Looks good. Can you post detailed photos during the day on how they look.

Also not sure if its the pic but you can see two shades of the light. Im guessing its due to the two seperate pieces. Can you see this in real life

The two shades of the light like you noticed that I guess because I took a picture from my back seat and In the angle the iPhone camera didnít catch the light uniform all along the stripe but the light itís uniform
Hey listen in the end itís a project that like less than 50$ shipped to my home and literally 2 minutes installation didnít break my bank at all plus you got some lights in your car at night time right now !

Yes sir couldnít be happy specially at night time itís gorgeous!
You were able to have them print in one piece which is 20 inchs long or they did two pieces of 10 like mine?
Also I think we can have them print for a total of 22 inch cause the strip which the led lights are itís like 23inchs I measured last night and for some reason you have the last led dot in the end that kind looks like left by him self so I guess in couple weeks Im gonna have them reprint for a total of 22 inch ps so I can cover the whole black strip where the leds are!
Thatís just a some being OSD lol other than that looks fine !

Looks good! Do you mind sharing the printing specs you used? Like material, layer thickness, etc.? I ask because I feel like yours has a much more uniform look than mine. With mine, I can see the "dotted" light spots on the strip but it seems like with yours it's more of a seamless light bar look. I'm curious if the settings you used for the print job resulted in a strip that was better at diffusing light.

Youíre right I just took a look at your pictures that you posted with yours installed and when you zoom in yours as a lot of dots when mine you can see that the lights itís pretty uniform for the whole stripe but as said before make sure You just ask for the most clear material !

Yeah I'll need to double check again. I like your look more than mine. I suspect it has something to do with the amount of layers used in the print job. More layers, more detailed but less clear. Less layers, clearer end result but more light passes through.

This is for cars that have the lighting package.

As you see in the video you can find the link to the 3D print in the description.

I downloaded it, sent it off, total price $40.00 CAD.

Should be picking up the pieces in a day or two.

Enjoy
