That's a huge switch. I've just got this tiny rocker switch tacked to the roof of the lid.

Last night i installed 2 x 1Meter led strip lights.get them off ebay for next to nothing. I tapped into the power for the boot light and mounted them up high so they dont shine in your eyes and im so impressed with the boot now.so much light its crazy. Lol. This morning u checked them and some of the glue had come lose.no big surprise.it didnt feel all that sticky to begin with. Picked up some "tarzans grip glue" and ran that along the back of the leds and let it sit for a few minutes before sticking ot up to the top of the boot again. Just checked it again now and its stuck like a magnet now. Very simple upgrade to do. The blue wire is the positive wire to the boot bulb. I used "positaps" to tap the wires.piece of cake

All I did was the same, white LED strip (about 90cm long) stuck to the underside of the parcel shelf and wired to the normal light lead. Simple, cheap and quick for much more light in the boot.

Still need to wire in some for the foot-wells in the car.

I was toying with footwell lights but i picked up a set of LEDs for the interior from ebay for about $20 search CJ leds and your will find them
The amount of light the shove into the cabin is mind blowing and im not going to bother with foot well lights now
