I cut the plug because I though the wiring was bad but it ended up just needing a few squirts of electrical cleaner in the plug so I wired it back in.

Not too worried about the heat but those are also the same places where road noise comes from so I'll be covering them up with the other half of the kilmat I have. I was just gonna do the roof and doors but it worked so well I'm gonna order more for the doors and use what I have left for under the carpet.

Re: "PayDay" my 2000 XJ Build

Looks good! I did something similar with led strips under the hood. I added a toggle switch instead of using the Mercury lamp setup. Also the sound deading is awesome. I did my roof and made a huge difference. Also did the the front doors and some of the hatch. I still need to get around to doing the rear doors.

I've taken apart the underhood light on 2 or 3 XJ's (& the very similar unit on a Seville STS) & cleaned them scrupulously but only managed to get them to work sometimes, before failing again & going thru' the whole performance another time - of course, after a while I gave up. The pathetic amount of light, even with an LED replacement for the bulb, just wasn't worth the aggravation.
