Custom LED Puddle Lights!

Hi everyone,
Thank you for your interest in my Puddle Lights! The lights are the same concept of the "Derwankel Puddle Lights" lighting. 194 LEDs are used for the bulbs. Pictures are below of what they look like. Please understand that the color is more subtle than the images show. Those are night shots of the colors I am shipping with my puddle lights.

$75 shipped with choice of blue/red/white/amber LEDs
PM me on more info to PayPal money to. I'll add you to the list below to confirm your order.

PayPal Payment Trans. ID #98U85*******3640W

UPDATE 12.03.07: Now shipping.

UPDATE 11.15.07: Added price and accepting pre-orders. I'm making the puddle lights this weekend and will be shipping them out next week. Those already on the list, please PM me on more info to PayPal money and let me know what LED color you want.

UPDATE 11.09.07: Everything is set except for my order for a gram scale to come in so I can make the clear part on the underside of the puddle light enclosure. I should receive this by next week so *crosses fingers* I hope to be taking orders by mid next week. Also, added photos of puddle lights with blue lighting.

UPDATE 10.19.07: I have the preliminary items finished. Here's 2 pictures of the finished molds I created. Only revision I need to do is find a better plastic (ie. withstand 300 degrees in black [for the main part of mold housing] and clear [for bottom piece where LED will shine light]). Also, I need to create instructions to install this.

I should have this hashed out by this weekend coming up as I am going to call a couple plastic manufactures to tell me what their recommendations is for a strong, thin plastic that can withstand 250-300 deg. I chose that high of degrees because I don't want it melting or accidentally warping on whomever is interested in this. Both sides fit snug in the side view mirror.

Other than that, they WILL be shipped with LEDs. Blue and White initially. Other colors upon request. They have enough wire to route from the side view mirror down to the curtesy light on the inside door panel and will tap into those wires with vampire clips.

UPDATE 10.26.07: Just ordered the casting resin for the molding today. I should have it by the end of next week (Nov. 1st or 2nd) and then I'll be able to produce them for you all. I'll be PMing you those who are listed with more information beginning of next week.

UPDATE 10.27.07: Added pictures of it installed.

UPDATE 10.04.07: Manufacture that I ordered for the plastic resin sent me the wrong amount so I can't open the jugs right now in case if they need me to send back the shipment. Waiting on their correspondence to correct this issue. On a good note though, the design is completed.

If you start selling to the masses you might have to become a vender.

Shazbot: make sure this is stricly a FEELER thread (aka development thread) since you'll be making these from scratch.

If / When you develop the product, you won't be able to sell to the masses unless you get the Group Buy Approved from an Admin or you become a Forum Vendor.

Depends on how many I can install around here.

Omnicron told me the GB price. I'm not sure yet if I can get it duplicated soon depending on if Jedi54 and I meet up sometime this week. It's only in the development phase but I'll keep people posted.

Can anyone tell me the difference between these and neon? I've read where everyone is blasting neon as too "rice", but isn't the end result the same.....lights emitting a glow from under the car? Not trying to be a smartass, I really want to know what the difference is.
