with a friend and if i use the phone cam it would not be much clear.

anyway the loose wires you notice is running between LED's two on front cup holders, and one round coin box which is under the Handbrake.

Hi GHPK
Can you tell me which LED did you used.
I tried this thing with my car cigarette lighter to give it blue glow but the LED blew.
Can you tell what wattage LED to used and do i need to connect it directly or put some resistance etc.

Yes you need to use a resistance because the LED has a lower voltage requirement (the voltage requirement depends on colour). The car cigarette lighter produces 12V ( a blue led requires 4V ).

Use this LED Calculator.
