    You will need to run 2 wires to the bottom of the driver's A pillar and splice into the correct wire for the dome main light. This is the switched earth from the main dome light.
    Run one wire to each footwell and into a light (breakers, ebay, etc.) then from each light to any earth.

    When dome light comes on, the switched earth becomes live and power flows through new lights into ground as well.
    The new lights must be wired in parallel or they will be dim.

    I cut into my footwell panels with a sharp knife, no problems and lights appear as if they were factory fitted.
