I have the blue tubes, underneath and inside. None installed yet, they were taken off of my civic when i sold it now they're sitting in my basement. Will do the interior ones, but not sure if I will do the underbody kit or not yer. Atleast it won't be for awhile.

The black is the ground yes, i assume your putting the leds under your dash or something like that. There are quite a few "metal" parts but you can actually attach it to one that isn't grounded to the body. I attached my ground to this piece here: (the two pieces with electrical tape around them, just strip the last inch or so of the wire, and fray some of the strands of copper and spread over the grounded metal, and electrical tape in place)

Why don't you ground it right and drill a small hole in the metal, and put a wire end on the wire and attach it with a screw?

no prob, the highlighted metal pieces are near the steering column, you can get to em by removing the plastic "knee guard" or whatever you call it, lol

so does it maybe have to do with the add a fuse? bc it says 2-10 amps of power and the led kit itself needs at least 10 amps. maybe it not getting enough power?
