Hello everyone, please tell me, no one had any ideas to make a backlight under the radiator grille? This may be an idiotic idea, but the Yukon Denali has an awesome grille, which, it seems to me, will be coolly illuminated from the inside. I tried to put a few diode tapes inside, and I understand that it will probably be cool when a lot of diodes shine from the inside ... Let's discuss

You may want to try having the led strip go around the edges of the grill and glowing back towards the radiator to give it a glow without showing the led strip itself. I think it would look nice. Just my thoughts

Yes, it was precisely these thoughts that there were several rows of bright diode tapes, above, below and on the sides, so that they were not visible

I also experimented with neon tape, but more or less beautiful for my taste, it's a thin line at the bottom of the grille, and a thin line between the grille and the hood

If you went the neon tape, i would go around the entire grille. I think it would tie in with the DRL lights really well that way. Just my opinion.

Yes, that.is what i was thinking. Not sure how hard it would be to actually do that though.
