Well, I got bored again, and I wanted some more light in the cargo area, but I wanted to be able to have more light with the cargo cover closed. So my solution was to put some LED strips about half way up the side of the cargo area. While I was at it, I hooked up the lights that are in my subwoofer box. I wish the lights in the sub box were white, but w/e. I know they're not the best subs, but I got an awesome deal on them, so can't complain. Anyway, let me know what you think.

Those white lights look good! I need to do something like that for under my cover. Are they just wired to a switch or do they come on with the dome lights?

I have the white ones wired to come one with the dome lights, the blue ones are tied in to the ignition.

Very nice! IMHO, I like the blue lights in the sub box. I am a big fan of blue lighting.

:iagree: If I had a bandpass/ported plexi box, I'd probably do the same. :yes:

This all started because I was going to do LED puddle lights on the back doors to match the front. I got the rear passenger side door panel and the B pillar cover off and started looking for the conduit, only to find that there is a plastic connector that prevents me from running a piece of wire into the door from the inside of the car. So since I couldn't run the necessary wires into the doors, I decided to use the LED strips for extra cargo lighting. I have my cargo cover 'closed' (the cover is deployed) most of the time, just for security's sake, so my bright LED dome light in the cargo area was just lighting up the top of the cover, not the actual cargo area. With these strips, I don't have to open the cover to be able to see what's under it. Laziness FTW!
