Parts required:

1) LED Light
Either a LED strip or the blocks should do, color choice is personal. I'm using block type (3 LEDs) white LEDs, 2 Nos for either side and couple of T10 LEDs for cabin lamp

2) Wire
I had wires left from my previous project (forgot about the spec / gauge) Approx 4m will be required

3) 2 way switch
This is optional. I'm using the 2 way switch to operate the foot well lamp in dual mode.
Mode 1: Operates with the cabin lamp (Door Switch / Cabin lamp switch)
Mode 2: Dedicated power (irrespective of doors open / cabin lamp switched on or off)

4) Snap fit connector
To have detachable / removable connection from the cabin lamp to the rest of the circuit. This again is optional. I used the one from one of my left out wiring harness.

5) Fuse & Holder
I ordered through Aliexpress and awaiting delivery. Will be installed after the snap fit connector once it is delivered.

6) Heat Shrink sleeves
Optional, you may use insulation tapes as well. But heat shrink tubes are safe bet with professional touch.

Tools Required:
- Wire Stripper
- Screw Driver (to remove the cabin lamp)
- Scissor (To cut the heat shrink tubes)
- Soldering Gun
- Heat Gun / Lighter (to heat the heat shrink tubes)

Output wiring preparation:

Soldered the snap fit socket to the cabin lamp circuit (No prize for figuring out the poor soldering, mechanical engineer is good at welding and poor at soldering)
Attachment 217195
PS:
I should have used a Fuse Tap instead of taking the +ve from the cabin lamp itself. Ordered the same and delivery delayed.

Loved the way you presented this DIY. Rated 5 stars [clap].
Question: If I follow you right, the 2-way switch draws +ve from cabin light source as well as an always ON circuit from the fuse box, correct?

PS - Please let me know when you come down to CBE, would love to say Hi.

+ve from cabin lamp source is always a direct line (in most of the cases I came across) and the door warning switch is -ve grounded. So either you take the +ve from cabin lamp or fuse tap both should work (and goes directly to the LED) and the control switch is operated with -ve from Cabin lamp or body earth (for switch controlled ON)

Get it from the fuse box (inside passenger compartment) with a 'fuse tap'

You can easily get them online if you can't find in stores nearby.
Amazon.in: add a circuit fuse tap
