Lightbulb Request

Does anybody have lighting (red/IOM lighting would be preferred) in their glove compartment and arm rest? I am looking for ideas. I can't see anything in either of those areas and LED lights would be welcomed into each of those areas. More pics the better!!

I used this one: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...love+box+light , but instead of wiring it the way the O.P. did I wired it to my 12VDC plug on the center console. It is easy to pop off the center console passenger side panel, and then pop up the center console to get more space to put a wire tap on the Red wire for the +12VDC accessory plug. I used AAC's 4 Blue LED spot light and it works great for me.

I did it this way for two reasons; 1. I knew it was used strictly for accessory power, and 2. It would shut off when the key is removed.

One other Forum member, might have been 2SSRS or another, hooked up a LED for the inside door pull and was able to get power from the lighted window buttons. You could also run another LED to the map pocket.

Do a search for Inside lighted door handle in this section and you will see how and who did it.

You are too kind sir. Is the splitter available for both the door handle and the compartment below it? I will have to make a trip to RadioShack when the roads get better to get the LED's and the holders. I can't wait to have them done. I'll wait for CF2 for the door panels
