    Default Soft footwell lighting

    Is it possible to fit some courtesy footwell lights which have the soft lighting you get from the roof lights?

    Run the wires along the wiring tunnels either side of the floor and up either the sides of the dash or the plastic in the boot, above the roof lining and to the interior light.

    You can solder onto the circuit board wires, there's 2" available between the ribbon block and circuit board, you need the solid brown and white/brown for the lights...

    I used led strips for mine but if I where to re do it I would use something like Taffy said... Vec B interior light lenses come up very cheap on eBay, slightly bigger then the boot lights tho but flush still

    Would it not trip the fuse running 2 more bulbs off the existing circuit?
