Wiring led lights in 1/24 1/25 scale car

I also need a website or two that sells everything I would need as I do not have a hobby shop near by.
Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated !!

Ace! That website is perfect !! Thank you! A diagram would be great!! What size led would you recommend using?
I usually use the 5mm for headlights because I got a bunch of them cheap for a 1:1 project. Normal car seal-beam headlights came in 7" and about 5.5" round, so the 5mm, approximately 5 scale inches in 1/25, work well. The 3mm work well for projector-style headlights, and the 1.8mm can look like a bulb back behind a lens. It really just depends on the look you want. They make almost no heat, so you can usually wrap them in aluminum foil to prevent stray light in taillight installations, etc.
As far a wiring goes, you should be able to run enough LEDs for the non-flashing lights in a car from one coin-holder-switch. Connections are simple...connect all the red wires together and all the black wires together, insulate the connections and you're done.
