How did you wire your interior lights? Did you just take light strips and strap them up under the lip of the body? I'm looking to green out my interior with LED's.

Footwell lights: drivers side is a strip mounted on a paint stick. That is riveted to a piece of licence plate. That is bolted to the bottom of the steering support.
Passenger side is a strip mounted on a ruler. That was drilled and mounted between the bottom lip of the dash and the support.

Tub lights: two strips nounted on some old pieces of angled wood trim which is painted black and clearcoated. Mounted under the rails with double sided tape.

Wired and finished

I mounted two of my KC rocker switches on the plastic piece under the door frame. I wanted them hidden under the dash but there was no good place to mount them. This spot makes it easy to turn on or off while driving or outside the the car. The front switch will control the front and rear foot well lighting. The back switch will control tub rail lighting and any other locations.

Tomorrow will be work on the rear foot well lights.
What's another way to wire them? I have no clue how to wire anything but I would like to wire something like this so that it comes on with the dome light/doors open instead of making a switch.

Wire them to the courtesy lights under each footwell.

Woohoo! Finally sold my Body Armor trail doors for $200 + shipping. Bank accounts up to about $350 and keeps climbing as I sell more junk. Graduation money is about to roll in. It is EXTREMELY hard not to start buying stuff. I am trying very hard to get the $700 to pay off my dad before I buy.

So I was looking up parts on the internet as usual today and I noticed Rigid Industries has a new product out. They now offer Dually's and D2's as a flush mount unit. This is great news to me. I had an idea a while back to incorporate a pair of amber Dually's as my front turn signals. I have been designing a circuit to run them dim as driving lights and turn signals (to not blind others at night) but to also be able to turn them on full brightness with a switch (for fog use). I wasn't sure how I was going to attach them to the Metalcloak Stubby (my next purchase) but these new flush mount Dually's mean I can just cut the grill and bolt them in where most people would put JK or LED turn signals.


What do you think?

I sold my KC's, so no I don't. And yes, Metalcloak Arched fenders are in the plans, but I don't want to use their little 3/4" LEDs. This way, I would get good LED turn signals and good fog lights in one set.

And I just happen to be coming back from Edisto Island on the 30th, so maybe a swing-by is in order.

You live in North Carolina, right? I've been in New York all week and I'm stopping off in Greensboro for the night. I'd love to see your rig if you're in the area...

I actually live in Concord. At the moment, I'm in Harmony, NC and will be here until Saturday.

Or just shove the + end behind the fuse for your dome light

Today was graduation. Got about a thousand bucks in addition to the $300 I've had waiting. The parts anxiety is killing me.
Plus I got this bad boy.
