They are sometimes called map lights. I see some now on ebay from escorts and explorers. Many of them seem to fit into a housing like the front one on the Focus. Not sure how that would work as a surface mount in the rear. They do look cool, wish I had thought about them but all I needed was something to light up rear floor area. I rarely have rear passengers.

I found a Ford light where the vinyl housing was the same color as my headliner vinyl trim.

Might be my new project.
I bought a Ford dome light off ebay and screwed it into the roof liner over the back seats. Ran wires thru the liner up to the front dome light. Both dome lights work together and it looks factory. Yes, it's dark in the back with only a front dome light. Went shopping at night and left stuff on the back floor cause I couldn't see it.

DarderSauce I think you might be correct but I would have to pull that panel off to make sure. The instructions said to splice into the pillar power, no idea why. If the wire is behind the kick panel, yes it would make more sense to splice it in there.

focusfig I could very well be mistaken but isn't the same grey violet wire in the harness behind the kick panels? If so why not just splice there rather than remove the a pillar? If i'm totally off I apologize, just trying to figure things out for myself.

lol i actually bought a set of like 5inch strips i was going to do the same thing with but couldnt figure out a spot to put them...i was thinking cutting them into the rear pillars above the seat belt hole and hide them inside that with a push button to turn them on as well as hooked up to the dome light lol
