Default Engine Compartment Lighting

While down on the Chesapeake, my friend Pete (way2slo) finished up my custom lighting. Let me know what you think and then I will tell you what it is. The whole set up cost me $100. We changed all the interior courtesy lights to red LED's as well.

I don't have a real good shot of the interior LEDs. There are four courtesy lights in the cockpit, two under the rear seats and one in each footwell in the front. It gives a nice red glow to the cockpit.
You can kind of see the effect in the first pic.
The second shot was with a super bright flash.
