Ivwas goibg to use white leds so it has a nice look to it not boy racer neon crap lol.

"teeroy" did something similar to what you're looking for but with smd led strips. I know his are blue but you can get them in white. You could ask him about how he did it anyway.

Shouldn't be too hard, just tap into the existing interior wiring and it should be fine. If you don't have door lights or footwell lights, it might be a bit harder to find wiring. you'd have to use the main dome light wires which run down the right A pillar i think.

Cheers

Do a google for "puddle lights". You'll find tons of stuff.

Some cars come with them as standard, some under the door like you've suggested, others under the side mirrors.
