Search for "hyper leds" on ebay. They have a nice little store, buy cheap in bulk. As for the lighting, I can't help you there.

yeah just look up leds in general. in ebay you can get them for like 80% off what you would be paying at places like best buy. and they are just as bright too. to make you own underbodykit with that stuff you have to do the same as you would for the actuall underbody kits, beef up the wire, beef up the insulation, and KEEP IT AWAY FROM HOT SPOTS under your car, also protect the lights by attaching some sort of pexiglass from home depot. however i think in ebay you can also get the full underbody kit for way less than anywhere else.

are leds for the alarm or are they what you use for the lighted underbody?

I haven't seen much about wheel well light kits. Only seen one brand ever. I assume that they must break down pretty quickly or not work well. I think they'd be awesome to have if they worked fine. Can't go wrong with lighting up an entire car!

LEDs aren't that great for lighting up large areas.. (unless you get the hyper ones which cost $$$) I'd look into cold cathodes instead (not neon, cathodes, there is a difference)
