Interior Lights Mod Completed

It took me Saturday afternoon into the night, giving up with the problem I had. Before I was done for the night, I figured out what was wrong. The lights wouldn't come on on passenger seat, but the driver seat would. I figured out what it was, it was the ground wire that was not fully connected. While figuring out what was wrong, I hooked up the driver seat for the first time, and I had a little mishap. I took the inverter apart for some reason, and I hooked up the power to it, and I had the circuit board of inverter right on my hand and it electrouced me. lol Fun mistake. [:P]

I finished the rest on Sunday, but I forgot to stick the inverter up on the seat, so right now they're on the floor, but not noticeable in pictures.

Here's my ride...


And the lights on the inside...




This one is really an eyesore (passenger side), it bothers my eyes when driving at night. Any suggestion? I don't think there's any place for me to put the cathode in a better place.


And the master......

The green thing is a fuse puller.

I will make the switches look better, but I'm not done yet. I will be adding prewired LED's in those vents, and maybe add another switch or connect it to the footwells switch. There are two switches, one is for footwells, and other is for under the seats. I might add the vents light to the footwells switch, or add another. I'm not sure yet. I might add another switch if the passenger side will not move.

So, the next mods will be LED Flex Strip in the trunk and LED's in the vents.

My driver side is fine, but the passenger side is not.

I actually have my passenger side bulb hanging from wires and such, so that the bulb would not be visible as it is on yours. I just used electrical tape to hang it, lol. I reinforced the driver's side with electrical tape also.

there is a lip under the glove compartment, i drilled a couple holes in that and secured it that way... as for the switches you can make a nice little faceplate for that lame cd holder....

Hmm, hanging it from wires...that's a great idea, actually! I will try to find a time and way to hang it!

I used velcro to stick them on, I used alcohol rubbing to clean the surface. And so far, it works good! Let's hope it doesn't fall during summer! If it does, then I will use electrical tape.

There's this third prong, you can see in the last picture, it's to illuminate the rocker switch, but how do I do that? Wire them to the ground?
