Type like:

BUT, with on the end instead of
Note: end with the .jpg and remove the ?action=view&current= part.

Very nice!

I want to do something very similar, so if you don't mind I have a few questions :confused:

What did you used? LED strip?
How did you wired that? To the dome light or the trunk one?
Any tips on the installation?

Thanks a lot!

Yeah,me too. The models that members have talked about aren't really to scale. The one you have looks pretty good.

I too wanted more light in the cargo area. I found a LED "dome light" @ Salvo's auto supply store in my area. The head liner just pulls down from the rear tail gate and you can get access to the OEM cargo light's switch. just run the wires from it to your new light. A small hole might have to put in the head liner or you could just run the wires near the edge of the liner,then push everything back into place.

Yep dale basically explained it.

I pulled the side light out and just "piggy backed" the wireing into the switch, it's setup so whenever the boot (trunk) is open the lights come on.
Got the led rope lights off eBay, 5m roll $11.99 free delivery from hongkong.

The fog lights are 800lumins each, there a "euro" beam which is a mix between a spot/spread. They basically throw light up into 30m trees, that's why I have them wired up into high beams, don't blind oncoming traffic

The HPI car is actualy a RC car, I'm a mad RC hobbiest/enthusiast, got it from tower hobbies. I brought it because when I ordered my Rukus was when Japan sunami hit & they had majour problems suppling a car for me.
