Re: Here it is. Custom interior ambient footwell LED lighting. Pics inside!

I have heard getting the shift knob off is the hardest part, and that it is not that easy?

It was cake. Just pry the lower chrome trim piece downwards, then pull the metal clip out and the shifter slides right up. Took 30 seconds to do, and the center bezel lifted up in another 10 seconds. Very easy interior to work with so far.

Re: Here it is. Custom interior ambient footwell LED lighting. Pics inside!

What you see there is nothing more than a plastic sheet that I cut to shape and used as a mounting plate to add a little rigidity to the area. I used hot glue gun to attach the plastic sheet to the footwell cover panel, then more hot glue to secure the LED in place.

Also, for those that are considering doing this, I also modified the LED bulb to disperse light more. I sanded down the tip so it was flat, then I lightly sanded the rest of the bulb so it had a frosted look. Now the light is completely spread throughout the footwell, where as if left untouched, it would have a fairly focused beam of light. This part was pretty easy though I used a dremel and the bulb sands down very quickly.

Thanks for pointing that out to him, though I'm sure he would have noticed. I was simply using the first link I found as support of my post. Ha. I've got the set installed, and the emergency brake cover sitting in wait.

Just sand down the LED to give it much better light dispersion. I used my dremel with a sanding bit, works great. You don't have to do this part, but I think if you don't the light would not fill out the entire footwell.
