Glovebox Light #2

I did my glovebox light following previous thread. Thanx jbsrace1 http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...light=glovebox
But I used GM part number 13503058 for the light housing using a Led from AAC. Its the same housing as trunk in the Camaro.


I then soldered on 2 wires for the ground and switch.


Here is light mounted after cutting hole with razor knife.


After following previous thread for wiring switch here is finished product.

I used an LED light strip with a pressure switch to light my glove box.

Just wondering, did both you guys who did this.. use the same pressure switch as jbsrace1? Or did you use something else?

I bought the S1067 switch from Advance Auto and have 1 question. It seems to have an awfully stiff spring in it, any chance it tries to hold the edge of the glove box door out a bit when it is closed ?? Thanks in advance.

It is amazing how putting in a glove box light makes all the difference when trying to find things. This is one of the best mods I did.
