True if anyone could do it, it would be him.

I agree ^^^^ cool. For the industrious amateur electrician, did this guy just put expensive LED halo companies out of the business of LED halos?

Seems like it. There has to be a catch somewhere. I know when you buy halos from a company they provide inverters. Unfortunately, I do not know what those do. I think I am going to try this one of these days, not on the Charger though-Ill use my GFs Cherokee or something.

I realized that after I posted, I guess I will be upgrading my membership in the near future to utilize the "Edit" button. Do you think this would look decent in the dash? Or would it be too bright?

don't do it. its not worth the fire hazzard of the inverters. just ask the guy who owns the sublime green Hulk car. his car almost burnt down because of them and it cost him thousands of dollars.

it has to do with the way an inverter works. inverters change from AC current to DC current or vice versa i cant remember exactly, along with changing the voltage as well, once you do that, if the wiring of the car is too small, the wire overheats, and cooks... from what i gather, its just easier to use LED's and install the resistor, a resistor might go bad, but won't start a fire...

I like Hid/w/ccfl halos. Almost everyone else is going with bling rings.
