    I have recently done mine and added two led strips just under the plastic trim that supports the paracel shelf on each side.

    The led srips 30cm 12v were only £1.70 each delivered from ebay and it much better now I can see what I'm getting

    I just happened to have a spare little light panel I bought for my landy, it's got 48 LEDs and comes with various connectors and a sticky back. I just plugged it into the original socket, and stuck the panel over the top of the whole thing. It's so much better now! I've also stuck one in the main interior light at the front.

    You have an easy feed from the boot light so the option are endless, I'd have a look on eBay and see the different lighting options available, then decide which to run with or a combination of lots of different ones...

    Speaker wire from the boot light contacts to your strip position, you can get the red and black type in 5m lengths for couple of quid on eBay
