Default my new puddle lights!

Well i saw this mod on here, and decided i needed to do it as well, as my mom and a few friends have pretty near broken their neck on my steps at night. Thanks goes out to Asur for the help finding the dome light wire in the dash!
heres some pics and vids of my mod. all in all a simple and inexpensive mod, 20 bucks total.
items,
1-5m roll of water proof leds from ebay,
1-25 foot roll of red and black 16g wire
1- 6 pack beer of choice ( My home brew was my pick of the day)
1 hour install time.
what i did was, Locate the green plug under the removable panel on the driver side of dash. wire 13 is the dome light wire that i tapped on to. from there ran the power wire out through fire wall, and T off, one to driver side and one across the fire wall to passenger side.
from there ran the power and ground wire down the inner plastic fender, and under the spat guard on the corner of the rocker panel( did this on both sides)
attached the wires to the strips of leds.

next cleaned the bottom of the rocker panel well, and then wiped down with alcohol, and allowed to dry ( enough time to consume a couple brews was sufficient). then i stuck the led strips along the rocker pointing down.

attached the ground to a good point, and reconnected the battery. Bam now i have step/puddle lights that come on, and dim along with the domes when the doors are open, or doors unlocked.

sorry for the long post! again thanks Asur, and also hriczko806 for the idea!

also a vid of them working, sorry for the quality, the wife wasnrt here to operate her camera








and the video
