Each row is wired in series, but there will need to be a proper ground wire running from each row.
A couple weeks ago before this all started, I knew slightly more then squat about this stuff. Still don't know a lot, but getting close to what I need for this project.
Still need to get a schematic for the vans lighting system to figure out exactly how I'm going to hook everything into the van. It's going to be mounted under the dash and probably have a custom wiring harness that integrates into the van elec. The at this stage it'll be a one wire system out to the lights not counting ground.
