Default Interior some light

How do you feel about two in a four door? And switch under dash or door activated?

It's your car, and you can't have too much light.

I keep a magnetic light attached to the underside of the gas tank. Simple and works great.

Soooooo what are you doing in your car that you need more lighting ? It's more fun feeling around in the dark! My L 31 Tudor originally didn't come a light but some one before me installed a light in the headliner just behind the drivers head. The light was turned on by door switches which was ok but I changed it to a dash switch, it can be turned on going down the road without opening a door!

I had this same thought because the dome light in my Victoria is over the rear window and very much inadequate in lumens. I converted the dome light in my Victoria to LEDs, but this was futile as I could not get enough of them into the housing to make a significant difference.
