    Forget it. It won't make it any better as it'll still be in the wrong place to illuminate the boot area properly. You need to be fitting LEDs elsewhere in the boot that uses the electrical feed from the original one.

    Just get some LED strips off ebay - usually £2-£3 for 2, lots of colours around depending on what you want - something like this should do the job - I wouldn't get any over 24 LEDs as they are too long (made that mistake the first time I did them! ) - swapped them for the shorter ones and it worked much better.

    I just changed my white ones for blue to match the sub & the rest of the car, but haven't got pics yet as it was still light - will try and get some pics tonight once it gets dark

    Have a look here to see what I started to do then went of at a different angle. Might give you some ideas.
