Default My Ambient Lighting install 2.0

I posted some pics and comments in this thread showing my first attempt at ambient lighting on a budget:
http://www.f150forum.com/f38/led-amb...ghting-161382/

Well, for my birthday I received my replacement lights and finally got around to installing them....

For this setup I went with LEDGLOW's Million Mini Set that is expandable and uses usb cables for power connectors.

This kit also has sound activation that responds to music playing. I have a short example of that here, I'm still working out the buttons on the remote as some functions are activated with sound and some aren't: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcxmJ...ature=youtu.be

My hope with this kit is to use the expansions to get presence in the cupholders....I still haven't found a good cheap alternative to the OEM option yet.

As you can see in the pictures below, I mounted the control module in the center console and ran the usb cord to the bottom of the chairs where I mounted the LED strips with double sided tape. Very painless install. :-)

You mentioned mounting the module in the glovebox. In the first pic you posted it looks like a pic of the console and not the glovebox. Can you elaborate a little on this? Are my old eyes interpreting the picture wrong or is there another pic that goes along with the install?
