Interior Lighting

When I build the overhead console in my truck, I want to install a small directional light that I can use to spotlight the ashtray on the dash with.

Are there any cool web sites or catalogs that offer such lights? Or should I resort to the scrapyard and look for something there?

You da man, Willys36.

Yup. That's what I meant ... only I'd like something a whole lot smaller if possible -- that one's 3 1/2" x 2" ... I was thinking more like 2" x 1" ... but this one will do the trick.

Thanks, bro'.

Do a google search on conversion van or RV lighting

Here's a couple I found that might work for you

http://www.v-sales.com/lights.htm

http://www.rvandvansurplus.com/aircraftlights.asp?Vehicletype=Van#

Also, search ebay on "aircraft van light" Here's one
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=4529959912&catego ry=34204&sspagename=WDVW

The boneyard's a good place too. My 2000 Sierra (pickup) has two directional lights built into the overhead console. I bet a lot of cars/trucks/vans have them stock. Maybe you could get something to work.

I just came across this on e-bay.

Don't know how much it will go for, but it might be useable with modifications as is.
