    Does it take a lot of work to do the cargo bay? I was thinking about just installing footwell lights under the glovebox and steering column, and maybe some trunk and engine bay mods. I hear you can get the stuff really cheap on eBay.

    Not really; it just takes a long time to measure the wires and solder everything together, then affix it to the trim piece and put the appropriate connectors on. I did it in the course of an evening, then installed it the next day, so I can't tell you exactly how many hours I spent on it. I know it did eat up a bunch of time, though.

    My trunk lighting, by contrast, took about three minutes to install.

    The cargo lights sound good but if its going to take a lot of time I'll pass on it. What I really want to do is the front footwell lights and some engine/trunk lighting. If you want to hook me up and include that in your order that would be great and I can pay you back next time we get together.

    Well, that's why I was going to do the work for you -- all I need is to borrow that trim piece from you, make the changes, and give it back. Minimum effort on your part.

    All right, I will let you know when I am ready to place another order.
