    Default Alternative Rear Interior Lighting

    For those of you like me who would like a rear interior light but don't have the balls to take the roof lining down and cut a hole in it or don't have the pre wired loom!

    Please see the attached pictures for my alternative option!! i have put a picture on to show how it looks without the light on and as you can see it is a neat fiinish and does not look out of place!

    I purchased the Xenon L.E.D. strip lights from eBay 2 x 48cm length for £19.99 item number 280313394287.

    To fit them i just put them under the internal door trim that meets the head lining and they have that super sticky stuff on the back that you use for putting tax disc holders on with which holds them in place perfectly and there is enough wire on them to feed around to the front interior light, i then dropped the interior light, connected the cables to the respective cables on the light and hey presto!!

    The job from start to finish took approx 30 mins!

    I will post some pictures later to show how efective it looks like in the dark

    Hope you like it? Any questions please ask and i will give any help required

    Thanks for all the comments!!

    Gareth19, now you are tempting me! i suppose i could spend another £20 and find out what it looks like! if it does look tacky i can use them else where in the car i.e. under the bonnet or in the boot!

    I will keep you updated if i go ahead and do it!!
