I emailed Paul a few months ago and he said he was out of stock and no immediate plans to make new ones for now.

That is what I was thinking too...that for the GTS this would be wide enough and it looks like the green and the blue both look green and blue when in sunlight and they will look even better when lit and at $11.99 you just can't beat that and it appears they just need to be plugged in to a 12V DC power supply (like our you won't even need the little box/converter that comes with them...)

For those who still plan to make this illuminated door sill on their 928...

A more elegant way of connecting the wires is to guide them from under the sill to the front, remove the trim and sneak the wire under the liner up to where the cable sleeve is located that holds the wires to the door. Place back the door trim.
Remove the light in the door. Now, find a passage through the sleeve to feed the EL-panel wire through. You may find this to be difficult. It seems that the inner sleeve (around the wires) inside the outer sleeve (that is connects the door to the pillar) is not through and through so you may end up feeding the wire into the sleeve around the wires. Reverse, try another spot. It can be done.

Next pack the power converter for the EL-panel so that moisture stays out and also insulate the high pitched sound a little. Put inside the door cavity. Connect the wires for the converter to the wires at the light. One wire is gnd, the others are perm.12v and switched 12v. Obviously you need the switched one. Close up and ready to test.

regards, Theo Jenniskens,
928gts, the Netherlands
