Brother, sorry for the late reply.
All good man, been playing with the Blazer one. Just got it back so now I really want to do the one in the Monte after seeing how good this one looks. Were you able to use our dome light mount as a point of securement for your console?

Also, you probably already know this but get rid of the stock bulbs in there if you havent already, they suck! 😂 I put red LEDs up front and a really bright white LED in the back. I got them on amazon and i can give you the link to the bulbs if you want

Yeah, I had to wire up the dome light with a universal switch so familiar with those 2 posts. Just wasn't sure where it would fall on the console to be able to mount them. Much appreciated

Hahaha, oh yeah. Appreciate it, I already ordered some of the bulbs for the Blazer. But going to make an order with superbrightled for both consoles on what I need, I was able to get the reading light bulbs out but not sure how to take them apart. Looks like a 194 inside but is connected to the big clear piece you push on, how did you separate them?

Yes, inside is 194. You mean how to get the actual bulb out or the housing itself?

Ok, im out here right now, and popped them in and out. no tools used. Check it out. You can twist the housing out with the bulb in there already with two fingers. Reinsert it the same way. Depending on the size of the Led bulb, you can either insert the bulb from behind or in front of it. Also as pictured, i have a superbright led next to the led bulb im using, and i can confirm the sueprbrightled 194 will fit in this socket and work if you choose to use them for the bulbs!

The actual bulb, I used a screwdriver and pushing to release it from the housing. But once it is out, it has a safety or something keeping it together with the lens

Hmmm, mine appear to be different. They have a lens on them
