Get This Look: Pedro’s 2020 Art Car

While the city parades may have been canceled this year, there are no rules about making a parade of your own.

All you need are a few strings of 12-volt Christmas lights and a handful of common-sense techniques for non-marring installation of the lights. Using car accessory plugs eliminates the need for an additional battery or inverter.

These cars all feature the multi color lights on green wire.

Installation Tips

Note, the installations for these cars were for short term events. For longer-term installation, be aware of how the lights are rubbing your car’s clear coat. (For the month of December, we love to wrap a luggage platform with lights and greenery. No contact with paint involved. Photos coming soon!)

Try to use windows and natural seams to hold the lights in place. Low adhesive painter’s tape on glass is an option for securing lights to windows if there are no special films installed. (Again, always good to test.)

Installing the lights inside the car with painter’s tape is also a good tip shared with us.

Planning to light a car or truck this season? We’d love to see your photos!! or tag us on social media. @christmaslightsource

Pedro’s Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have received the lights thank you so much for being a great business to work with. I’ve already spread the name around and shared links. I’m really impressed by your product, I’ve had the idea to put Christmas lights on my car for a while but I am glad that you guys made it possible. I hope to do more business in the future. – Pedro N
