Justin: The Axial 36-inch LED Strips with the ColorSHIFT Controller will be a great way for any Mustang owner to add some additional custom lighting to the inside or outside of your ride, and would like the flexibility of having endless color options to switch between thanks again to the included controller. Now, price point for the single 36-inch strip will be right around 100 bucks. And the simple peel and stick install will get a solid one out of three wrenches on the old difficulty meter, take you about 30 minutes or so to complete from start to finish, depending on where you end up mounting this thing. But either way, guys, if you hang with me for a bit, we'll walk you through that job later in the video. Now, adding auxiliary or aftermarket lighting like this isn't always for everyone out there. But it is a fun and easy way to add a small amount of customization to a number of different areas. Now, in my opinion, I would say a vast majority of owners out there tend to throw these things up under the dash to act as sort of mood lighting or accent lighting, if you will, for the footwell area, kind of like what Ford started doing with the more recent cars and the MyColor feature typically found in the higher end or premium package options.Now, I've also seen some pretty other creative ways to install these LED strips, maybe as a puddle light underneath the car, in the trunk to showcase maybe some stereo equipment, or even under the hood. So, again, you have a lot of options here with these things. And basically, you can choose wherever you wanna mount them, thanks to their peel and stick design. Now, speaking of options, that's definitely gonna be the big draw here with this particular option from Axial. Again, the RGB controller basically allows you to select endless color options, thanks to the controller and also the included module. Now, this of course will allow you to choose the standard colors out there but also get creative with some of the in-between colors, but also adding things like dimming, strobing, and a very cool effect called breathing, which is basically a slow pulse that again, I think looks really neat when in action. So, yes, this is gonna be a little bit more dough compared to the standard colors like red or blue for instance. But again, you are getting a lot more features in the process, and a lot more customization.Now, as far as your actual construction is concerned, again, you will be receiving 1 strip 36-inches in length, containing a number of high-intensity LEDs. And believe me when I tell you here, gang, these things are very bright once installed and fired up. In fact, don't believe me, check out the numerous customer submitted images on this product. Now, each strip is very flexible, which means you can bend or shape these things to help you fit the portion of your car you are trying to install these on. And again, thanks to that peel and stick installation on the back, you get the 3M tape back there already, very easy to slap this just about everywhere or anywhere I should say maybe minus some carpet, but outside of that, you have a lot of options with your mounting. Now, on top of that another cool thing worth mentioning, I don't know if a lot of guys out there will do this, but you can actually trim the size of these strips down a little bit. Basically meaning if you'd like to make more strips in the process or changing the length maybe to fit smaller areas, you have that option.Essentially, what you're gonna do is maybe turn this one into two, two into four and so on simply by cutting them in the designated areas. If you look very closely, you'll see a little scissor diagram, that's where you're gonna wanna cut and at that point, you simply have to solder in a new set of wires to each individual strip. So, not necessarily the easiest thing to do if you're not good with wiring, soldering, things like that, but you do have that option. On the other hand, you can simply just leave this as a single piece. That is totally up to you at the end of the day. Last but not least, since this is the RGB option, we've included the module for you guys in addition to your remote control here which will allow you to switch between modes in colors on the fly easily here with this strip. Now, we wanna get into the installation and give you kind of a better idea of what you're in for. Yes, some very light wiring involved with this job here but it's not really hard. So, sit back relax, check out our detailed walkthrough and quick tool breakdown right now.Man: The tools used for this install are an impact driver or ratchet, 10-millimeter socket, wire strippers and crimpers, and a heat source. So, the first step of this install is going to be installing the connector to the end of the wires on the end of the light strip. We're gonna mount this thing up underneath our hood for some car show lighting. However, you can mount this light strip anywhere in your vehicle that you want. By doing so though, you may have to extend your power and ground wires to accommodate your desired mounting location. But I'm gonna walk you through how this works and how it hooks up to your battery. So, let's get started. So, I'm gonna be using some heat shrink butt connectors that are the appropriate size for this gauge of wire. If you desire to, you can solder them together if you want using a soldering iron and some solder, but for the demonstration purposes, I'm just gonna use some heat shrink butt connectors.So, I've got all my butt connectors crimped onto my wires. Now I'm gonna take my little handheld torch, but you can also use a heat gun, and I'm just going to shrink the heat shrink before I install the light strip onto the vehicle. So, like I said before, we're gonna be installing our light strip underneath our hood for a bit of car show lighting effect. So, what I'm gonna do now is just peel back the 3M backing on the light strip and I'm gonna stick it to the bottom of my hood and then I can run my wires over to my battery. Now, I'm just gonna plug in my connector to the control box which also hooks up to our battery. And then I can take my 10-millimeter socket and loosen up the battery terminals so that I can install the eyelets on the end of the controller. Now that all the connections are made and everything's working properly, I can just take some of my wires and zip tie them up out of my way so they're nice and neat. And that's gonna wrap up this review and install of the Axial flexible 36-inch LED strip with RGB ColorSHIFT Controller, fitting your '79 and newer Mustang.
