    Default Added a courtesy boot light. Now have two blue ones

    Decided to put another courtsey light in the boot and change to 6 LED Festoon bulbs.

    It all part of my ongoing boot lighting mod which is almost complete now.

    It was dead easy to do. The worse part was the first cut into the side of the cloth but fom then on it was plain sailing.

    Thanks Big Red. Yep I agree. The boot has to have more lights. I have gone a bit mad on mine. I will post up a night time pic or two tonight and you will see what I mean

    As promised here are some night time pics but taken with an iPhone 3gs so the quality is not perfect by any means.

    I can't show you the full effect of the two lights (on their own) as I have quite a few x36 and x48 smd led boards in there, but hopefully you will get the gist.

    Hope you like them.

    Thanks for that mate.

    I must admit I have gone quite mad with LED's and SMD LED boards.

    I have a few more to add yet. Im thinking of red in the cubby holes each side of the boot.

    I'm also planning kerb lighting on the front doors in blue. Have all the parts just planning on telling the GF that I will be working on the car again another weekend very soon

    Here is how the boot is looking at the moment. Please excuse the mess in there. Just did not get time to clean the boot out today.
