Looks good man. How many do you have down the sides and where did you mount them? I was thinking under the door where that thin strip of metal is that the steps mount to? What gauge wiring is needed?

This reminds me how much i hate wiring

I've got 7 lights down each side. I got a set of pinch weld covers and mounted the lights to them. As far as wiring, I've got led lights so they draw practically no current so IIRC, the pigtails coming off the lights are only 18 ga. so I used 16 ga. wire. If you're using incandescent lights, I'd probably use at least 16 ga.
