My buddy and I put some waterproof LED strips in my ice chest then hooked them up to a micro switch and a pin so they would turn on and off when you raise the seat cushion. I think I'm gonna add a couple more strips but thought I'd share what I've got now.(Crappy pic)

I used the WFLS-x30 Waterproof Flexible Light Strips from Super bright LED's. They're very tough and have a 3M sticky backing on them. They're incased in Silicone so bottles can smack em and you don't have to worry to much.

My buddy rigged up the micro switch which is pretty damn trick but really not necessary as LED's draw so little power. We did it because we could and to add to the effect when people open the cooler. Mine is on a strut and hinge so it works where as homeboy aboves Tige probably wouldn't as well.
