LED lighted headliner

Okay so you guys know that my headliner looks like this:

(not the most recent)

At night i can imagine that the headliner having like a moonlight glow. so i want to achive that.

Im looking to buy 5 blacklight LED's single bulbs.

I have no clue what im looking for here.. and the cheapest i found was 1.99 on amazon each... i though LED's were cheap? f***

Then im looking for a small dimmer switch that i want to install down near the steering wheel.... like below the column but on that lower dash area. so a small black dimmer so i can control the blacklight that is emitting from these.

How do i wire these to make them all the same brightness and run off the dimmer? i cant imagine it... I know it would be a pain... but can you draw a picture? im going to try to draw one too... to see if my idea is right. but would i be wiring up in parellel or in series? series will cause them all to spilt power and parrellel wouldnt right?

would i need any resistors or anything of the sort?

what power line should i be thinking of taping into?

and then the ground.... just anywhere on the chassis?

does either of these look right? sorry if they are terrible or wrong... im just guessing
