Cool. Looks awesome.
Could you at least please post a close up of how the wire is routed to A pillar? No one wants to reveal that secret
Nice touch Are rear passengers welcomed as well?
HAHA not yet...
@ patchyboy:- I have just started typing notes in a notepad will collate and add with Pics in a couple of hours.
Cool. Thanks man. I have some plans and wanted to see how the wires are routed.
Special thanks to Italia-linea & Aniket for making the puddle lamp a possibility for my punto
The Defenition of Puddle lamp is simple
A lamp in the bottom of a luxury car door which illuminates the area into which a passenger is going to step when the door is opened.
But i wanted something different just other than a lamp. A fiat should always stand out.
A brief history about happenings just as a warm up.
This idea of puddle lamp was put into my mind by one of my colleagues. I started searching on net and found that there were a lot of sellers offering puddle lamps with logo. But hardly any in India.
This was way back in december and was in continous discussion with few mumbai members on this. Kedar was in UK at that time, so i checked with him the idea of getting it shipped from UK.
Unfortunatley dropped the idea as it did not make sense in paying a heavy amount for this mod.
Then italia-linea found a seller in delhi who sold all other brands other than FIAT. When enquired why so he informed that "no one buys FIAT"
I am sure italia-linea must have laughed on his face over the phone call.
End result was that the dealer agreed to put a link on e-bay India and start by selling 10 boxes.

Once ordered and opened the contents of the box are in pictures below
Well this is how it has been hacked from the pillar. Secondly one more option is that the same Brown runs till the roof light. If you want you can hack from there.
For safety reasons the + 12 volts can be hacked from the fuse box itself.
Great work Shadowfax, Very good quality DIY and perfect installation. The logo is perfect round and bright.
Thanks for the pictures. This is not exactly what I looking for. Power source is fine. What I am really concerned about is the bit of exposed wire between the A pillar and the door and the chances of that getting frayed.
I am looking for that bit exactly.
i want it...i want it...i want it:wow:clapping
Ok got it. This hacked wire from A pillar runs till the door hinge from the a pillar itself, concealed.
Then it comes out of the rubber and goes in the door through the gromet itself. I have taped heavy layers and also used thick coating wires for connection.
Tried lot many times by opening and closing the wire, it doesnt come in between and wont break off.
