I put LEDs in my interior. It lights up pretty well for LEDs having low output. I'd recommened it. I used them from superbrightleds as well.

Searching isn't gonna help him these days and most members realize this...

As far as the lighting goes, I used downfiring LEDs from V-leds in my mirror and footwells. I also got a festoon bulb for the dome light.

These are close to what I used for my 194 locations. http://www.v-leds.com/6K-WHITE.....6-1-2.html

Way to break him in gently... most of the members here are pretty decent people.

If you're trying to find something and don't have much luck, don't hesitate to post a question. Due to some hosting package and website size issues, the search doesn't work as well as it used to.

I personally haven't done interior lighting work in my own car, but it seems like you already have a handful of good leads to follow. Very Happy

Welcome to the forum!

If this doesn't work, go to your local boneyard, & find an Impala cop car. They use a special dome lamp that gives plenty of light for writing tickets, reports, etc. When I turn on my dome lamp, it practically lights up the whole neighborhood. Actually, any brand cop car uses that same lamp since the 70's. GARY

LEDs draw less current than the stock bulbs, the wiring will be fine. Auto LEDs come with a resistor built in so the lights will work with 12~ volts without blowing.
