Default '06 xB 'Retired' and Getting Interior 'Restoration'

So I've gotten to the point that I'm going to 'retire' my '06 xB as a "daily driver" and I use that term loosely as I work from home and travel for work and put, on average, less than 6,000 miles a year on it. I recently picked-up an almost 200,000 mile '99 Jeep Cherokee XJ and that will become the new 'daily' beater...as beater as it can be as it gets completely modded also.

The xB is in line for a full interior 'restoration' and I have gathered the following parts for it:

OEM center console
OEM carpet front and rear
OEM floor mats and WeatherTech All-Weather floor mats (just in case)
OEM rear cargo cover
OEM (Rostra) cruise control
OEM security system
Full interior sound deadening kit from 'Sound Deadener Showdown'
OEM Scion xB door sill plates
TWM short shifter with brass base and cable bushings
OBX blue/carbon fiber shift ****
LEDs for grab handles, foot wells, cup holders and glove box (grab handles will light-up with the doors and the foot wells and cup holder LEDs will be on switches with the glove box on a switch that will turn-on when you open it)
OEM Prius map light that will go above the driver/passenger area as lighting there sucks
Katzkin full leather kit (black with black/blue Barracuda inserts, embroidered headrests, cobalt stitching and material for center console and door panels)
Rostra seat heater inserts

Still figuring out what I'll do for a stereo but it will have an Android-based headunit and likely two JL Audio 12" subs in a cabinet in the back and what I'll do with the gauge cluster and the silver interior 'highlights' (thought is blue to match the wheels, calipers, etc. or a 'hydro-dip' blue zombie pattern, which might prove to be a little too much for my taste).

Everything is here and attached is a picture of the test embroidery Katzkin previously did for my approval that is on the headrests in cobalt.

Im liking this set-up! Possible you can give a run down of the LED install? I looking to add them to the interior as well.

More than happy to...it's just not going to be a fast process as the exterior work will likely come first.
