Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

The best thing to do is to buy LED tubes that are ready to be installed, such as these:
A 7" tube is brighter than factory dome lights.
I figured it would be hard to do. I saw one company on amazon that sells new connectors so you don't have to solder. Thanks for your help.
Edit: I drive on dirt roads everyday so I'm sure the connection would fail sooner rather than later. I was thinking something like the strip lights that could be cut and connectors like these http://www.amazon.com/LEDwholesalers...pr_product_top
. Needless to say I really have no idea about any of the actual components. Those tubes are cool. I like that they are removable unlike the double sided strips. One for each side of the tub maybe? I already have replaced the under dash footwell lights with LED strip lights from amazon. Looking for the rear now.
