Take off the four gauge trim, it just pulls up. Once you have it out unplug the power connector in the very back. Now turn the gauge trim over, make 4 notches with a small file 2 in the front and 2 in the back.
You’re going to be fallowing the bottom edge on the trim so keep your notches in the back low.
The lighting size is 1.524m so use a file close to that.
The front notches need to be made right after the last clip that holds the trim on.
The lighting I used is called Neon power line, it’s made by WWW.pilotautomotive.com
The lighting is ruffle 3 ½ feet long and comes with a cigarette plug for power.
I just spliced the wires to the cigarette plug that was already there in the trim.
I used super glue to hold the lighting in the 4 notches.
The blue lighting is just like the lighting in the doors just a little brighter.

So if you wired it to the 12V then its always on right? Did you install a switch?

It's controlled by the key, if the key is off the light is off.
