    So I work a lot at night, and I hate killing my night vision.
    Prior time in the military accustomed me to using red lights at night to see/read, and I want to try and see if there is a source for red LED interior lights available?

    None at all or in the cup holders either. I just tapped into the parking light circuit and ran some LED strips under the dash.

    If you wire them to work with the door switch, you'll have to run a wire that has +12v on it all the time to the LEDs because the door switch switches the -12v.

    There are a couple threads on here somewhere that detail how to do it.

    Oooh, you guys know what would be even cooler?! Dual mode interior lighting with a "tactical" switch to go from white to red light.
