Suweeeet.

Seeing how the stock interior lighting is horrible, I went with the Phaztek aqua dome/floor package. For around $200 for the lighting and installation, this is one of the best mods I've done yet! I had it installed to a switch so I can control the lighting yet wired to the ignition so when I turn the car off, the lights will go off in case I forget...... I think it really "lights" up the interior...no pun intended!

Yea, I saw those at Auto Zone. I can barely change a light bulb so I wasn't about to tackle this! I did do my CAI by myself and was very proud. Me not very handy.

Man, I'm not either but this mod was a breeze. Got it all for free when I bought my side markers (some sort of sale, Black Friday maybe?) and setting everything up took like 30 minutes. I used a walkthrough on this site, otherwise I could not have done it on my own without knowing which wires.

Yours looks really good! Personally, I had to spray a couple layers of plasti dip over my dome light cover because the LED was so bright. Really tones it down a lot but still lets off enough light to see. Pretty perfect. Also matches the color of the ceiling when the dome light is off so you can't even tell there is a dome light cover. Just looks black all the way across, even in the day.

$200!!! I would have charged you less than $30 for the strips, and a pack of beer for the installation

Damn bro! Where were you? I would have bought you a case! the lights were only $40, but I paid $140 for the install. Pricey but I'm happy.

Chill guys. Not everyone is mechanically inclined or has the ability/knowledge to do their own work.

It looks good. I've been looking at those myself. How closely does it match the factory blue?

Is there a way to tap off the factory ones? I work at Pepboys and he strips Are super cheap but I don't wanna run wires everywhere. Can I just tap into the factory wire behind the light?

It's one of the easiest mods I've done, and I'm not that bright . All you need is this guide,a T-tap, electrical wire, and basic electrical knowledge.

It's pretty damn close to a match. Not exact...but definetly close enough! And on a side note, I'd personally rather spend the $140 installation than a couple of hours or more of headaches. I'm no Bob Villa.

Cool thanks.

This was one of the things I was considering for Camaro5Fest, but I have to work that weekend
