i would like to see the LED strips effect on ground closely,like keeping them at the height of cars under body level & seeing the effect on ground.The thing why i hate LED under car lights is because the light doesn't appear well distributed,it shows dark spot just below the LED & fades & again the dark spot & continues.I hope you get what i am trying to say.
But i hope you have over come this as you have used more no of LED's & reflective material.
Would also like to see the wiring diagram & connection etc as i am really looking forward to try this myself.
single row can make the spot. Closely packed double row elimiated the spottin issue, but aligning the LED's in straight line is big headache. I had 160 LED in one side. Aluminium foil was used as reflector. Base is flat conduit pipe used for electrical wiring.
Regarding for any color other than white and blue connect connect four LED and one resistor in series and then connect all thethe units of 4 leds in parallel. put a 2 amp fuse and switch in between and connect to power source.
For blue and white connect three in series with a resistor.
For red, resitor value is 100 ohm.

How much does this cost for you ?
For fog lamp [driving light]
LED - 51x2 x Rs. 1.5 = 127.5
PCB - Rs. 40.
Resistor - 68 x Rs. 0.5 - 34
2 small bowls [for base] = 2 x 15 = Rs. 30
round cut plexi glass for cover = Rs 20.
horn clamp for making custom mounting - Rs. 12
Wire, fuse, and switch - Rs. 35.
Total - 298.5
Regarding spot underbody.
LED [red] - 4 [LED per unit] x 16 [units - 5 each side and 3 each front nd back ] x Re.1 = Rs. 64
Resistor - 16 x Rs. 0.5 = Rs. 8
PCB = Rs. 20.
Wire, switch, resistor, fuse, 3M double-sided tape = Rs. 100.
total = Rs. 192
LED strips [not VFM
from DIY standpoint]
LED [160 per side, 100 each front and back] = Rs 520
Resistor - Rs 130.
Conduit pipe [3 tubes - one each side and half each for front and rear] = 3 x 60 = Rs. 180
Aluminium foil for reflector = Rs. 50.
Wiring and mounting = Rs. 200.
Plexiglass for cover = Rs. 150.
Total - Rs. 1230.
