    Talking Todays little mod

    Well last mod of the year installed some footwell leds today.

    Wired them to courtsey light so they only come on when doors are open etc.

    Here are some pics not the best but hard to take photos of.





    Not to everyones taste i know but i love it think it goes well with the rest of the interior

    Start by takeing the light unit down there is 2 torx screws holding it in place. then tuck it in between the head liner and windscreen run it down the piller then down the weather strip then behind the glove box. hope all that makes sense for the drivers side take it behing the centre console.

    I had them done by a member on here steve is his name. Where are you from ?

    Im not sure what type of leds is needed to be honest but it basicly require you to unsolder the current orange leds then solder then new blue ones in so if you havent done anything like this before i would consider posting in your regional section asking if anyone can do a smd conversion as there are a few pepole that can do it but the leds are tiny.
