I'm usually not one for liking this type of thing (just not me), but this looks really nice. I especially like the door ones. Awesome job!

Update:

Don't use double sided sticky velcro in a hot car, no matter how sticky you think it is...

Passenger side under dash light strip fell off today, gonna have to find a new method to attach it, any ideas guys?

Also, we live near a school, and some little girl with her mother was walking by my house, and I'd left the car door open, she stopped and pointed at the door going "Mommy, mommy look!" she liked my lights, lol!

ahahaha, you wish.

No sir, these are all tied into the curtesy lights circuit, so they're only on when a door is open, or you pull a door handle.

Note: for the record my armrest switch isn't the "cool switch" the name "Cool Switch" has a semi-brief story behind it, and it'* not actually a switch :P

Those door lights look GOOD! They must be so bright in person.

Great to hear!

I had to choose between blue, orange, and white cause that'* what I had sitting around, the orange didn't give off as much light, so I decided against them, and white is just way too boring for this application :P.

Of course if you have any questions during your project, msg me at will.
