    Coupe - Rear interior light?

    I was just wondering, has anyone added rear interior lights into a Coupe? I really want one and wiring it in wonít really be a problem, itís just the cutting and if it needs a metal bracket to sit in as I donít think it clips into the roof itself.

    And as I donít have rear grab handles those kind of lights are out of the question so has to be this kind:



    Thanks for any help.

    I don't see why you would have to cut into the metal. Just fit the light as far back as possible just before the metal starts

    Wiring will be the easy bit
