Left side of the strip

Right side of the strip

Front passenger side using just the double sided tape

Its definitely not professional, but it works and you can't see the led strip at all from the outside
Thank you so much! I rewired my passenger side LEDs again, this time like how you did it. But for the driver side, I seem to not have the plastic trim piece you zip-tied to. So I used 2 zip ties connected to two other wiring harnesses and another zip tie connected to a zip tie daisy chain connected to the metal steering column(?). It's not the cleanest install but it's secure and I'll see the footwell anyway.

I also figured out how to wire the auxilliary power for the footwell LEDs to come on with the dome light. The footwell LEDs turn on to the last set color and brightness when the parking lights are turned on. Auxilliary power is wired to come on white at full brightness when doors are opened and the dome light is set to door position (See Jephu's aka DIY Car Modz tutorial on youtube).

Auxilliary power does not work without the main power, so all of this only works with the parking lights on. I originally wanted to find the dome light wire in the footwell so the auxilliary power can turn the lights on at anytime the dome light is on, but I'm not sure which wire was the dome light wire and if it would even work. If anyone has any info on this I'd really appreciate it!

Here's where I mounted the driver and passenger strips and how the auxilliary power works.

OEM 16' Sport Pedal Conversion

Purchased the OEM Aluminum brake pedal cover but still need the footrest and gas aluminum pedal covers. I looked at installing the brake pedal cover and came to a problem with attaching it. Can someone with the Accord Sport provide me with a pic of the bolts that mounts the pedal covers the pedals?

Your welcome, always glad to help. I just noticed your have a sedan and I'm in a coupe, thats probably why the footwell was a little different. Right now I'm tapped into the cigarette lighter so i have to manually turn the leds on and off, thanks for posting that video explains the proper wiring.

I ordered the same Curt hitch and will install it in the next couple weeks. Any pointers would be appreciated. I'll post a follow-up with the results.

I don't plan to tow anything, just put a bike rack on there and keep it under 100 lbs total with bikes. Seems like a no-brainer, $100 for the hitch and I already own a tailgate bike rack. Installing roof rails and a bike carrier might be more versatile but is kind of pricey, and then you have a bike on your roof where it's more difficult to reach. Not to mention wind resistance, and no access to garages.

I don't even plan to install a wiring harness, there's no need unless you're towing something. However, it should be OK to haul a 1 or 2 motorcycle rail trailer. I would not put a real utility trailer on it.

Watched her get covered up in her first ice/snow. Didn't venture out since I'm not sure how the 19" Conti's will handle the slick stuff. Not very well from what I've read. Will probably do a quick test in the morning on my street where it's safe LOL.

They sure are. Just wanted to say (inclusive of all maintenance/modifications) Hondas tend to be much less of a headache to work on compared to other makes Ive dealt with in the past.

Not today, but couple weeks ago i installed these valet lights and wasnt bad for $15. i had wanted HD2 and they sent me HD3, and it fit but forcely, and worked. Called them and they said, keep it we sending you HD2. They sent HD3 againand they said send it we will send HD2. They sent HD3 again and just said sorry, its a 3rd party seller, we will just issue a refund so i just used the first ones they gave me which work for free. Really wanted to see if the HD2 was any better, but the HD3 works i guess.
Heres a link, although for Odyssey, works for accord
