here is how i did it, got the scanner light on ebay (link below), stacked the sticks of leds on top of each other, so it looks like 2 rows of leds, placed a frosted white plexi lens, and a red lens in front of the white one, keep the leds 1 inch away from the plexi lenses, and now you got the KR3000 scanner glow. if you put the leds too close to the lenses it looks like led dots. And the scanner is controlled by remote control.

I made my own bracket, used double stick 3m tape to hold the leds to the aluminum "L" shaped bar, then screw it down. The plexiglass I bought it at plexiglass shop, I had them precut.

the problem i was having with halogens, when i would do car shows, i couldnt leave the scanner on for a long time, if I dead is started melting the scanner lens, and the scanner gets very hot,i would also have to start my car once in awile so it wouldn't drain the battery. I am part of a StarCars group and we do shows every month. With LEDS i dont have to worry about battery drain or melting lenses.

I see, was that brenons scanner?
I had mine running a good 6 hours off a leisure battery at a show, always good to have a spare one then you dont have to use the main battery Smile

That looks VERY cool Alex, I love it. I prefer the original style scanner for KITT but that would look superb on a new KR Mustang.
