I wanted to fit a rear courtesy light and have it lit blue just as all the others are.  I don't have any blue festoons left. But I do have leftover blue smd's from a previous project. So with my trusty soldering iron I I set about a spare light housing and knocked this up. Think it will work?

It's the leds. They are so cheap to buy. It's too easy to get carried away and go overboard with them. I have been thinking recently about fitting 4 red 5mm leds in the boot lift. Where the oval badge is. 2 leds either side.lol.

Not really mate with my handles I was gonna run the wiring into the car via the rubber conduit so i could have em running off the footwell timer rather than use live feeds from the switches etc

 

too much of a faff though trying to get the wiring in the conduit n i'm not really that fussed any more
