"converted back"... sound like me. Almost everything I mod can be reversed if it doesn't work right.

Already you are a step up on me. Most of my mods don't work first time round.

I call my first attempt the "prototype." Some times there is more than one "prototype."

Works very well, in fact it lights the area and makes it easier to see the locks. Next I converted all the interior lights to warm white led panels, each has 48 3528 SMD LEDs on them. Using T-taps I tapped into the 12v circuits, this way regular bulbs can still be used. Very bright and pleasing to the eye.
Hi, I followed your link to the grab handle (I want one), but I don't think I am seeing the right thing. Which product exactly is it? A light bar, or something else?

No it's the LED lightbulb to retrofit into your existing lighted grab handle.

Added a green LED to the dash in a location I can actually see. It is paralleled to the indicator in the genset switch. Got tired of not knowing the genset was still running while underway (couldn't hear it and the light in the switch is totally obscured by the steering wheel).
