Hi everyone, I thought of installing a set of colored halos into headlights and fog lights. I want them to be pale red, not extremely bright. Right under the rear headlight edge I'm planning to do a line with tiny LEDs. Here is the pic where I tried to draw my project by myself:

Arrows point the actual mods. And here is the pic of the color I want:

Pic taken from this site - https://www.carid.co...ery/ford/f-350/  and that's an F-350.

 

So here are the questions that I wanted to ask you folks:

1. Which halo rings are better and will give that pale red glowing effect - LED or CCFL?

2. Do I need any sort of inverter or resistor? Or modern halos already come with everything needed wired in?

3. About those tiny bulbs (see the black arrow). I know that I will have to drill. What is the best way to insulate the LEDS to prevent plastic from melting? As I know LEDs reveal a lot of heat...
