Footwell Lights

Hello All,

I was thinking about fitting some sort of footwell lights into my Spider. I have replaced all the interior and puddle lights with white LED's and I think it would look good to have the footwells light up with the interior lights also.

Has anyone done/looked at this? I guess they would need to be wired into the existing interior light circuitry (not footwell lights). I would want them to come on/go off with the main cabin light, would also be cool if they come on if the cabin light is manually turned on.

Does anyone know where the wiring might be for this, without having to go up the pillars and through the roof lining to the light itself. Also, does anyone know if this will have any adverse affects on the CAN BUS?

Thanks in advance!

I tried to do this on my 159. Only place I could get a supply from without upsetting the canbus system was the switched live on head unit!
Only prob was that as soon as I put the key fob in the footwells glowed red until I pulled key fob out again.
I wanted mine to be wired into the sidelights so they came on auto when it started to get dark but couldn't find a supply....
