do you have a strut tower brace. That would be the best spot IMO.

yea but other than that spot idk where to put one. i dont have a stb but it would seem to me that it would be the only place to attach it to something. im not sure without looking at, 1)how big the LED strip is and 2) where possible mounting points are.

LEDs don't like heat so be careful of your placement, also cold cathodes done like extreme cold so be aware of that as well. I did have some red leds in there at one point (will probibly do again), but make sure they aren't right by a major source of heat.

I have a couple of 9" neons at the top of the radiator and a 15" or 18" on my strut tower brace.

I don't have any good close up shots of them. This one also shows the neons in the grill.
