Thought I'd pass on details of the lights I have used on my conversion. It's basically made up of 3 types, these being:

The OEM light fittings with led bulbs, spotlights and small LEDs in roof. I'm really happy with the results. He are the links:

LED bulbs Best £1.99 I've spent for a while:

Spots Expensive, but very bright and worth the money:

Small LED's, just cut off the transformer and wire in:

Sorry, can't upload pics at the moment as I'm doing this off an IPad.

The Spots are in the boot as I thought I'd need the light in there but the led builds in the OEM fittings are so bright you don't, but the spots will make great reading type lights when I've got my caravelle bench to the rear of the van. I have the 10 LEDs off a switch close to the sliding door , mounted in the roof. Here is the switch :

Again pricy, but worth it. The 10 lights give a subtle lighting effect, with oems for brighter requirements.

Hope this helps somebody, took me a while to workout what I wanted to use, but it's all workout well.

how did you wire the leds-through the transformer or straight of the standard wiring?

The 10 LEDs arent that bright, but that's what I wanted. Background lighting, just enough to know what's around you and not get glare in the tv monitor. The £1.99 led bulbs are really bright, they are a little short for the OEM fitting, but just give the terminals a quick pinch together.

Spots are also mega bright, but very directional.

Only problem I've had is the accidental cutting of a wire once my one piece roof was fixed in place. This will be easily fixed, when I get round to it.

If you use the switch I have, just be aware it's quite deep, so you need depth behind the fixing panel.
