    Default Boot light

    As the early night are starting to draw in, I thought that the light in the boot was not very bright.

    I bought some LED strip lights and decided to wire these to the existing light in the hope that they would shed a bit more light at night time

    I was quite impressed at the result.

    What do you guys and gals think (the round thing at the right is an air freshner, not a bulb)

    Did similar some time ago, but some of the LEDs are starting to fail. Cheap China crap.

    These are the ones I bought http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2608361589...84.m1439.l2649 and as I only used about 2/3 of a metre, I have loads left incase of any failures etc.

    Now, where shall I put the rest.

    Envy - Like what you have done - given me a few ideas that I may have to follow through
