New red lights

Hard to see, but I got new red led lights in the map lights and under the seats front and back. What do you guys think?

I've got red map lights in mine, sorry no pics yet, but I've been considering some interior ambient LEDs in red to match. How bright are they when they are under the seats? What's a good place to put LEDs so that they aren't so bright that I'm blinded/distracted?

Colored dome lights always scores cool-factor points to people (had that same setup in my base V6). I decided to keep the classy incandescent bulbs when I got my GT Prem with red leather though.

Here is what blue looks like, just make sure you don't accidentally leave these in while driving or even think about turning them on to look for something. The police will not like that.

I *had* red map lights in my car for about a week. Decided it looked a little to "haunted house" -like. Plus I couldn't really see things very well when I dropped them in the foot wells.

New red lights

One more question about the lights:

Where do you wire the LEDs? Are you just plugging em in to a 12v outlet or are they wired in somewhere? I'm not really a car genius, I just know how to do body work and paint and some other basic stuff.

Also, those rims would be SICK in black. I'm not a huge chrome fan myself, but imagining those in black.... I need some to finish my Decepticon. Haha

I removed the rear valance stripe, it looked like crap. Also removing the hood and roof stripe soon. I didn't do a grade A job and I'm OCD as hell. Also, the tail lights are pitch black, like the decklid, the sun was just shining right into em. Haha

Lol I actually am trying to get rid of these rims. And I have my led.s wired to my gauges so they cut on when I turn my lights on. If you get them I can walk you through wiring them up and that's a sick car man

This the proper way to access them? They're a bit difficult to unscrew and I don't want to squish them lol
