I did this about a month and a half ago. i drilled out the holes and glued the leds in place. Only did one per cup holder. Now you got me wanting to throw another one in them. hmmmm
and i got an eap center console and used the switch holes for my own toggle switch for these leds, and another one for my floorboard leds.

is the wiring for these similar to an LED strip? just running a + and - wire from each bulb and run them to a switch, and ground?

Yes, or you can wire them in series and take the ground from the first led and attach it to the positive of the next, and repeat with all leds. Then you should be left with one ground off the last led.

yeah, i will try to post up some soon. i might be able to snap some on monday. work is crazy and weekends (my days off) are never really days off or time to relax

edit: and like i said, i wired mine completely different than these instructions. but the wiring is actually pretty basic.
