I used strips in tubes from Super Bright if I recall correctly. Everything was plug and play with a controller at the helm. It lights the bulge and the cockpit. Multiple colors, audio sensitive, etc.

Here you go. Super cool. Easy to install. Idiot proof. Bullet proof. I paid $150 in 2007.

I'm sure other companies have similar kits. Streetglow's website says NEW kits are coming.
You may find a NOS Streetglow kit on the web.

Strips from Superbright Led's here. Ditched the OE incandescent housings on each side of the bilge and used their wiring for the led's. OE switch already in place on the dash. Did the same in the gunnel pockets.

Please don't make me post pics here.

I put these in. They work great and put out a lot of light and look pretty good as well. Post #235
