Bed Lights

A quick question.

I am looking to install bed lights. I plan on installing in those useless cubby's. Here is the question:

Does any one make a retractable spool for electric cable that could fit in there? (small version of the lights that hang from mechanic shops.)

Typically the lights will always be in there. Flat tire... I have a light on that side of the bed. Need some light as I take a leak. I have a light on that side of the bed. Fabrication is am option but would be cost prohibitive. I understand how the reel works. I just want something to store cable until I need it. About 9 feet x 2 of 14~18 gauge wire to each LED. Thanks for all the help.

Before the google acolytes tell me to use the internet, I have and I have searched here.

This is more about cord management than light choice. I am open to all information though. Just trying to clarify for some Pm's I got. Thanks again guys.

Late 80's-Early 90's Chevy trucks came with a retractable light mounted under the hood. Perhaps you could adapt that? Maybe throw an LED bulb in there also.
