Interior lights
 
How do I get the interior lights to stay off with the doors off?

Pull the fuse behind the glove box, #4 I believe.

I did a minor mod the other day to mine.
I left the fuse in, but undid the screws that hold the fuse panel in and flipped it around to get at the black wire on the ground side of the #4 fuse. I cut this and soldered in a couple extension wires and a little switch. I installed the switch on the left side of the glove box when you open it in a hole that was already there.
Now it's real simple... open the glove box, flick the switch, and pop the doors off :D

Not quite as elegant as the above poster, but this works for me.

When not in use...

I just pushed in the switch, drilled a hole and insert the pin. Word of caution, this will not remind you that your headlights are on when you shut off your engine.
