Default LED's under the hood?

I'm thinking of installing a bright LED strip to the underside of the hood for those times that I'm under the hood at night

Anyone do this?

I found a kit online:

https://www.amazon.com/Check-Auto-Un.../dp/B00FW1K12Y

Looks decent. Only thing I'm concerned about is you know....the LED's melting due to heatsoak, which seems to be more of a problem in our cars. The kit says that the LED's are covered in some sort of heat/water proof resin. Just wanted to get other opinions

I donít think Iíd bother. I have a decent LED trouble light and always have a campers headlamp on which is a trick i got from watching aviation mechanics working on aircraft...
