I don't know of any place where you can just buy them and your all set. I do know that they can be made. Oh..remember, SEARCH BEFORE POSTING. Many answers can be answered by doing a simple search. The best part about it, if available, you find the answer right away w/o having to wait for someone to respond. to the board!

THere is a how to somewhere where you put a piece of brake lighe repair tape or somthing behind the needles. Also the Focus comes with orange or red needles depending on the cluster you have. Black clusters have orange and gray clusters have red.
I beleve the new Cougar needles will fit the focus. They have a differant base and differant designed red needle.
Ther may be some other fords that have needles that fit but will most likely be either red or orange.

Are our needles Lexan based? That page that is listed above will only work if it they are. IMO I think that blue is way to bright. good find, and welcome to the board!

It wouldn't matter unless you do that S2 color mod posted above. With that kit you need clear needles in order for the light to show through properly. The only color that will work from that kit is red because red is the only color that will glow through the orange needles (Remember our needles are colored all the way through the plastic, it's not painted on).
