Hello what did you use in the ICE car for the lighting so that it fits in your bracket?

Hi!

I bought quite big SMD-LED's to solder myself, but today I don't do that anymore for projects as they are so cheap to buy pre-wired on eBay:

Here you have one example but there are many different so check out different sellers, just search "pre-solder SMD-LED".
I would suggest buying as small as possible because they allow you to create fantastic scale details and they are so bright you can use them also for headlights. They often come with resistors and you can try how bright they shine with those but they can be a bit high resistance to allow 12V operation so using them with 3,3V or 5V you could change to a lower resistance.
