New rear seating dome(kinda) light

After putting some LEDS with my headlights I also ordered some 2 1/2" LED strips from Oznium and they were perfect for what I wanted to do since the focus has not rear dome light.

And since I had one left over I decided to redo my hatch light since my speaker box is covering my stock one. I circled it in green for the picture. I have purposely left it loose to I can adjust it in case I need a rear light to work with.

I will take some pics later with some night shots so I can see how bright they are inside the car.

I have some custom switches inside of my center console. I thought about making a switch in the back seat of the car so a passenger could flip it but I decided to put in in there with my other 2 switches for my vent LEDs and my amps kill switch.
I mounted them from behind the headliner trim (hard plastic piece) that goes around the door. I drilled a hole for each LED and pushed them thru the holes. After looking at the dimples for each LED I knew I had to do it. It just worked out so well.
Here is a shot with the LED's turned off.

Not the best pictures but this is what they look like lit up right now. Gives off ample light for the rear now.

That's assume! Nice clean install, hope you don't mind if I steal your idea.
Not at all. Its the reason I post them.
Yeah, I opted to just go with one on the driver side. I knew from how much light they put out under my head lights that I would only need one.
On a side note. My Father used to live in UP. He lives in Tacoma now. I used to live there myself a long time ago.
No, I already had the 2.5" Nippled LED's from when I bought the 9" strips for the headlights. There was no point in buying others. This way I was able to flush them into the door trim.
