    Radioshack out of business! Picked up a ton of stuff

    So it turns out radio shack is going out of business and some of the locations are being bought by sprint or whatever. Everything is 50-70% and some stuff like small electronic parts are even more. For instance i picked up a ton of switches, relays, resisters, for a buck! Normally there 5-6 bucks each. On top of that picked up a heat gun, solder iron, wire loom, wire that lights up! Now i just need to figure out how to wire in lights that turn on when the car turns on

    I wanna wire in a ton of leds, so some wiring is in order. Where should i pull power from? I can pull it from my distro block? Then run all thegrounds from the leds and switches to the ground on the distro
