    Default boot light leds

    Have done the mod with led strips either side of boot a while ago but still wasn't pleased with the light, so tonight with one spare strip added a third led strip in middle of parcel tray along the middle rigged edge stuck on with double sided tape and WOW it is lit up well now. will post some pics later.

    Thought of doing that with mine but seeing as I often have the seats down and parcelshelf removed (daughters horse feed and wood shavings), I couldn't be bothered with the constant connecting and dis-connecting

    Be nice to see what it looks like though

    I screwed a ground kit neon tube to the parcel shelf in my astra, and put a connector on one end. was easy to then disconnect when seats where down.

    Have wired mine from the existing light in the boot and tucked the wires behind the plastic panel parallel to the bumper and behind the back of the side compartments.... Works really well as like you Im taking the parcel shelf in and out all the time.

    If there is any interest Ill post some photos

    Have done exactly the same mate on mine but couldn't be bothered with the agro of disconnecting the wires all the time if I had a third strip along the base of the parcel shelf itself.

    Quite happy with the amount of light with just the two either side but I may be swayed into fitting another to the parcelshelf

    Many thanks for the offer though
