Awesome work Lenny. This mod is fast catching on now. I think red leds are best for it too. :)

Thanks to your Guides mate,
i wish i had my dimmer, im still looking for a control switch with a dimmer and with the front foglights and without the autolight setting on it for less than 80 :D

the lights look cool but even better when you can dim them, keeps getting better

Hi all,
Ive added another Led Strip to my focus today,
theirs no need in creating a guide for it because it ties in with everything Pree has done on this one,
i fitted a 3 SMD strip to the ''bird bath'' pocket in the rear of the centre console by lining the strip in the centre and drilling three 4.5mm holes for the led's to beam through then stuck the strip to the panel with some electrical PVC tape, then spliced it in to the cup holder lights that i also fitted following prees guide in this thread,
very happy with the results and a nice glow in the rear now as well as the front matches in nicely, and these are all run from the interior dash light feed so the illuminate when the driving lights are switched on and they can be dimmed along with the rest of the interior lights, if you have a dimming wheel on your light control unit. http://www.fordowner...O_DIR#/cool.png

Hey Nice work Lenny , looks great , i'm going to copy that for sure i have some spare LED's :)
I have also been looking at a Clock , for the same area but finding it hard to find one skinny enough to fit in there lol , i have emailed asking how deep they are. Thought a nice red glow analog clock would finish it off with those LEDS lenny , what do you think?
