step 4: replacing the bulbs. it doesn't really matter how you put them back in. i personally put the metal back in its place and then put the bulb in. but whatever works for you is fine.

finally: reverse all the steps to take the map light out and you could get a result like this



I really like how they look. They shine bright enough at night to which it isn't overbearing. I'll be sure to put pictures up of the night time later.
Can you reupload the pics? :)
