    Theres 2 inch worth of wire between the ribbon block and the circuit board if you drop the light... The bulb holder way just doesn't seem as permanent to me, much prefer to solder in to the wires...

    Yeah better to solder on, will look tomorrow, just need to work out how to do the roof lining for rear area so theres one strip in that area. Should i make holes or dont do rooflining?

    I know i dont have the bracket already in place in the estate. Cos its dark now, getting annoying that its dark to put harness on our baby in chair.

    Yeah i used speaker wire...

    You can drop the roof lining to see if you have the rear light ribbon, if not use the same feed and put the speaker wire to a rear light also, can remember the exact pins for the rear light (if buy the gen vauxhall one) but there's 4 to choose from and a thread for retro fitting the rear light is flying about somewhere without pics IIRC...

    Can i use ...

    http://www.ebay.in/itm/-/130718979660

    To connect the wiring up? This is without soldering the wires.

    Maybe you could show me one that'll be better as i'll need to make 5 wires to go to 5 areas from 1 wire. Or use a block to connect them all up?

    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Elegance CDTi 120

    Engine : 1.9

    Year : 05

    Default

    I connected mine to one of the bulb holders for the 2 main internal lights, one wire per side and then added a second from the connector block that I put in the footwell to the rear. Ran the wires under the headlining, down the side trim to teh front footwells. Then alomg the side of the sills to the rear seats. Speaker wire ans standard chocolate block connectors did the job fine.
