Hi shawt.
From the look of the LED's you could wire them into the park light circuit. But they would be on all the time when the lights are on.
On my i30, i have backlit window switches, which can be used for a positive + supply. There is also a negative to tap into as well.
The door trim needs to be removed to access the wires.
I used these points to wire in some blue  EL Neon strips in my door trims.

I used to be a great DIY guy ( surprised quite a few of my friends with the quality of my workmanship) but seem ro have lost some of my skill and confidence lately. Something usually won't undo or fit etc... :head_butt:
