hey just wondering about air vents,

is there anyway to get in the airvents? like the two in the middle and the two on the side? because i plan to put some red led lights in there, that way, when i turn on the flip switch, light comes out lol, unless it would short the lights out from the temp changes, but i dont think it would. so any comments or hints?

Cut them out at an angle and when you reinstall them use some epoxy. They arent removable I odnt think anyways. I tried a couple times and gave up on them.

The only way I've heard to get in there is to dismantle the whole dash... no thanks to that.

2 hours? thats it?!?!? it took me forever.... i should have thought of that coat hook thing =/ but as for the airvents, i dont think im going to mess with them, my fingers hurt to much from pulling shit apart in my car, god help me if i tried the air vents. quick question, you can usually put as many leds on one switch and it wont hardly affect the 12 volt source at all right? because i still want to be able to use my 12 volt car adapter that i tapped into and i dont want to strain it and blow a fuse or somthing.

Taking off the dash is the only way to get in there, unless you want wires hanging everywhere. I have already put LED's in all of my vents and the dash actually wasn't that hard to take off but I also had an air ratchet and a friend to help.

How would positive touch a ground and "short" if the temp changes? An electrical short happens when positive touches negative. What do you mean?
