Default aftermarket interior lights

are there any good aftermarket lights for interior? i thought i saw someone'* sig pic with blue courtesy lights in the door. i tried searching old threads, but saw nothing.

anyone know of any lights that would do this? i think it'd be awesome to light up the interior with some color.

Plurr, Is it pretty easy to switch out those red LEDs in the door panel for another LED? Where did you buy the blue one?

yes it just comes out when you pop out the little handle accent piece. They are actually blacklight led'* and they are pretty good at making things glow. I got them from oznium.com and they also have resistors you can add on for cheap. They are very inexpensive and a great and easy way to upgrade your car'* look. Oznium is a great company and they have really cheap flat rate shipping for everything.

i like the blue interior, like what phoenix_flame has.

since these are LED'*, does stuff have to be rewired cuz they're different than regular bulbs?

LEDs are much different than light bulbs. You need a resistor in series with the LED to limit the current, and they are polarity sensitive, so they have to be hooked up with respect to positive and negative. If you use the right resistor you can make an led work with any voltage. If you want to put a lot of leds together you can use a PCB (printed circuit board) and solder the leds and resistors to it. In my doors I took out the light sockets and cut them out to fit a strip of leds to fit right in there. I used the original plugs too so that the lights are a direct replacement.
