Good evening all. I wanted to share a product that I haven't really seen talked about on here or other forums. I actually haven't seen this on cars but it's called glow wire. A buddy of mine installed this wire around on the inside driver and passenger side door panels . The outline of the entire dash board outline will be next. The wire comes in all sorts of colors and looks amazing. It's not bright to distract a driver but yet bright and looks amazing. It has the intensity of ones speedometer lighting. Here are a few pictures of my new interior lighting. It looks freaking amazing when dark. My system was set up to come on when the parking lights are put on. Any one else have this stuff.

Exactly bro. They are wired into the head lights. Lol. When gauges on, the glow wire is on.

I agree about a fine line being tacky and just right. Lol. I got 15 feet of the regular thin wire and the 12 volt plug and play pack. My buddy wired it directly up into the headlights wiring. The door panels need to come off and the headlight housing switch needs to be pulled out but stay connected as other parts to under steering wheel to run wires. We need the 12 volt.

Thanks bro. It did take a while to set it up. My buddy said it's not hard just time consuming because of the wiring. Of course when you know what your doing it's not hard. Lol. If your like me I have mechanical skills of pumping gas and that's it. Lol.

12 Volt 10' Plug & Play - Glowire

did he run it through the 12v driver and then into the headlights? and how do you wire it together after you cut it apart? i want to line all the spaces in between the dash panels in red, but that requires alot of cutting.i dont want 100000 connections going into my headlights
