Illuminated Door Sill Plates

Just purchased a set of illuminated door sill plates from blueovalindustries.com and had a question. They are selling the wiring kit for an extra $30, but it's basically just wire and splicing clips. I'm sure I can get this cheaper if I just do it myself. I found the clips for $1.20. What kind of wire would I need to complete this? I know I need a negative side and a positive side, but being electrically "challenged" (for the pc crowd in our midst), I just don't know what kind/guage wire I need. Any one have any thoughts on this?

Since you're not sure and you're "electrically challenged" why wouldn't you just the proper wiring kit and be done with it?

Because it's just wire and splicing clips, and possibly someone that knows much more about electrical issues than I do may take the time to read this and actually post a helpful response.

Really dude??

I gave you helpful advice. Stop being a cheap a$$ and just spend the 30.00 and get it done it. You want to mod your car and your worried about 30.00???

Wow, why so touchy? You asked me a question and I answered it. You took my comment about someone knowing more about electrical wiring than me, and providing me with a helpful response personally? I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings.

You didn't hurt my feelings. I've read countless threads and posts about people trying to cut corners on projects. To me it make no sense. If you're going to do it, do it right. I think 30.00 is a very small price to pay for the proper wiring to do it right. What if some one gives you advice and it's wrong? What if you don't know it's wrong? What if it starts a fire? The 30.00 looks pretty good now. The wires it comes with are designed to work with the door sills.

It's your car and your money. Hopefully some one can give you the advice you want or need. Good luck!!

Those are good points. I may just buy the pre-packaged setup.

Something inside the car I'd splice and wire myself no problem, already did my pony projection lights that way and spliced into the map lights. But something like door sill plates that could be exposed to rain or even snow from entering and exiting the car, I wouldn't take a chance. In the end you have the last word but if I were you I'd just get the kit. Hope this helps.

Some times if we don't have the knowledge we just have to bite the bullet. Yes, it sucks to have to spend an additional 30.00 but it's on 30.00. I understand we all have a budget to follow and live within but some things just shouldn't be cut short. My .02, take it or leave it...

I will preach this up and down. Don't use splice clips. Learn to solder. It isn't difficult or expensive. It's much better than those flimsy clips.
