TO all with interior LED strips....
 
How/where did you mount yours? preferably im looking for ways for under the rear seats. There's a decent size gap with no flat surface to mount the strips.

PS: big thanks to 2for3 for providing pics and helping me on the install! You da man!

in the 2nd pic it looks bright only cause i have blue in the overhead lights. IM planning to switch them back to white so ill have the 6k/blue combo in the rear and front!

Find a spot under the seats and use something stiff, maybe a broken shim and stick the strip to that, then use zip ties to attach the setup under the seats, oh and paint whatever you use to stick them to black so its clean.... thats just my idea though, iv never gone under there looking lol

updated with pics!

i wasnt able to wire the passenger side strip to the passenger dash, by the glovebox. idk how anyone can,basically there was no room to stick ur hand through and work with the splice clips. spent an hour on that sh*t , getting some cuts here n there lol. so i tap into the other side strip and fed it underneath the seats to the other side=much easier.

pretty neat, since im a rookie at electrical stuff. install coulda been cleaner but all wires are hidden from sight. ONly thing is, its "aimed" high probably because of where i mounted the strips, maybe ill move it an inch down but in the mean time it's staying like this cause i have no 3m tape left lol.

switched my rear overhead lights to white so you can see the contrast of the blue and finally matches my front wooot!

idk whats its called but its stiffer than cardboard but less than a thin piece of wood. we made a template out of that thinking final result will be the thin piece of wood i got. but the template turn out pretty well so i decided to use that.
