Tube (you could use a toilet paper tube)
Two wire strips (about 5" long)
Soda tab
Christmas lights
Drill or knife
Wire strippers

Step 2: Making the Holes

Make three holes in the tube for the lights to go through. You can use a drill or a knife. Mine are an inch apart. It's up to you how far apart you want them.

Only solder at the yellow highlights where there are arrows.

    Thanks so much guys!

    Thanks please vote!

    Yes you could just use a flashlight however a flashlight focussed on a small spot. This eluminates the entire glovebox.

    I have a similar device in my own glovebox. I believe it's called a "flashlight".

    Thank you.
