For the floor lights, I tapped into the keyed cigarette outlet in the front. The middle row uses the same circuit. I hid the wires underneath the driver side door jam for the middle lights. I didn't do the rear seats because I plan on taking out the middle rows when storage is needed. I used 6 smbs per seat.
For the cup holders, I used a couple A23 12volt batteries.1 powering two cupholders. Made a simple parallel circuit. Bought the battery holders from ebay for $3 for 5 and bought a couple small on/off switches from radio shack. Here's a link. The battery and switch is in the middle of the cup holders. I glued the switch on top of the battery holder. A pretty tight fit. But turned out well. Used black electric tape on the led strips so it's not that visible. 3 smbs per cup holder.
For the overhead console, I didn't remove the entire console just the panel that holds the Rear controls and reading lights. Pretty easy to take out. Just used my keys from my 91 civic (not too sharp) to pop out the clips. Went back on nice too. I just fished the led strips through. Used 15 smbs per side. I tapped into the reading lights (Red wire and ground) and removed the red wire from the reading lights so they won't be on while the blue lights are on. The reading lights can still be turned on because of the third wire. You just need to press on them to turn on. I should probably do the same for the front reading lights so just the overhead console can be turned on. I will still have a problem with the front dome light because that cannot be turned on manually like the reading lights.
