that's very good information, thanks. I see how the footwell leds will follow the roof lights, but for constant on you need another 12V line, presumably with an over-ride switch somewhere?
From the cig lighter or another 12V in the back of the fusebox?
Maplin have a centre off 2 position rocker switch and I was thinking of putting it in the space for the heated front seat switch cutout, with one position full and the other dimmer. This could be fed either from an ignition 12V from the cig lighter, or plumbed into the roof lights as you helpfully describe.
With 2 high brightness 5mm blue leds in series, 270ohms would be full and something like 560/680ohms dim? Might be more reliable than a pot unless you get a wirewound.
I can see a suitable hole for a rubber grommet/led in both panels. The driver side hole is easy to get to without unscrewing anything. The passenger side is more difficult to get to the back of the hole at first glance.
