    Ideas needed !!

    Hi Peoples
    Im a bit stuck for ideas and don't know much about electronics ,

    I am trying to light up a boat for under $200 , All must be 12v waterproof(splashproof) and I want plenty of strobe / flashing type stuff. Personaly I want to go full circus look but the boat owner wants to stay "classy"
    This is for a prize of $1000.00 worth of tools that I want to win.

    This is what we are up against

    Do you have a idea what you want it to look like? Get that sorted and find led's to get the desired look. Otherwise its just a disco ball

    What is your timeframe? There are heaps of LED lights out there that are pretty cheap.

    Buy Car Head/ Tail Lights, Best Car Decoration Lights & HID/ Halogen Bulbs from Dealextreme - DX
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I do sort of know but I don't know what's available. The Led strip lights are probably the way I will go but was wondering what else is out there.

    That's a good site GM.....

    Does anyone know if you can use an indicator blinker unit off a car to get the light strips to flash???
