champjfocus How do you connect them back together once cut into separate strips?

iniquitous I'm definitely gonna do something like this w/ my '08 SE...but I have this thing where I like things to be the same on both sides. So I'll definitely do four with two on each side, lol.

My guess is that it got moved here accidentally when they separated the forums by generation.

Sniper Focus I took a chance with a LED bulb from VLED's. Before I bought them I planned on using both bulbs that came in the pair by using a rectangle trunk light on the passenger side, but there was no need to.

Here's my before and after...

Stock:


With LED:


If you look directly at the bulb (without it filtered through the housing) it will blind you!

VonKrause nope just plastic screws that hold on that plastic panel. Would be interesting to have a bunch of speakers back there though

BowerR64 For what? When you get the lights from walmart they come in a longer 12" strip i wanted the lights spread out around the trunk area a little more so i cut them into 3 LED sections. If you do this you have to solder them back together.

You may find a plug on e-bay that you can push into the rear trunk socket and then poke the wires into from there.

I created my own plug because i didnt want to cut and splice the stock setup incase i wanted to put it all back how it was stock. Back seats back in, back panel and stock bulb. It was cleaner and easier IMO.
