In Topic: Guide To Fitting Vanity Lights?

Hey guys haven't ordered any parts just yet. Really like the 'positap' gear, thanks so much for that link - not confident in chopping into the wires. I just wanted to confirm, the sticking out bit on the vanity light is where the power needs to go (one thing I did know), but will I need to butcher the light a little bit? Only the metal connectors ON the light are about halfway down that plastic sticky out bit :/

 

...slowly learning...

Thanks again for the help you guys are offering, I've just taken a couple pictures of the lights to show them and what I have/don't have etc.

 

There are no wires supplied at all sadly :(

 

The back view shows the 'socket' I guess you could call it, that links up to the bulb, but there is no 'plug' which would lead to the power source:

And front view is..well..just the front view:

My car has the little indentations under the sun visors where vanity lights are 'supposed' to go in higher spec models, so I'm not too worried about where to fit them (just scary having to chop into a nice headlining - might get my fiancee to do it :D haha then it's not my fault!)

 

Thanks for the links of stuff above, I'm still not sure how to wire it into the vanity lights themselves... The part the bulbs goes into is all covered by plastic and would need special plugs...

Unfortunately no. I've looked online and seen images which show the wires attached, but mine don't have wires or plugs attached  :(
