Sorry, I’m confused.

Do you mean on the outside of the car or inside?

If inside do you mean the actual handle you grab to open the door, the little box below by the window controls, or the “oh [email protected]” handles in the header? I’ve seen ‘em all lit on a box somewhere or other, and have a number of them on my own box.

On interior I’ve used the LEDs sdsnybny has with great results. I bought mine at Pepboys as a 3 pack made by Pilot for about $7. I could post a ‘pic if you want. On exterior you’ll probably want a 3” flex strip. I’ve seen ‘em around on line, but forget exactly where. As for tape, I hear everyone saying that the red stuff by 3M is the bomb.
