Looking for advice about hiding wires for interior LED strips

Post by dorpz » Fri Aug 16, 2019 9:17 pm

Howdy.

So I have a 2016 5 door 1.4 energy ecoflex and I'm looking to put in some of those silly interior strip lights that illuminate the footwells.

The way I intend to run these lights is from a USB cigarette lighter socket thing (the 12v socket).

What I'm wondering is, is there a safe way to get the wire UNDER the trim or carpet?

I don't want to experiment and end up tearing the flooring or snapping bits of trim off permanently.


Have any of you done something similar?


I'll have a pop at it this weekend and if it turns out looking decent I'll post some pictures.


edit: bloody hell I should nosey around more before posting, just saw a great thread by CorsaVXLineMatt saying how he did his.
still, I'll leave the thread up unless someone says I should get rid.

I'll shoot a video tomorrow and show you how I hid my cables. Its really simple and takes about 10 minutes.
