Good news # 1....

I was at a motorcycle show this weekend and found these Super Bright White LEDS that I am going to mount on the bottom of each side of the dash to light up the foot wells. They came in chrome or black housing and I picked the black so if they hang down at all, it will blend into the dash's color (Don't think it will though)

Good News # 2....

I just received the Delphi MyFi portable XM radio. I can set this on the dash and with the built-in antenna and WITHOUT WIRES, I can transmit XM radio to my SSR (or any other car) radio. ALSO, if you are going to be somewhere that may not have access to the sky (satellites), you can RECORD 5 hours of music from XM and play it back at anytime! AND, in case the signal is weak near you, it came with a car kit, home kit and clip on antenna for your clothing for jogging or walking. That's right, three (3) separate antennas!

One more update, found out that computer controlled things don't always act the way you think. Example, the LED lights come on when you open the doors, but do NOT come on when you press the light switch on the mirror! Interesting.

**The wire you tapped to power the LEDs is a +12 volts with the lights mounted to ground, this is also one way that the mirror lights work with the door.

**The mirror lights are also connected to a constant +12 volts. When you press the button on the mirror it connects the light to ground and disconnects the power from the door switch, to make it work when the doors are closed.
