I bought my Led panel from here:

V-LEDS HID WHITE 48 M-SMT PCB 194 158 168 57 BA9s 3175 DE3175

You don't need a base and if you "like" them on Facebook you can get a discount code.

12V 30A RELAY WITH 5 WIRE SOCKET HARNESS SPDT | eBay

This a universal 5 prong relay with harness. Amperage is not important as the light only draws 360mA. I got mine from Pepboys (I had to go behind the counter and find it myself because they were lost). Sorry no part numbers but you can find these locally, but they will be a little more expensive.

First locate the hood switch on the passenger side fender. This part of the security system and I assume all cars have this:



This switch has two wires: one in black the other is blue w/ a pink stripe. We will use the blue w/pink stripe wire to trigger our relay. The trigger wire is a reverse ground trigger and should be wired like this:



and mounted here for easy access:



Run the wires for the light under the hood blanket and mount your light. I used Gorilla glue and mounted it directly to the hood liner.





Enjoy!

Hi
great work!!! Finally decided to install the same. :bigthumbsup

2 questions:
Where do you ground the led panel, right on the hood, or at some ground "collection point"?

And... did you thought of a fuse (due to direct connection to the battery pin?

Many Thanks, and greetings from Germany,
Dan
