Default Interior LEDs

Hey there im already getting a set that has 2 interior LEDs in it. Bt my question is in a 98 SSEi is there enough room for LEDs to be installed under the rear seat? Anyone done this before or have any suggestions?

You could but you wouldnt see much if any light, its sealed around the bottom of the seat so little light would shine thru, unless you mounted it at the bottom front lip of the cushion, but i doubt if there is any sort of support for that kind of installment.

Consult with Crunkfunk or danthurs, they would be able to give you a better idea than i would, but i dont think it will work easily

Thats what i was thinking was mounting it on the lip or somewhere around there. Or would it possibly work to do underneath the front seats angled back?

That would be the better way to go

easier to work under the front seats and less likely to be knocked off by your passengers

I think your better putting them under the back of the front seats. If you put them under the rear seats you will be able to see the lights instead of just seeing the light.
