Fire Fly for a Trunk Light.
How many people here find the trunk light adequate for the trunk? Well I decided to fix mine tonight. I have taken a series of pictures explaining how and what I did for those interrested in doing the same. For those who find this lame skip to next thread.
Numbered pictures in lower right corner to match text lines.
1 This is the firefly in question.
2 I took a picture of trunk lighting before at a preset aperture setting.
3 Found an old wedgebulb socket.
4 Took some LED striplights I had laying around.
5 Wired one end of a pair of black/red wires to the socket.
6 Wired the other end to the strip.
7 Voilą new LED trunk light.
8 Test to see if I didn't screw up (it happens).
9 Added double sided tape for backing to keep it straight.
10 Reason for adding wedge socket is so I can revert to old bulb if need be.
11 Picture of install.
12 Seen from backseat.
13 After picture of trunk well lit.
Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly
