This might be the simplest and cheapest visual light mod.
And it looks amazing like TRON and fits perfect for the eclipse.
I have never seen this done before so i decided to try it myself.

  • 3 kinds -- wireless, cigarette lighter, or fuse box.
  • many different colors
  • ranges from $6 - $15
Step 1: find a spot for the wireless switch like this one.

Step 2: connect the power to the glow wire and wedge the wire near the hood opener thing like so (ignore the extra wires at the bottom right)..

Step 3: Weave the wire around the dashboard tightly like so...

Step 4: With tension, find the middle of the wire underneath the dashboard and tape it like so...

Step 5: fold the tape underneath the dashboard like so...

Step 6: continue weaving the wire around the dashboard but it will most likely not stay wedged here so place 2 dabs of glue in these spots (avoid hot glue or gorilla glue, it melts the wire and changes the color of the light)

Step 7: after glue dries while holding wire in place, finish weaving the wire and wedge the end into the corner of the glove Compartment.
