Searching for the thread that a member had on lights he installed in the bottoms of the doors. They projected a Pontiac (or other) logo on the ground when the doors were open.

This, along with illuminated door sills from WR will be my "sanity mods" to keep me going through the winter months.

Anybody remember this thread? I'll keep looking.

I believe Oracle lighting does them, but there is a website with more and they're cheaper.... I just don't remember what it is.

GM Roadster was selling them, but their "product" business split off to something else... hope that's enough info to get you started..

Strictly Aftermarket seems a bit pricey to me. I got mine from MrKustom. They have many different logos to choose from, they even send a hole saw for the mounting hole. :thumbs:

Yeah, $30 vs $300 is a huge difference. I could quit buying 6packs and get a keg with a fridge for that. However, the Solstice logo would be cool and different that's for sure.

Has anyone put one aimed up under the hood? I wondered if they could be focused for that distance.

And oh, yes. The site indicates they'll do a custom logo for $69.95.

I had seen a couple cars with them at Nationals and went to ebay and bought them for $25.00. I've set them in one door but have not wired them yet. If you don't have any fear removing the door panel, making a hole at the bottom and some wiring, its really simple. I just need the time to finish it. Good luck.

This may be a dumb question but how do you wire these to turn on and off with the door? Would a simple add a fuse work? They look pretty cool for the price and I've been contemplating buying them for awhile but a bit hesitant when it came to the wiring. Also from a little bit of research is it true for the passenger side you can just run a wire behind the dash with a coat hanger? (or similar device to achieve the same result)

Further to cdflint's response...

Q: Would a simple add a fuse work?
A: Not really. The doors are switched ground, so you need a +ve supply (add-a-fuse) and ALSO tie them into the switched-ground lines per cdflint's link. Plus you have to route wires into the door from behind the dash, out through the firewall sides and into the door via an S-shaped concertina tube. If you're not experienced with automotive electrics, then don't try this!

Q: is it true for the passenger side you can just run a wire behind the dash with a coat hanger?
A: Yes, you can.

Getting ready to pull the trigger on these. Supplier cautioned me on my approach - purple foreground versus background.

Which one to you think will show up best / look best?

I like the bottom ones better!

I have a pair with the pontiac logo that I will be having installed along with my windrestrictor whenever I get around to calling the store. Hopefully they dont charge me a ridiculous amount for the 2 installations...I wish there were forum members close by (45631) that I could pay vs having a random store install them

Not sure about the purple :))) but the second one looks better. If however, you want them as puddle lights, then the first would be best, since it gets more light on the ground.

Note: I installed my own white puddle lights and LOVE them. Amazing how useful they actually are (not just for puddles).
