Auto DIY – How to Make LED Headlights for your Car!

My friends have been asking me how to make LED headlights ever since they found out I can hack up some electronic stuff.  Well, LEDs are pretty easy to me since I’ve dealt with them a lot but I won’t tell you how to do it, there’s a guy who made an instructable for that.

The first image shows how things look right now: two upper ‘edge’ arrays, each with 21 5mm LED (pointed forward, 5 degrees down and 5 degrees outwards), a central array of 60 LEDs at top density (pointed straight forward, replacing the twelve LED array around the Hyundai symbol) and two lower ‘edge’ arrays, each of 24 5mm LEDs (pointed about ten degrees down, five degrees inwards). Not counting the eighteen LEDs that sit under the hole where the Hyundai symbol used to sit, the array is consuming 10.5 Watts at the LEDs, 1.6 Watts at the resistors and draws precisely 1 Amp (1000 mA) from the source.
