    Hey guys I was wondering if any of you guys have done something similar to this on your door switches. I'm coming out of an STI where I had my door switches modified by a guy so they looked like this.

    The way the illumination is stock looks very similar to ours... the drivers side window switch is illuminated but nothing else was. It was very convenient and I'm wanting the same thing done to my new truck. Does anyone do this for our trucks?

    I've contacted him but he hasn't gotten back to me yet. I really liked the look of it and if he was able to do it I was going to have him do my moms 4runner too.

    So those were already lit up you just had him change the color of the LED? Is that right?

    Just the button for the drivers window, the rest of them had nothing. And he changed the color too from the stock green to red. The STI has a funky interior lighting color scheme...the dash lights up red but the rest of the interior lighting is green (same as the base impreza). I sent this guy my door switches, HVAC controls and my clock and he changed everything over to red for around 75 bucks, IIRC.
