    confused footwell lighting question

    sooo i just bought illuminated sun visors and the rear lights for my veccie... and with me obviously having the take the headlining off im thinking i may aswell get the wiring for the footwell lighting in at the same time...
    my question is..

    is it just wires i need to run to front and the back or do i need resistors or anything to company the lights im putting in?

    also for the rear footwell lighting would i still just take the wires from the front panel or would i be able to do it from the rear on :S

    and finalllyyyyy will this bring up any errors on my dash due to more lights being added to the same circuit or would it be okay?

    Thanksss in advance

    would that mean that the lights would be permantly on? or would they come on and off with the standard interior light?

    oh i would want it to come on automatically with the interior light rather than having it on all the time or have a switch to turn on and off but thanks dudee do appreciate the replies

    looking at the how to everything seems pretty straight forward just wondering if i should take all the wires from the front interior light or the front footwell from front interior and rear footwell from rear interior light? Did you put any resistors or anything in or just wires from lights to footwell lights?

    thanksss

    ohhh and will fitting footwell lights bring up errors on my dash of any kind?

    or fitting SMD's to my roof interior light will that bring up any errors?
    or are is the dash errors only linked to the exterior lights?

    thankss dude's and dudettes
