    Interior Light Mod - with Christmas lights?!

    Post  M1C4A3L on Fri Apr 22, 2011 4:18 pm

    Hi All,

    Me and ShadowSei have been busy again, this time turning a funny idea, into something actually quite good!

    I had a 6 meter rope light which we got after the Xmas sales for £11...and I said to Ant, "wouldn't it be cool to have this on my car somewhere?"...obviously we couldn't as it is for the home, and not for a 12v battery. I've always fancied having lights in my car, but don't really want to spend too much money doing it!

    This is what I had:



    So, Ant texts me one day, and says "I've bought you something..". Turns out that he had bought me an inverter which converts normal household plugs into 12v:




    So, I think you get the idea - household plug goes into inverter, which then goes into the cigarette lighter. This means I can use this lighting, along with any other household gadgets, in my car Smile

    Here's some pics of what we did:

















    (Image below - the sill cover sits more flush now Ant has drilled it down)













    Looking towards the back of the car from the front seats:



    Next, I need to change the dash to blue Smile

    Again Ant, thank you so much for the help with this! Couldn't have done it without you!

    Loving what we did here mike. in the ideas that came out like the bit around the parcel shelf cracked me up but you know what they actually worked. LOL

    I really like what we accomplished here when we did this i would probably re-create this when i come to doing mine. Plus its always nice to have household objects being able to run in the background. (Laptop being a bonus! i could do quick uploads onto the forum when i want to, and Karen can use her hair straightener's and whatever).
