1. A method of providing power to an electrical component mounted to an electrically conductive liner of a vehicle, comprising the steps of:

  • connecting a positive voltage input of said electrical component to a first conductive layer of said liner of said vehicle;

    connecting a negative voltage input of said electrical component to a second conductive layer of said liner of said vehicle, wherein said first and second conductive layers include electrically conductive particles that are capable of conducting sufficient electrical current to power at least one electrical component while providing structural reinforcement for said liner;

    providing electrical current from a power source to said electrical component through said first conductive layer of said liner of said vehicle; and

    providing electrical current from said electrical component through said second conductive layer of said liner of said vehicle to said power source.
