Re: 10 minute foot well RGB LED ambient lighting.

Replacing the interior bulbs is a piece of cake. Get the 194 style 5watt LEDs. Also the license plate lights are 194 style. Get 10 and you will be good to go. Also on the lift gate lights I didn't even have to pull the shroud off. You can actually pop the lens off and reach your hand inside and get the housing back in place. I have modded other cars over the yrs though so not bad at all. If it's your first time I could see it taking a little while to do. I like the ambient lights def might look into this too. I like footwell lights on while the car is dark personally.

Re: 10 minute foot well RGB LED ambient lighting.

Great job! Look forward to your how-to and parts list. This looks like something I can do.

Here's a "fixed" link to the you tube video.

Re: 10 minute foot well RGB LED ambient lighting.

Gtaz -

Big all around.

The look is phenomenal!! Great work.

I can definitely see doing some of this especially in a blue that matches the other trim/backlights already in the truck.

I just have to convince my better half that this is a good idea. Not sure if I'd do the full blown project, but could see doing the ambient light under the front seats to give the rear seat passengers a bit more light.

Can't wait for the write-up, and will have to watch the YouTube video after work today.

Re: 10 minute foot well RGB LED ambient lighting.

If you have any questions about this stuff or want more pictures of something specific, let me know and I'll try and get them for you. I tried to upload them in an order that makes sense. I didn't take enough pictures while i was doing it which was kind of dumb. So i understand this isn't the best tutorial.
