How did you end up wiring your load resistors? I'm curious as there hasn't been any 100% confirmed method posted of how to install LED tails. It's on my list, but the more research I do for instructions, I just find more misinformation.

Took some pictures of my car downtown. Just used my phone so quality isn't that great. I probably should of washed my car, but it certainly still was pretty clean! First time I actually took the time to find good lighting. I am no expert at photo shooting by anymeans, nor do I even begin to know what I am doing other then touching a screen to take a photo. All suggestions for the car, or my photo skillz,yo! (J/K) would be appreciated.

They sale LED tail lights for our cars. I have them. Yes I know I bought them off ebay but I've had them for over two years now and they still work quite fine.

Big surprise, you've got ebay tail lights...

I'm referring to Crice8 installing LED bulbs in stock housings. You need load resistors and I haven't found any solid info on how to install them specifically on our cars.

Those tail light bulbs are the stock ones, they are not LED. The ones I was referring to are my license plate light bulbs, thus why I provided a link for them. They have load resistors built in.

balls!

You said 6 LED bulbs so I assumed you meant 2 red bulbs, 2 white bulbs, 2 plate bulbs!

to install the load resistor all you have to do is connect one end to the blinker wire. if you have a test light just attach it to the wires till you find one that blinks haha. then attach the other end to the ground wire from that plug. and your all set. but if you dont use the load resistor all you get is a faster blinker as if you have a blown light

It would probably look silly without a wide body kit since the mk2 Focus is already kind of tall and skinny... But I'd still be interested to see it.

If I've got time, I might try to do a rendering of what it could look like.
I know that quite a few people I know swear this car is an escort. Hell I even remember on the first day I looked at it at the dealership thinking damn, this reminds me more of an escort then a focus.
