Why don't these cables reach my entire roof? 😅
Believe it or not many starlight kits out there come with cables that are NOT long enough for you to reach all areas of your roof!
Many kits especially amazon ones are designed to be installed on car's and NOT a quad cab truck, therefore they come with 10 ft cables or less!
We found most trucks needed 12 ft, or you might end up having a partially lit roof like the photo below...
It's supposed to be white but its purple?
More often than not products such as Rock lights, Starlight & Wheel Lights will be advertised as having "white" when it really looks more like purple.
If you want a true white in your kit then make sure you see enough pictures or videos of the product in action before purchasing!
Is a 20 Watt Kit Enough?
Most Starlight Headliner Kits on the market use either a 16W or 20W light engine.
The more wattage your light engine can produce = the brighter your stars will be, assuming your cable transmits the light without dissipation along the way.
Cheaper quality fiber optic cables will lose a lot of the light along the way making the result at the end of the cable much dimmer.
We use a beefy 50 Watt light engine to power our kits along with Premium 0.75 mm diameter cable to ensure that our kits are as bright as they could possibly be!
I know that there's a shit ton of options out there on the web...
But I hope this helps you get the kit that is best suited for your build!
