Looks great! Where did you place the LED strip in the boot?

Are you able to link to cables, that will fit with the lamp? I guess, that I need to connect it via a split cable on the other boot light? But I am in doubt about connectors?

They are linked upto the head liner lighting used twin core black cable as I have black headliner so once door opens etc the light activates the same way. Very simple installation really so visible wiring at all.no canbus error either

Can you post some photos of your wiring and where to connect the cables?

As you can see ive added another boot light to the left. But i have also added an led strip to the inside lip of the car to brighten it up more. The total price was less than £6 for the extra light and led strip.



What boot net are you using? Are they GM or aftermarket?
Thanks!

Hey, I'd also like to know what kind of nets are those and how did you install them, especially the one on the side. I've got all kinds of stuff lying around in trunk and I dont want to buy raised floor since it makes the trunk smaller. Opel only seems sells one net for horizontal placement on the trunk floor which is not that useful for me.
