Have a look in the focus guides section or in Lenny's signature. He has written a great guide on it.

Hi mate,

Sorry for the delayed response,

The trippleRcomposites kit is hand crafted in the uk and painted prior to dispatch,

TripleRComposites advertise on their facebook page but ive purchased my front splitter from them and can now supply a direct email address

So you can contact them directly for images and pricing talk to Kevin at triplercomposites@live.co.uk

Also regarding the rear footwell lighting guide, please see the guide in the list below,

It has links to the guides and in the guides their are links to purchase the items required, will cost less than 20pounds.

And regarding the glovebox light.

Purchase a pressure switch and two 3smd led strips.

Or instead of a pressure switch you could fit a manual rocker switch.

Mount the sticky back led strips inside the glove box and fit the pressure swich to the front face so as the door pushes it down to cut the power when closed.

Then fit an inline fuse to the positive feed if splicing in to an existing power supply cable.

Or

Purchase a piggy back fuse plug and fit the cable to a permanently live fuse in the interior fuse box.

I also highly recommend Dave at autostar electonic shop on ebay.

Hes got everything you could need regarding cables,fuses,tape and switches. He also offers free no obligation advise on the correct amp of cable to wire certain things like leds in the footwells or gauges on the dash. Daves a top man and speedy dispatch.

Take a parallel tap off each light on both sides and tuck the wires up under the sides of the centre console.

Jugu be sure to pass the wires under the seat rails to avoid chopping them when moving the seats

What do you mean by a parallel tap? And how? Sorry not very good with proper electrical language!!

Connect one wire from each of the wires to the existing bulb holders without cutting the existing wires or else you will be sharing the voltage between two bulbs and they won't light up properly.

(yes Brigante I know I did that myself, before you rub it in.)

Some people use what are called T-taps or scotchlock connectors.

Yeah I saw they were the same as what I've seen as snap lock connectors, where you put wire in one said and the wiring your running to somewhere else in the other side of it and snap it shut? So if I put one on the positive wire and then run that to my new bulb holders that I bought for the rear and then do the same for the negative it should work?

Yes.

One live and one earth connection per light which will equate to four wires and four connectors.

Okay, the wires going to the front working footwell lights have a purple and green wire which is ignition live and the other one is I can't remember, so snap one to purple and green wire, and onto say red wire run to New bulb holder and connect on then do same for other side! Should work?

Connect the negative to an existing negative cable or earh point,

An earth point is a ring terminal like a washer that is bolted to the body of the car with earth cables running from it.

Then connect the positive from the lights to your choice of swith.

Then run a single positive feed from the switch to your piggy back fuse.

Followed by pluging the fuse in to an ignition live source or permanent live source.

Remove the existing fuse

Insert that fuse in to the piggyback plug along with a fuse for the light

Then plug piggyback in place of fuse.
