I like the under the dash light Idea but it seems like it's too bright. Not sure if the camera/ picture makes it seem that way or not.

I like how bright the trunk is.

I'm not sure how I feel about the headlights though.


Seems like some good ideas overall.

It was night so camera went to night mode... it's bright but not that much!

Anyway those lights are only on when car is unlocked or door opened so when you start the engine they turn off.


Picture taken during day:










thank you for your comment

What is the under dash light use for? Snakes? Spiders?
Nice floor mats!
What is the black box in the rear trunk?

Plenty of punch for that size (200w rms Pionner TS-SWX251) plus you wont know its a subwoofer ;)

I like to see some additional lightning inside the car, previous ford single blue led module was too weak. I think 2013+ came with a light bulb instead.

Thanks! Best 120$ floor mats i've seen!


I'd like to add that regarding the brightness of the strips... yes it's bright but the light is directed on the floor so you aren't blinded ;)

I'd be careful with the blue lights. Not sure what the laws are up North but I know most states don't allow blue lights at all. Otherwise I think it looks awesome

It's a gray area... in Quebec blue is tolerated as long as it's not flashing...

You remind me, i planned to go to the states this summer... hell yeah i'm gonna be pulled over!

I will remove them tomorrow.

eBay

I've seen the weather-tech... they don't cover that much the dead pedal area that's why i choose the max spider. damn they look great with the "carbon" finish!!

If you live in US it will be cheaper , I've seen 99$ free shipping for the front on some website.

How did you get the lights to only come on before you start the engine? What did you wire them into?
