    Cool Interior floor lighting

    So I noticed my interior is incredibly dark at night. To the point that I can't see anything other than my dash lights. Of makes my eyes have to focus in and out more while night driving. I was wondering if anyone knew the best way to install lighting on the floor? As in by the pedals, under the glove compartment and behind both seats. This would be incredible thank you!

    floor lighting

    in the past, it was a little fan boy, but on previous vehicles I placed light bars just under the dash and under the seats.

    Initially I had them plugged into the cig lighter but later I hardwired them into a constant 12V with a switch. I would jsut it as a flare piece on dates but it made a decent lighting for night.

    The best thing to do would be to hook it into the same wiring as the dome light. a constant 12V power that would activate when you open the doors. It might take a bit of wiring thou.

    Maybe a project when the weather gets a little warmer.

    i used some red led adhesive strips (about 15 led's a piece) in either footwell. I hard wired them so they come on when the headlights are on.

    You want the interior as dark as possible while driving so that your eyes are dilated. Have you tried just dimming the dash lights?

    the red is good at night because it is easy on the eyes.

    Thats the greatest thing you can do. Dim your light on the dash. I always do, i cant really focus on the road much with the bright ass dash.

    But if your looking for a sleek looking interior them the led lights would do good.
