Does the mod still work of you have a black backing?

|starfuryt550||Ps, since you have an Svt all the cluster bulbs would be t10 bulbs.|

No, you won't be able to.
You will need 3x standard t10 bulb sockets from a normal focus cluster, as well as a brand new faceplate. You can disconnect the EL sheet from the main gauges and leave it. Plug in the bulbs and that will work, but you'll need the metal-monkey.co.uk or speedhut faceplate. You can't use the SVT one at all. It has a non-remove able filter, unlike the standard focus non-EL faceplates.

It's a t10 bulb if you have the 2000-2004 with the bulbs and not leds. If you need SMD leds like in the pics above, they're 3528 size (plcc2).
The 2008-2011 focus uses plcc4 3528 leds.

|Burkeboy||I would like to do this to my Focus too but I want the bulb to fit right. Does anyone know the actual bulb size?|

Actually, the soldered in LED's started in 04, ask me how I know. There is a quick fix, buy this:
After you get your black clip off, take as much of the material off the side that is closest to the mph needle housing and cover the old green led's with electrical tape, then hot glue the new panel in place over the old led's. I had to filter the brightness with 2 layers of red copy paper, it was hella bright. This is what it looked like before I filtered it, so yes, changing the color on 04 and up led's for the lcd/odometer display can be done! I wired them into the headlight switch wires to work exactly as it does stock.
You can make out the actual 6 led's on the panel though, light spread is not as even as the stock lighting, just a warning. I will get more detailed pics up of the current output up tomorrow night.

i believe this would work for the odometer...
but i don't know about the rest of the gauges. i think that is a whole different thing.

|zx3zach||Would this mod work with the black-faced guages? I love how the blue looks on these and I hate the green that are currently on mine. So if anybody has and tips or anything for the black guages that would be great! Thank you!|
