Hi guys.

This is my latest project.
A simple, but very useful MOD, when parking in "dark" places with no streetlights (I live such a place).

2 small 1W "Eagle-eye LED spots" has been used for this project.
Cables are connected to the roof-light wires, so they'll fade in/out in the same manner, and are activated from the remote-control to the car.

Hope you like. If any questions just ask...

Very effective well done, and easy to follow pics but I don't think I'll be undertaking that little big job

What control panel is that you have in your dash (2nd to last picture)

Sorry for the delay...Actually I found that many of the eagleeye LEDs looks the same, but claimes to have differerent wattages. The ones I bought said 1W, but frankly speaking I don't know if they are maybe similar to 1.5 and 3W types.
I haven't measured the exact usage yet.

Here you can see the type I got:

Bought 2x3W.I will be using them in the boot, hooked up to the center console light.
Will probably get the car between January 1st and 10th, so I look forward to installing all this stuff.

stratcast: Did that too, but not with this kind of LED, as they are focussing the light too much.Will show pics later...
