    Looks like the interior of my Fleetwood at night. I changed all the interior lights to blue like you did but I left the map lights over the front seats white. I at least need to have some useful light in the car.

    nothing crazy just some 24ma flattop LEDs, got them for $15 for 100 pack with 100ohm 1/4w resistors, i used the same board i did on my tail lights. i recently added more leds for both floorboards and changed the door switch light to a single LED, floorboards and the door LEDs run of the dimmer switch and turn on with the parking lights. i ran them at 10ma to keep down the brightness

    After a while the blue becomes annoying too. I have them in my Fleetwood and had a leave a few white because it was starting to hurt my eyes.

    If you are a LED crackhead, doesn't that make you a "LEDHEAD"? Unless of course you love LED and crack, then you are a LED crackhead.

    Re: Im an LED crackhead...

    Here is my full LED interior lights look.

    1. Instrument cluster


    1.1. Instrument cluster in "regular" drive


    2. BOSE Stereo (pretty unique for a '97) - a looooot of work


    3. Headlamp switch


    4. Door window switches light


    5. Overall look (evening)


    6. Overall look (night) – Observe the steering wheel controls and shifter console (left heated seat button is hidden by the shifter knob)


    8. Even the CD Changer


    9. ...and the license plate


    10. Composite picture (observe the foot well lights)


    More pictures and hardware details here

    That looks slick. I could never do all LEDs to my cars though (interior at least) because it would make it look too new and would look out of place. I like the pasty yellow in the older cars.

    Re: Im an LED crackhead...

    Well in my case I would say is looking just right. A couple of weeks ago I was driving with few peoples and the dash board lights turned on (it was closing to dusk) and few minutes later somebody remarked, “you can tell these Cadillacs are upper scale, look at that wood look at those lights, is that wood real?”
    Well that was in the about the same time when my idiot cousin had a remark “that stereo look so cheap” but I had the perfect reply “what are you talking you drive a Matrix?” Then he tried to convince me that the wood trims are actually plastic (what is it with this people and my wood trim?). But couldn’t fail to notice the way he was struggling to mask his admiration for the steering wheel. Eventually he couldn’t help-it and said “you did something with this steering wheel?” (Trust me coming from him this is a huge compliment), “yeah I change-it!” and after spending 2 minutes literally examining every single square inch looking for some defect to take on, he gave up but had to say something “smart”, “Only you and the old peoples are driving this pile of metal”.

    Re: Im an LED crackhead...

    I know what you mean about some boneheads and their misplaced compliments when it comes to customizing an interior. I swapped out a "standard" leather steering wheel on my '97 Deville with a wood/leather one out of an Eldorado - after dye-ing it to match the Montana Blue interior. Then installed a wood dash kit and changed a bunch of interior lights to blue ones - and Voila! Lots and lots and LOTS of boneheaded questions about what I did to the interior - they just couldn't quite figger it all out.
