    great work done. you have tempted me to fit them in my car as well. looks really nice and functional also when you drop something in there.
  2. Coming from You, it's a compliment - Thanks!! :wow

    In fact, I am not fully satisfied with the passenger rear (the one where I stuck the LEDs onto a metal rod. It's much higher, (I am sure you will understand what I mean) so light doesn't reach till the rear seat :confused:

    I was right in judging that the strips have to be perpendicular to the road (or parallel to the width of the car) but I think I have missed on the height. Will post 2 pictures from another angle which will show clearly what I mean. Till I figure out how to rectify it, these will stay! :wink:

    Shekar,

    Somehow I too have fixed this @ rear. Let us meet some day possibly in the evening to visually measure the intensity of light. Please note that the light will stay down as we have stuck the strips to the bottom of the seat, which is nearer to the footmat in comparision to the front, whereas we have enough height at the front so that the light can be splashed to a larger area.

    This idea may be a bit crazy. How abt rear Cabin Light at the roof??

  4. Continuing my earlier post, this is the image I was having in mind. As it can be seen, light on the passenger rear is cut off while it spreads more on the driver side.

    Can you post some pics showing exact position of your LED strips? Cause you've achived pretty high area illuminated by those LEDs.

    I got it from Torque, Jeevanbheema Nagar. It costed me Rs 4000 and am not sure of the brand. I thought 3D was the brand name.
