Hey guys! Last week I was talking to DeAutoKey about a custom set of interior LED's and we came across one of the projects they had been working on for a while. Pretty much what it is, is a 48 led light strip made to mount in the trunk. It plugs into the bulb housing for your current trunk light and can be mounted almost anywhere in the trunk. I took a couple of pictures as I went along, sorry for the crappy iPotato quality.:pic:


This is what is included in the kit:

So this is a before picture with current amount of light your trunk light puts out:

I chose to mount mine on the top because it is close to OEM location and the light output looked better there than anywhere else:

AND... just because it's awesome, it's color changing...

And to top it all off, a very crappy quality video of it scrolling through all 15 colors!


Overall the install was very simple, pretty much all I had to do was plug it in and then place it in the trunk. The light output is absolutely insane compared to what I'm used to, and let's be honest it's quite funny. For how much DeAutoKey asks for the kit, I would spend it again and again. It was easy to install, it looks great, and it's just one more cool thing to do to your car!
