    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 130k

    Default A cheap 10 min mod

    Decided to give these a try in the boot

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2X24cm-24-...item2a187ee760

    Got the first side done in ten mins which includes fitting two spade connectors and attaching little tiny double sided sticky pads then fitting in the boot.

    Its very easy to do.

    Just have to "cough cough" clear the boot our so I can run the cable to the other side.

    I may get a blue strip as well in the middle somewhere to give it a nice tint.

    I have the led boards in all the footwells (x48 white) and they work well.

    I'm sure you could fabricate something to hold the boards in place.

    That would look better than what I have done. Now why did I not think of that

    Now thats intersting to hear. Going to see how they last. If they don't then I will just buy something else and try again. At a touch under 3 quid I don't mind experimenting.

    Cheers for the info though
