Oh you rotten tease. :P
I must admit though, I had an ignition light on an old Honda and it does look very tidy.
I tend to put my ignition key in before I sit down as it's easier than fishing around behind the wheel.
As I have the tendency to say to people- it's tricky to find the hole when there's no hair around it. ;)

Awesome little mod this - hate not seeing the ignition slot when its dark - suppose LHD cars face inside so ford never thought this would be needed. Don't help that there is the gap around the barrel - in the dark and you stick it in the wrong hole :blink:

Going to have a proper read of this thread tonight and see what i think.

Nice find

Well you know what they say about if you can't beat them etc, etc, etc....
I'm justifying this mod on the grounds of practicality rather than just coz i think it looks nifty. ^_^

Lenny,
Just a couple of quick questions, where can i get the correct bulb holders for the footwell lights - so as to screw into the existing mounts, what ampage of wire to use, and do i run them in series or parallel from the ignition ring light feed?

Hi mate,
you can run them in series to save weight in the car, fit one to the end of the cable, then splice the drivers side one in to the cable and then splice the cable to the ignition light, id purchase 4metres of cable just to be safe but you would probably get it done with 2metres, ill add links to the items.
the blue wire on the ignition light loom is positive,

two of these

and depending on what colour of light you want in the car, i have fitted 5 smd w5w bulbs in red
