    Well, how many sexy women do you have at hand that come like that? :D Sorry, I couldn't resist that.

    Light looks great. I wanted to do something similar (but hooking up to the signal light).

    This is way up behind the pedals on the left...this harness has a big rubber grommet around it..on the bottom of that grommet there is a nipple you can poke hole in and run your wires into the engine bay.

    One more thing before I put the strips on my truck I tapped them flat to the kitchen table over night to let them unwind...then I cleaned the f@&! Out of the metal on the truck with rubbing alcohol and rags then as I was applying the strips I used a heat gun to warm the metal and the double sided sticky tape...I only peel about six inches of backing at time I hope this helps. Use caution with heat gun and your paint !

    I was waiting for this.

    Check it out... I f'ed up when I spliced into the brown wire ok... I made it work though. I had to cut out the shitty supplied splice connector which left me a tad short of where I needed to be...
