I am looking at putting the ribbon LED lights under the seats to illuminate the storage area, ballast area (both), and other. Has anyone put their own in and if so where did you purchase them from?? What should I look for (300 led per 5 meters is what I am seeing but I am also concerned with light quality)? Any help or guidance would be appreciated!!

1) the ribbon type are not very robust for a high traffic area where they can get bumped or disturbed. They will not last long.
2) Do not rely on the thin film of adhesive on the back. It will not last long.
I would suggest a rigid strip or pod that can be hard-mounted if either of the above apply.

I put led strips in my boat up under the overhang by the speakers and I put super glue on the back of the light strip so it would hold up better, I got them at k mart for $15 for two of them, I have only had them in the boat for about a month now but they still work great and light up the boat really nice! You can see them in my profile pic or avatar, whatever you call it, but I will be adding more this winter on the tower to shine down into the boat. Not sure if thats what you are looking for though, but I think if you tuck them under where they wont get beat up on, they should hold up.2008 Mobius LSV
