Best look for these flexible DRL's ?

Flexible waterproof led light strips were an impulse buy, but a DRL harness is so cheap I want to fit these on a Mk6 Transit. They're only 3mm wide once they're sandwiched between the headlight and panels, so they should look pretty slick. Before I go and remove the bumper and put them in properly, which way should I fit them ?

Over the top looks a bit stupid imho. Wrap around the inside / outside ?

Can anyone suggest a good example van (of any model) to look at ?

Anyone think this might be a good idea or know of an example of one that looks good ?

Seeing as you have bought them now I suppose you are eager to fit them.

I deffo prefer these types of DRL... not telling you to buy these, just typed in DRLs in eBay and looked for the first one of this type...

and then cut holes into the bump strips on the front bumper. Now that would look class.

I've never been a fan of strip lights like what you have shown, but if are deffo going to fit them, then perhaps fold them in half and have like a double strip to fit somewhere, so they look a bit wider

Or perhaps buy a set of DRLs like I have linked to, and use the strips inside the van somewhere.
