    so after seeing Redrum29's post I decided to tackle the mod myself.
    It was actually really easy and took about an hour.
    I would have like to solder the wires together since the LED wires are pretty small but I think they should hold up fine with the wire connectors i used.

    They leds barley stick out at all so there wont be a problem getting in the way of larger bottles

    A few drops of crazy glue to hold the clip and led into place!

    Ya that would be legit. If I wasn't so lazy I would rip the door panels off and do it myself, but if I did this then it would mean doing the back doors too. That my friend would require alot of time and beer, both of which i do not seem to have right now... Dude we have to figure this out to do a write up, it would def be sick.

    Well doing the doors like how I think you are saying is new to me. I guess I would have to do this at my parents house too since school is over in a week and I need an internship around the bay area somewhere. But seriously as soon as Oznium ships my backordered items I will seriously consider this. I need to find that link for taking off the door panels too.

    I just plan on running the wires through the rubber wire looms that are already there. and then drilling little holes and mounting the leds just like I did on the cup holders, but ill mount it towards the front firing backwards. I wanna do it to all 4 of them so everyone gets to enjoy the sweet little blue light :D

    well once you find out where you are gonna mount the light in there tell me... the resistor and led posts get in the way when i want to fit them in a spot that is too shallow. How are you going to get this? I was almost thinking of doing thin led strips on the inside of the pocket facing the inside of the door. this would be a little more expensive though, not so cheap free mods section material.
