Default upgraded interior lighting

Hello this is my first post here. Just wanted to share a couple additions to lighting I've done. I've done the normal swapping halogen for LED. I've also added 2 sets of LED strips in the footwells all around.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/sl4f68fdag...717_204651.jpg

White strip ties into the regular interior overhead lighting. Ehaves the same, open the doors they come on. Lock the doors they dim. I wired them so when the left map light is turned on, all the driver side foot wells light up. Passenger side same thing.


https://www.dropbox.com/s/xyw59qygsg...717_203111.jpg

Green strip is manually activated. I used a 3 position switch. So there are two modes. Mode 1, they run normal, just on. Mode 2, they pulse with the music.


I'll add more pics this weekend. Car needs a good cleaning

Welcome to the forums, wow that's bright and is that a ol'school equalizer I see??? I like the green glow my favorite color to have glowing from inside a car .... especially something black glowing green .... just looks like evil radiating from it! lol.

Welcome to the forum

Nice lighting start.

I like the sub EQ . Not totally old school. I think I have a couple real old school EQ around the shop I should post a picture of . They make yours look "tech"!

LOL. I say "old school" because most people now days laugh at equalizers or say I haven't seen 1 of those in years, since high school, and etc... . I used to have 2 but they weren't really for subs. They were for fine tuning tweeters, mid ranges, and sometimes just boosting cheap radios to help them sound decent to the ears.

Great Pics!! Lighting looks awesome!! About the equalizer, I have one of those, but with vertical slider bars instead of knobs, but the exact same type, Pyramid is the brand, bought it back a a flea market in oh say,78, and it's still in it"s original packaging! I know, I know, a procrastinator I am!! The interior looks great!!
