    Default Fitted puddle lights today

    Well folks iv spent all day installing some LED puddle lights to the underside of the wing mirrors, had to remove the whole mirror, door card and lower dash to do them and run the wires along the original loom and through the MHASSIVE! Rubber door grommit, up the widscreen pillar and into the interior light, as i unlock the car they come on, and when i remove egnition key etc, just like your interior light, and im absloutly CHUFFED! Only thing im not happy with is how they stick out so im gonna make a hole in the bottom of the mirror and resess them into it somehow, i have only done the driveres side today so when i do the passenger side il try and do a little how to.........
    iv never done anything like this before so im proud as punch!
    Heres a few pics il show more when it goes dark.....



    Not a very good picture but you can just about see the light....
