BumbleBlackBee Ok Blue I've been looking to your ideas, but I also know you haven't been around lately I hope you are well...but this is what I did to my trunk thanks to you...

I have added two led lamps cause the light inside the trunk is very poor, this things are awesome and work well they have a magnetic on the back so they stick in metal...I thought that was pretty cool so no wiring or crazy stuff...just push a button and magic now I can see better at night.

Time needed: 2 minutes
Cost: $5.00 each lamp

Then I added some hooks too for the shopping bags etc....I think is a great idea cause my bags are always all over the place, with this they will stay in one area and things won't get out of the bag...

Time needed: 1 minute
Cost: $1.00 "s" shape and $1.00 the big hooks

Hope you like, I'm working on some other stuff will post some pics soon.

bluefront I never could find a line to the trunk area that was a constant 12V. So I had to run a line under the carpet, under the center consul.......all the way to the dash. I think I used 14ga wire so there was less of a chance of voltage loss. I spliced it into the standard Focus lighter socket wiring......which is a constant 12V. I put a separate fuse on the circuit (10w). Been working fine.....

poisonedblack Hey, do you have any "how-to" on how to do the 12V accessory? Where did you find a 12V input device?

Sonicbluezx3 do you have to test your extinguisher or replace it yearly? i'm not sure about how all that works. I like all the ideas man, but I think the only ones I would use are the extinguisher and the foam padding... you are right about all that noise! I put sound dampening down, but it only does so much.

bluefront Here are a few more mods you've never seen....

A water leak alarm system for the trunk (I'll probably put another under AC evaporator at the pass foot-well). This will detect water entry into the trunk, before it causes any problems. Leaks back here usually end up by the spare tire. This device (Home Depot $10) runs off a 9v battery, has a loud alarm that continues as long as there's moisture, and has an external sensor on a 6' wire. I mounted the controller by the tire also, but you could put it anywhere.

This next photo shows the 1/2" foam pads I have under the spare, and around the opening (noise dampening). A set of jumper cables can be stored back here around the spare tire.

And I bought a new tool bag (Lowes $19)..... this one is slightly larger than the previous bag, and has a lock arrangement for the zipper opening. The pad-locked cable is attached to the rear of the bag with stainless cable ties.

Last for today.....I installed some brass grommets at the edge of the trunk carpet. This allows the carpet to be held up out of the way, for removing the spare. Grommets are an easy install with a small kit....Happy Modding.

bluefront Here's what the hatch reflectors look like at night......I'm standing about 30 feet back with a small flashlight. You'd think there were lights up there....
