This is the next thing I want to do as I think it looks really good!

I have a 1.6 fiesta mk 6.5 which does not have any lights in the footwell.

 

Are there any guides?

 

Has anyone done this and how did they find it?

 

Thanks   :rolleyes:

Unfortunately it's something i've wanted to do for along time, I know how to do it, just haven't got round to it. You just need to buy a few interior bulbs suitable for the job and wire them to the same connection that runs the interior courtesy lights. Then make a fitting for the bulbs. Its quite a pain but do able. Shame it's not as easy as fitting them on the MK7's :( 

 

Hope this helps. 

 

p.s. there may be a easier way to do this, someone might correct me, I just thought i'd reply due to this thread being quite inactive.

Update: I have fitted some LED's in the boot of my car, this was mainly to practice crimping and doing it.

Went really well, will get some pics up when it is dark.

 

The footwells will have to wait until I get some more LED's, next week probably!

No not at all.

 

Because you create your own wiring from the map light, you can easily remove it if you wish to sell. The LED's are just stick on so again can easily be pulled off.
