Just have a electrical question.. I have a couple LED underbody lights that are collecting dust in the garage and thought they would make a nice addition to the new air hockey table.. my question is what if anything would need to be done electrically to be able to run the lights on a standard household outlet instead off of a car's 12v battery?

Easiest thing would be to buy a cheap ac to dc power converter. Here is what I am talking about: http://www.amazon.com/Sunforce-AC-DC-Power-Converter/dp/B000FIY08U Possibly even something like this: http://www.amazon.com/SEM-AC-DC-Wall-Plug-Adapter/dp/B000EG8RIM/ref=pd_sim_auto_5

or use a computer PSU if you have one around.

I've wondered this too, since I have my old orange LED's from the GA... was going to install them under my beer pong table, but now that I'm outta school, its not really "cool" to have BP tables any more. Maybe I can build a bar or something... Ha, that'd be pretty cool too, since I have the wireless remotes lol

those would work with interior lights that plugged into the cig lighter.. but what about for underbodies that are wired instead of plug-in?

You can get a plug fairly cheaply or scrap a 12v accessory that has one. But the computer power supply that was suggested about would be a good idea also. Just depends on which ever idea is easier to materialize for you.
