I'm after a descent interior light. Standard one's a joke. Bought a 12V fluro from Autobarn worked great for a month then died. Is there a good interior light on the market, help required because I carn't find one.

On my 60 series, I've simply added one of those clear square ones like the ones you can use as reversing lights. They come in round and rectangular shapes as well. KMart, Autobarn, etc sell them.
Cheap and easy to fit, works well.

I velcroed a Versalite fluro to my cargo barrier and wired it to a switch on the dash. Worked well. Mal T.

Goodsy,

I replaced my Patrols interior light with the interior light off a Ford XE Fairmont Ghia.

The light is a gret deal better than the orginal allowing me to actually see stuff when looking around and the bonus was now I have map lights that can be turned on serperatly at night when looking for where I have to go.

Usually around the $100 mark from ford wreckers or try pick-a-part for about $15.

cheers

James T

Goodsy, Whitworths are now selling 2 flush mount LED lights, one white, one red, which would be suitable, though I don't know how bright they are. Low current draw, and the red one would be handy, if you needed an interior light while driving. Happy Christmas...

try using LED globes in standard fittings, they are a lot brighter - look at this site, ready made globes and not a bad price - http://www.geocities.com/george_tlc/led.html
I added an interior light from a Corolla (any car will do) to the rear door of my Forester and changed globe for 3 LEDs that I made myself (needs to have 6 LEDs). I am going to replace all interior globes with LEDs from George, easier than DIY - mine was a bit of a mess!

Return the fluro to Autobarn and 1. ask for refund 2. ask for better product. They look after you. I've recently been through this with external rear-vision mirrors. Went through three products. All vibrated too much. They refunded, even though they were grubby and finaly got in a better product overnight. Interior lights are so varied and many. I fitted a couple of lights in the old troopie designed for boats. Can't find a brand name on them, but got them through Autobarn years ago. Caravan supplies might also be worth exploring.
