justanotherZX3 I installed some blue led bars in my footwell and under my seats. I like it only when you can see the glow from the lights and not the lights themselves. I adds a bit of class. And i just ran speaker wire straight from my lights to my battery.
Ill get some pics up to show you.

CapnGnarly Another idea for power for you (in case you felt like giving it a shot):

I used two vampire clips behind the dash on the cig lighter. I took those and ran them parallel to my switch for my floor neon. Very clean, keeps the dash from having a wire hanging down from it, and keeps the cig lighter open for phone/GPS/radar power.

I used 18g wires off the vampires, then everything was just run behind dash and along the carpet seam to the lamps.

biomed2008 how would I change the dome lights to LEDs? Can I use a normal LED with a resistor, or are there LEDs that will fit right in the socket?

rebelboy6121987 i bought some leds from pepboys, and a cigarette adapter. after installing the lights i spliced all of them to together and hooked them to the cigarette adapter. i plan on getting more for the back seats so the whole interior will be blue at night. i need to figure out some locations to drill the holes for the leds though... any ideas...its a 2008 coupe

bluefront FWIW..... When I do similar projects, I always use a separate fuse for the new circuit. The idea for fusing is to use a fuse rated just slightly higher than the current draw of the new stuff.

If you use the cig lighter fuse circuit, without a separate fuse for the new lights, the cig fuse has a rating way higher than the current draw of the lights. That means that it will take much longer for the fuse to blow if there's a short in the lights. And that risks burned wiring in the light harness, rather than a blown fuse.

You can tap into the cig fuse circuit.....but add a separate fuse holder and use a fuse rated much less than the cig fuse. A 3A fuse for LEDs is usually plenty.

slydarkwolf I did the same with mine as skinna, I will post a pic soon. However Instead of splicing into the radio harness, I have a mini project, that once I put my gauge pod in I can finish. I wired the lights into the Dome light, so when the car turns off and the door opens the lights come on. When the door closes the lights slowly fade off.

I found that switches are a pain. You will leave them on at least once a month.

joshfink ya know I didn't know sanding down the heads of the led bulbs would allow for more light to disperse out... I am gonna do that cause I got like 4 LEDs in each vent ... lol sanding inside the vents is gonna suck cause I glued `em down lol.

Sn4ckM4st3r ^^ All my pics are somewhere got to remember where LMAO. :(

But yes what you see here is a PRIME example of what it will do for you.
