    Default Cig Lighter socket in Boot?

    Oright,

    I got a mini fridge spare from the old days which i use to in my bedroom before buying my own house,

    just wondering how easy is it to get a 12v cig lighter socket in the boot? seen pics of it on others, but cant remeber the members who had it.

    thanks

    it's quite easy to pick up a ignition 12V live and an earth from the rear electrical centre behind the passengers side boot panel..fuse the feed to 5Amp and add a socket....all you'll need is a multimeter to detect a suitable 12V switched feed.
