hey guys.,
i have a '97 eldorado, and I want to do a map light mod over the center area of the ceiling, so i can have a map light shine down on the driver and passenger side..
has anyone done this ?
what maplights did you use for it?

i tried an overhead center console from the same era of a deville, but it did not fit..

i guess i might just install some oem general purpose map lights that they sell in the auto parts store.. ,but i thought i would check and see if anyone has found anything a little classier looking for this.

there just is not enough light from the standard side inside lights on the eldorado.

my 01 SLS has Three map lights. One shines down twords the shifter, and the other two shine on pass/drive seat. Purhape retrofit it in your car.

I purchased a $9.99 Energizer lamp with 3 LEDs. It's a Tri-clops: 2 white beams with projector lenses, and a red one in the middle. It straps to your forehead.

It is LED, so batteries will last forever. Why don't you try adapting it? It has a narrow, focused beam, and available "red" lighting for night time. Pretty small, bright, inexpensive--no wiring. It doesn't look bad either... maybe you can find a way to attach it?

Just a "value" thought.
