Interested as well in the Jocoo solution in red.

But I would get Camaro SS/RS or a different sill plate instead of Chevrolet. Its more "show" orientated.

Because of all the recent interest and private messages I figured I would update this post. I have made little attempt to play with or modify this mod in the past months. I cannot post a DIY because the materials I used are somewhat of a prototype and are not really available to the general public. Sorry for the disappointment. I will up update again when I have more news.

How do you get the light to shine through without drilling into the car? I don't understand why a DIY can be made since a company already is making these. Maybe a flat led under the sill itself. Anyone have any ideas?

major update 7-13-10

roger at emblempros and I , threw around a few ideas. i already had my sills doors lighted as you can see below, but the "Chevrolet" wasnt doing so well anymore, i liked emblempros lighted door sill but i wanted to use mine as i will be rewiring the whole car with RGB leds, so i wanted my door sills to change colors. i will be doing that next week. but anyway, got the doors sills in today and WOW, awesome, got them installed real quick, here is a quick peek
since the leds are down about 1 inch the lighted letters have a real depth to them when you see them in person.

How are the holding up to fine or course scratches?? My main concern would be getting tons of scratches on the smooth metal looking areas. My current Chevy ones have been holding up well, but like the look that you and Roger have put together...How much with car down there lupe...I would want RGB lights in (already have the controller). Would want sills with Camaro SS as well
