    With leds all you need to match up is that they are 12v and those are.

    Wonder how they'd look under the hood instead of the hood light.

    the only problem you will have with them is stripping and connecting those itty bitty wires. FYI its easer to melt the insulation off when its that thin and don't bother with crimp connections, you will want to solder it

    Usually with those thin wires I will just use my fingernail and strip it. I have thick nails so it usually works. lol

    I am normally soldering them since its about the only way too connect it so I just touch the wire where I want to strip it with the iron to melt the insulation and then pull.

    Don't forget to put in a switch so you can turn them on/off.
    I assume you'll be removing the stock mercury switch.
