Boot light

Hey guys

I've been looking at installing lights into my boot just to find out I already have one lense in the bootimage.jpegimage.jpeg. Is this normal to have one in there? How easy would it be to wire in another the other side? And finally what bulb would fit to give a bright blue glow like this?image.jpeg

48 smd led panel is easiest. On my mk2.5 I used one of these and looks good, but that was just one sided but you could easily run a wire from the existing wiring over to the other side

that's a nice looking boot tray thing, did that come with it? my fabric one has seen better days so might consider something like that!

 

Ive got two Red SMDs in my boot...front and rear footwells....glovebox and now in my headlights :D

na, those little ones that plug in are crap, I had some and they failed very quickly.

In short, ditch the bulb holder and stick the 48 SMDs on, they come with double sided tape and a bunch of different connectors to connect them up without having to rewire anything.

Of course of you want a second one on the other side then you will need to run some cables over, but that's pretty straight forward

noooo, all your doing is pulling out the bulb on the one you have, then your removing the bulb holder (just turn it and it comes off If I recall correctly) you then plug in the little adaptor cable you get with the SMDs and finally plug in the LEDs them selves.  No need to disconnect the battery

I then ran a set of wires over to the other side of the boot and installed a second light, then spliced in to the existing wires, no need to disconnect the battery.

3 sets of SMDs each side? that's gonna be bright, if I were you id look at just one either side first, if you think you need more then add one at a time, I really think 3 will be over kill

3 will be too much. I went with one SMD 501 at one side & then DRLs Under the parcelshelf for a nice even, not blinding light
