Thanks to you and muddy for the overhead console idea

Re: JDubya's build thread...09 WK Overland... meet Sparkles the Beast

Personally, I would not want it on all the time and I would not want any light above dash height. I really like the idea of putting led at the door handles. I'd do under the dash, the door handles and maybe under the seats.

The brightness of the LED on the overhead console that we installed.........is no brighter than the Homelink buttons. Just to let you know.

It's also no brighter than all the luxury cars out there that have the LED on the overhead console. BMW, Acura, etc, etc.

It's beautiful. You'll see. My ambient light has been finished for a while but I'm going to take pictures when LXHarness ships the rest of my interior.

You'll see.

Yeah, I'm not going to have them turn on with the ignition, I'm going to do it "right". The LED will be recessed so you won't see the light source, only the slightly-illuminated center console, so it shouldn't be a distraction

Re: JDubya's build thread...09 WK Overland... meet Sparkles the Beast

Correct. You will see some light above but it won't glare in your eye sight. It will be just like the Homelink buttons.

Can't wait to see the red.
