How did you get the cables to the inside of the car ? did you drill anything ?
Sorry for the late reply, email notifications aren’t working. I drilled a small hole in the bottom of each door, put in a grommet, ran the wire through to the door light wires inside each door, and then sealed the grommets with RTV. I see you got yours done though, good job. :happy107:

Got it done, I went through the grommet in the firewall on the driver side and then routed the wire to the courtesy light. It works great.
NICE! What brand and part number for led strips and did you tie into the footwell wire? May do this for the wifes Tahoe and daughters Silverado ( if the silvy has the wiring)

To remind from an earlier post...... Check out the LED strips at West Marine.....
Lot's of choices, all weather proof, many lengths.

I bought a roll off eBay for cheap. You can cut them to length and solder the wires on; there’s contact pads at each led. Then I used the kind of heat shrink that has glue inside that seals the wire connection. The strips have high strength peel-n-stick adhesive but if they fall off you can use RTV to glue them up. Mine have been on for 3 years.
