This interests me. Having uber light in the trunk can only be a good thing.

Ahh, I need to add some strips.. where did you buy yours? Do you have it hooked up to the trunk light where it turns on when the trunk opens and off when it closes?

I want some white ones, Just to be able to see inside my trunk at night.

Since you posted this, I ended up looking for some for mine... I found some and I got them for $20 shipped. (200 Lumens!!!!)

Here's the link for the one that would work in your car.

1994-2004 Ford Mustang Trunk Light LED

You can select the brightness (The brighter, the pricier though, but well worth it).

Yes please, But do they have them in white? I just need a strip to place behind my subs so I can see the amp and epicenter in the dark.

With the upgraded LED bulb I just ordered, I shouldn't have a problem seeing the rest of the trunk, LOL.

here are some strips of white ive had them on for about 8 months and they still stick and work perfectly. they come in packs of 4. you will want to add more aound if you like the way it looks. and yes the white led bulb lights up the trunk like no other.

Thanks, hopefully you can post a pic of that 200 lumens led once you get it installed.

Will do! I also bought the 4 -strips of LED pack to install on the backside of the trunk to illuminate behind the subs.

I'll take 3 pictures, 1 with the regular bulb, 1 with the 200 lumen bulb, then 1 with the 200 lumen bulb and the LED strips.

So I opened my trunk for the first time in a while, I saw no light come out at all (Not something I remembered, I'm normally at work during the night so while I get there or if I'm leaving, There's usually daylight) then I notice there's no light output at ALL..

I removed the cover and the plug was disconnected... Where's the connector? Somewhere under the dynamat, LOL.
