This is the first door handle so far, and its not even complete. Still need to wire up two more LEDs on this doors handle. Then I will move onto the other glowing parts of my door. I will take each door from its modified one color glow to its new and IMPROVED ICELED 2.1 MILLION color glow!!! I will link the doors together with their corresponding ICELED footwell. The ICE glow will flow from the feet all the way up the door. I have a lot of work to do, and it will probably take months to complete. I don' have much time with a full time job, and a second job just on saturdays. The challenge has started, and I plan to conquer it.

I'm using RGB LEDs tied into the ICE system by the flexidriver. I havene't actually completed or moved any further on the project. I will be soon. The holidays are so distracting.

Update: two doors now complete and only two more to go. Both driver side doors have been completed. I was going to put the driver door last but the door handle broke and needed replacing. Went ahead and converted it over to the new ICELED setup. I used four different types of LEDs in the driver door. I truly wish it wasn't such a distraction or I would drive with the doors turned on as well as the footwells. The driver door may still get some further mods seeing as the flexible LEDs strips used for the speaker is not as good as I was hoping for. Pictures will be posted sometime whenever I get Internet access again to my apartment. Using my iPod now on some else's Internet connection.

Wow, I haven't updated this post in a long time.
Unfortunately this project never got completed. Only two doors were ever done, and now i need to redo them cause things didn't work out so well.
I have started the project again and working on the third door, before going back to the first two to fix them.
I guess my solder job is not so good.

I did find a problem with two of my flexi-drivers. They appear to pulsate the lights during the times that they are fading between colors.
It seems like it will stop on each main color RGB and then fade to the next, but pulsate while fading.
Don't know why its doing that, and if i should seek out buying new ones instead of using these? any suggestions?

There won't be anything wrong with the Flexidrivers if they're giving you all the colours. What's controlling the colours?

Right now there is nothing controlling the colors as the door is being worked on inside of my house.
Once i'm done it will be put back into the car where my ZEN controller will control it.

Door three done, and the pulsating went away when i tried a different power converter.
Now I just need to order in more LEDs, and redo doors one and two and actually do door four.
This project has taken too long. I guess too many things to side track me.
