i installed two led strips under my dash today and connected them to a rocker switch which is hardwired to the battery. what is the easiest way to hide the wires since they go all the way from the front to the trunk of the car. and if it involves removing panels or seats can you please say how

That's a real difficult way of doing it no? but when I wired my sub I took out the rear seat and the center console and ran the wires under the carpeting along the center. It was tight but with a little patience I worked it down.

Ok, here are a couple of easy things to do for interior lighting:

1. You can choose to remove the rear lighter plug, and tap the wires off of that, installing either a toggle switch there, or just use a lighter adapter.....

2. The post for the battery terminal under the hood IS powered, so instead of going through the interior to the battery, instead, run the wires under the dash, through the hole in the door frame that leads into the quarter panel, tracing it into the engine bay........then just connect your posi to the post, and the negative, you ground to the frame at a body bolt(like the shock tower)......Mount your switch under the steering wheel on the knee panel, and you are set!

i got my leds from ledunderbody.com/
it has a button for on and off and mode and all that
put the wire around the back seats and inbetween the center consul by the passenger and driver seats. you only see a little bit of wire

i had to buy more black and red wire for the remote because there wasnt enough to go from my trunk to the ebrake area but other than that its fine

I tapped into an empty fuse, but it has a fuse in the line now though since I added my underglow I did some clean up while I had wires and the soldering iron and stuff out. It was left over from my sub because I got a way better one in a kit that came with it.
