How to tap into trunk wiring of 2013 GT?

I would like to add a couple of LED light bars inside the trunk of my 2013 GT to get more light. The problem is I don't want to tear up the whole trunk to get to the wiring nor do i want unsightly wires showing. Since I want the LEDs to go on and off with the trunk light, I need to tap in the wiring at the bulb. Not sure how the paneling comes apart. Any ideas?

Looks like you need to find the yellow wire with green stripe. It's a 10amp DC circuit, so make sure that it's going to be safe for your LEDs, or you will need some kind of transformer.
Thanks for the inputs. I ordered these lights and got today. Plan to install this weekend...

I installed pretty much the same thing in my trunk as well. Turned out great, and VERY bright. I got the ones that are flexible, and have adheisive on the back, so they will just stick to the top of the trunk. Should turn out great.:bigthumbsup

I put in rgb light strips with a 3 dollar controller from eBay. Just wired into trunk light with some 18ga wire and scotch locks. Super simple.
