I could send you pictures if you'd like on the process and walk you through it.
    that would be great. I wondering if this would work for ambient lighting will driving or if you use it at additional light to the "robust" interior light the Micra came standard with?

    1. you need to buy a "mini" fuse tap although the fuses are mini low profile it still works. Then find a circuit that will allow 10 Amps (I used the window washer fuse)

    2. You're going to need to attach a red wire to the new fuse tap you installed which will then go to a switch with a negative wire and a ground wire. Run the ground wire to any exposed metal (I used the clutch bracket)

    3. Splice the wires and run them to the lights.
    4. Lastly make sure to secure any loose wires as you don't want them to get in the way of anything. (don't mind my messy wiring lol)

    I went cheap with mine and just got some LED strips that got power from the 12V plug in. I'd post a picture but someone went through my car and actually took them.
