It's not really the traditional style of a mustang. I personally would only use LED's to replace bulbs in factory locations. Interior mood lighting can be done tastefully. But even that can be a bit overkill.

I've thought about something like this before, but i considered wiring the LEDs into the turn signal circuit so they blink when I'm turning. As far as how to do it....just get an led strip that has 3M mounting tape or something of the like, then stick it where you want. Then just route the wires to where you want to splice them into. Most people use the running light circuit that comes on when your lights are on. Share pics you decide to do it!

I purchased LED valve caps they turn only when it's dark and if the rim is spinning they look pretty nice at night easy installation

A friend pulled a prank on me once and put flashing led valve stem caps on my car while at a car meet one night. I didn't realize till after driving to another spot and everyone was laughing at me. It was hilarious.

I lol'd pretty hard.
Im considering some blue glow under the hood (see link, below) and tying it to blue lower fogs that come on when you unlock or with a dedicated on/off. I want a GT500 style bumper with those beautiful fogs, but dont want to lose my grille fogs and dont need anymore driving lights, so thinking it would be a cool use for em. Maybe with some tinted covers so to avoid having to explain their function to a cop.
