670 posts in this topic

the day lights look good, and i like the mirror lights. is there a way of hooking up you mirror lights so when you open the doors they auto come on with your interior lights.

here's a clip of mirror lights dimming with interior lights & fading out

Looks sweet mate,

Have you done the spacer section on the from discs, worth doing silver too,

the aerial pictures look fantastic and I love the wing mirrors with puddle lights, sadly my doors dont have the loom for these but they really look the business,

Top work done mate,

Top work done mate,

i did cover most where i could with small paint brush.i didnt have all wiring, i added 2 wires to work it & enable in elm327 DDM & PDM section on gem, but tezza discovered you only need one wire with uk mk3 style switch to work. my mods are clearly not as good as yours.

Swap you mate,

Your focus is a much better base model to begin with,

Rear electric windows, folding mirrors,

The Mk3 model must share an earth feed with the wing mirror light unit in some way or perhaps they used the door as an earth,

If you bolt a ring terminal to the body this will work as a negative feed, so you too would only require a positive feed,

The ford puddle lights would be an easy mod for you now that you have positive feed from the interior light in there already.
