Are there any pics of how to splice the wiring together? I tried the search, but so many topics came up that I couldnt find it. Also which number for the fuses do you use? I think the lights are on 21 or 22 and/or maybe 3.

I tapped into the dimmer switch. Remove the side panel where your fuse box is and look for the wires going into the dimmer switch. There should only be three wires. You want to tap into the two end wires on the dimmer switch.

I used wire clamps from a hardware store to tap into the dimmer power like the previous person suggested. You want to tap into the outer 2 wires of 3 found going into the dimmer switch; ignore the middle wire.
IIRC the gray with blue stripe is your variable power, and the other brown one is ground.
