    Red Interior LEDs

    I just got around to upgrading my interior lights to LEDs and decided to change things up a bit so I went with red. Was kind of hesitant to go red, thinking it may be too overbearing but figured that the lights are cheap enough that if I didn't like it, I could always replace them with something else. I like the way it turned out.

    In case anyone was thinking about doing red lights, I like the way it turned out.

    I have red in my map lights ... I've never liked bright white lights in my face... at night, you don't need it and red softens the output.

    I just used regular bulbs from the ricer isle, not LEDs.

    If I could make them constant at night, Id feel like I was back in my Audi...which had a pencil thick red light pointing straight down between the map light and sunroof knob. You wouldn't know it was there, unless you put your hand or something up to break the beam.

    Russians don't take a dump, son, without a plan.

    Has he made any crazy Ivans?

    Yea what difference does that make?

    Because his next one will be to starboard.

    Why because his last one was to port?

    No, because he always goes to starboard in the bottom half of the hour.

    Can you tell me how to get at the various interior lights without breaking something, especially the overhead/map light?
