Hi. Here is the start of my mustang. I plan on opening the doors as well as the trunk. I also plan on adding fiber optics to light up the car. Any helpful tips would be appreciated, Thanks for looking.

I attempted fiber optics on my GT500 and they just weren't bright enough no matter what I used. I went to LED's instead.

Yeah I still have a long way to go. I just got the door hinges done. Trying to mold the door and door jams. Also going to order some resin wheels from a guy in Menomonee Falls Edited by keone2013

Did you try and melting the tips of the optics? I heard that makes them brighter.

Yup, I tried that just as the written instructions mentioned but it barely made a difference. I think I could have gotten better results with a larger size but then it wouldn't fit the application it was intended for. I wanted to illuminate all of the controls on the dash and guage cluster.

Something that large, LEDs are the way to go. You would have to bunch several strands together and use a super bright led to get the results you want.

Thanks Jorge. Still got a ways to go. Got to make the molding on the inside between the car and door. I decided to scratch adding lights.

That trim on top of door stays with the car. It's the weathrstrip. I may have to convert one of these to 14 spec. So I can build my car
