well thanks to a hard afternoons work, well about 3 hrs actually :D i have both front doors done, and i am also making a tech doco about it :D and i must say i am over whelmed with the outcome, they look stunning, and in terms of mods, it was really easy just time consuming. any way here is something you have all been waiting for, pics :D so look and enjoy.... and be nothing less then inspired (well one can hope).

heyt hat looks wikkid :)
did you maybe think about putting another LED into the door handle there (not the lever / switchy thing to other bit :P )

i think it would look good all lit up in the same colour

most of the work is now done - just needs the LED to go in..

i liek it :)

Re: running the wiring and connecting it up, for convenience I used the factory speaker wires to hook up the LEDs when I did mine. I upgraded my speaker wiring when installing new splits but the old wiring was still there in the door. I just soldered the speaker wires onto the LEDs at the door and and then cut the other end of the loom back under the radio and connected the wiring up to 12v. I got power from the brown globe wire on the cigarette lighter socket, so the LEDs come on with the parkers or headlights.

Did you frost yours cooki ? It doesn't look like you have given the harsh spot on the outside of the handle. Give the LEDs a rough up and they'll give a more even, diffuse light - like mine here
