So the plastic clear strip that's in the door now that lights with a very dim orangey red comes away?
Replace whatever it is that's plugged into that with the drivers from the amazon thing and then plug the new light strip into that and run it in the space where the clear plastic strip was?
Sorry for the basic questions! I'm actually an electrical engineer believe it or not 🤣
The optic strip (light guide) in the doors remain and are modified just a little to work with the RGB led lights (tiny little nub/catch needs to be cut off). This makes it easier to go back to the factory setup if required.
