Mirror/reading lights

Anyone go to the salvage yard and get one of these rear view mirrors with the reading light in them? If so, any pics? I'm thinking of putting one in. I like the Chevy Impala style good size mirror, tiny bright lights.

Did it in my TJ after taking the lights out of the speaker pods and putting in tweeters. I installed LED fexable strips to the back of the pods and tapped them into the existing wireing for the lights then I ran wires thru the roll bar pads and up to the front of the windshield. The mirror was 'donated' by an old chevy. I even cut the harness off so I could unplug the mirror if I wanted too. They even dim just like the factory ones did. I don't remember what wire colors were what but I did trial and error till they worked.

hope this helped a little, if you've ever played with wires this is an easy job.
