The LEDs are a flexible LED strip you can get on ebay with different lengths. I used white b/c they're so bright they give a blue tint.. the blue LEDs are pretty dark anyway so go with white if you want to actually see.wow! how'd u wire the lights below?
I was studying the service manual on ways to wire custom lighting. You did a great job fishing and concealing the wire. My buddy has LED's on his handles and I might want to do the same in addition to the LED floor strip.The LEDs are a flexible LED strip you can get on ebay with different lengths.

I wired it from the center dome light. Popped the center dome lens out, unscrew the dome light attachment, then ran wires from the dome lights above the inside roof (using a wire hanger to guide the wire) out to the sides and along the black rubber trim around the inside frame. The black rubber trim comes right off and comes back easily. You can't see any wires and they work just like the dome lights, even fades when turning off. I have two more sets I'm going to wire along the rubber trim by the passenger windows. Pics to come.
Oh, the center dome light is an 18 LED assembly I also got from ebay. All together I have 4 strips of white LEDs and a pair of 18 LEDs for around $45 shipped from overseas (took two weeks to get here). Don't know where I'm going to put the other set of 18 yet..they're friggin bright.
Rolla I was working with individual LED's but I may go to the strip that looks slick.Welcome! I just added two more strips in the front under the seats so I'll have pics of those soon.
I am working on my lights this week. Thanks Rolla for giving me the nudge to get started on this mod! I have been threatening to do this since I bought my E new in 2006. I have purchased my strips from superbrightleds.comYou can get them at autozone but they seem to be a bit steeper in price.
I think there's plenty of time, they do sell the strips at Autozone and Kragenm even Pep Boys. I really need to move on to modding the interior more, these LED strips seem to be what I am looking for.Rolla I was working with individual LED's but I may go to the strip that looks slick.
VX Think we have enough time to get those here by October?
I was thinking 1 strip to replace the rear cargo light.
1 strip under each front seat (front/back).
that may be to bright!
Keep up the pics.
