Rear seat lighting.

What's up guys, I have a ton of LED strips and I'd like to have a light source for my rear seats (just for convenience purposes). I don't want to stick a random LED strip at the top though lol, any suggestions?

Re: Rear seat lighting.

Could cut into your headliner and mount some lenses up in there, and run the LED wiring just like any other wire in your car.

Re: Rear seat lighting.

i've thought about doing this in my 5th gen, possibly just between the roofline and rear glass, as long as you could have a lens or something that helps direct the light

edit: with like a bar of leds

My buddy stuck a strip on both sides of the back window shinning into the rear seat. looks great and not noticeable.

Re: Rear seat lighting.

Decided to run the LED strip at the very top of the rear window, looks clean other than the middle part and side (where the wires are run).

The middle has this little plastic section that I didn't notice until I started putting the LED's on, >.<

Any ideas on how to cover wires on the side? I'll post pictures of all the lights later.
