Easy as pie.

1. Buy the light(s) of your choice.
2. Find hood switch.

Connect your ground wire from light to GREEN wire at hood pin switch.
3. Wire + from light to any 12v+ hot all the time. I tapped into the HORN fuse in the engine compartment fuse box.

Light will only go on when you pop hood...

Here is my led strip installed (off)...

My LED strip is actually white and looks white but for some reason it looks bluish in the pics. You could also add a switch to be able to turn it off and on as you like. Or you could just put something on top of the hood pin switch while you work. That will also turn the light off.

Awesome!! I need to do this. Everyone want to see under the hood for some reason... I'm guessing because it's "turbo"... but you cant even see the Turbo. My shiny CAI is nice to look at though.
