: Cadillac puddle lights.

They are extremely bright and mount on the underside of the door panel. Should be fairly easy to install as we already have puddle lights so there's a ready power source triggered with the door open. I ordered 2 sets of these, one for each door....thought it would be subtle enough to appear stock, but kinda cool. Here's a set installed on a Mopar.

How about an update of the installation and some pics? Also, how exactly do you remove the inside door panels on a V?

this seems a bit silly to me, illuminating a logo on the floor? Really?

Only too me 2.5 years to install them. Not everyone's cup of tea, but I likes it.

Sweet! How long did it take to install, and would you post pics of the light fixtures? I'd like to see what they look like on the car. Thanks. :)

Mine were the hole drilling kind. Really simple install. Mounts completely flush.

1) Pop the bottom of the door panel. Don't even remove screw.
2) Wedge open with a soda bottle.
3) there's an obvious spot for it to fit about 6 inches behind the stock unit.
4) Clip the connector on the stock unit and strip the wires.
5) Drill the hole and install the light.
6) Connect the wires.
7) Remove soda bottle and put door panel back in place.

Nice! Looks much better, more properly finished, than the ones that attach to the lower edge inside the door. Thanks again, this project is a go. :) Just wish there was one with the V logo.

There are several listings that all look like identical products. This is the one I'm ordering.

Unfortunately those won't fit unless you cut the opening much larger and /or glue them in. You'll see what I mean when they arrive. That's why I went with the drill in variety.

Aww crap. The site said they would fit. Guess I'll be reordering. :(

Just ordered the drill type, and will return the other. Too bad, kinda like the Cadillac script.

The first pair of puddle lights arrived a couple of days ago, and still no word on the second set so I figured what the hey "how hard could it be?". This is the pair that are a bit bigger than the OE lights and require enlarging the holes. A Dremel with grinding tip worked pretty well, and wasn't hard at all. Just had to be careful not to remove too much plastic. Came out pretty decent. Even the boss liked them. :)

Pics wouldn't upload the normal way for some reason

Nicely done. You're a brave soul. I don't have a hand steady enough to use a dremel for anything but sharpening lawnmower blades and cutting off bolts. If I'd have tried and failed I would've had to buy a new door panel. Even though no one would see it......I would know. LOL

Thanks! It was a little tedious, and did take some time because of the constant stops to test the fitting of the new light fixtures. And I did consider the real possibility of having to replace the door panel if I shaved away too much, which motivated me to be very careful. Didn't want to have tell the wifey we had to pay $$$ for new door panels because I screwed up a $20 job! :)
