    Hi Pat,
    In most cases it is never too late as long as there is a way to provide a protected path for the necessary electrical wiring for the under cabinet lighting. Keep in mind that some under cabinet lighting are available with low voltage fixtures and wiring that may be installed on the surface under the cabinet. See the installation instructions that are provided with the specific light fixtures that you select.
