Following from these threads :-
I started tonight on a whim to see if I could create kerb lighting on the door cards.
I have a full preface SRi interior to practice on so I thought why not.
Got hold of the passenger doorcard from the shed and got my tools out
I first off nicked the glove box light housing out of my facelift to cut down. I will re wire a led board in there anyhow.
The offending prefaclift passenger doorcard (my test subject)
Cut down the sides of the glove box light housing with a dremel to only a few mil
After the first cut. Some filling will need to be done.
Time to dremel the doorcard! Here goes nothing ....
Ok thats done but looks very messy. Thats where the filling begins ...
Before a trial fit I need to file the sides of the light housing.
After that i needed to file the doorcard to smooth it out a bit.
Trial fitted the light housing. fitted very nicely i might add
Now to test it out with a led board and a 9v battery. (best I could tonight but will give me a good idea how it could turn out)
Cellotape used to the mas to hold everything in.
Im liking this
And for the final result
This did take me around 40 mins to complete and it is just a trial fit. I do like it so I just have to work out where the best place is for the cable runs.
Oh and also the down lights from the door cards will be blue as I have so much white going on in the interior.
Hope this helps others.
