[DML] Re: Bill's LED Floor Lights



Some pics I already had have been uploaded to #5939's photo album. You have to be a Yahoo user to see them.

There are 4 SMD array bulbs altogether -- 2 on each side. This is the passenger kneepad (also shows my *NORMAL SIZE* cigarette lighter):

The lights are wired in series from the passenger side A pillar, where they tap into the front courtesy light wiring, to the farthest bulb on the driver's left knee pad. Wiring uses bullet connectors to allow knee pad removal. Notice the bullets are keyed male/female -- it is impossible to reverse polarity (a handy technique to use whenever adding aftermarket terminals to a polarized circuit). Notice also the positive wire is purple, just like OEM courtesy light positive (NAPA sells purple wire). I used right angle quick connects to attach wires to the aftermarket bulb sockets, so all wiring stays naturally tucked behind the knee pad, nice and neat.

Another perspective of the passenger kneepad:

This clearly shows the SMD array bulbs. most SMD LED's have 3 circuits per chip, whereas hemispherical LED's typically only have one circuit. That is a major reason why SMD's are so much brighter. Note again the cigarette lighter.
