I think a bit more research will pay dividends.  There are lots of kits on the market.  You won't be able to order this as it's a UK supplier and for use in Europe, but it might give you some ideas.

Its a little overwhelming the number of companies selling LEDs.  Thats why I posted here to see what others have used.  I'm going to research for a while before I decide.

That was why I went with the IKEA solution. Mark Prince's overview helped also. One nice thing about the while LEDs is that they have a good color balance.

Good luck!

Actually not very difficult and no problems with heat, however my lights are outside of the machine on either side of  the group head.

Hi Rob-

Take a look at waterproof LED strip lights. They come in RGB and you can adjust gain to the color balance you want. Can't speak to heat impact, though.

gorgeous machine but just one question. could they not have made the logo a little bit larger? I just can't quite see it. I wish all cars had logos that large.

I am planing on putting LED lights inside my motorcycle to light the whole thing up red. I know its illegal in NY to put underglow on cars but im not sure about motorcycles. Can someone please let me know if its illegal for bikes or not?
