VonKrause Well I finally got my rear dome light installed and with the LEDs in it. Took some custom wiring and some on the spot problem solving but I did finally get it done.

Also did the rear license plate lights in pure white LEDs too.



Out with the old and in with the new





All my LEDs on, including the foot wells and under the dash



IPhone does not like that color



Bright light is bright



My back seat now leaves the darkness

VonKrause Got the 1st gen lamp and it doesn't quite fit properly, so there is that, I cut a couple tabs off and it wedged in pretty good, I am thinking some hot glue is in my future. Also the plugs ARE different, so if you get a headliner out of a parts car BE SURE TO GET THE WIRING! I plan on soldering and custom attaching mine up since the wire harness can't seem to be found. Also the lamp that I got has map lights AND the center light so I don't think it's the one for that spot but since it "fits" I am going to run with it. Pics once the LEDs come in.

VonKrause Haven't had time to go hunting, by the time I am off work the sun is already gone and I am usually pretty hungry by then. Besides I should have a shiny new one today.

Miller88 What about a junkyard? I'm sure there's plenty of first generation with their fronts still installed ...

VonKrause Still waiting on the second one to come in, had to order it since no one in Houston has it. Should know tomorrow, also not sure yet if it is same bulbs for sure but will know soon.

Thanks for the info dude, since our (MK2) rear dome is the MK1's front dome that makes finding one much easier.



Now for the big question.... Is the wiring Plug N Play?

Not sure yet, I took the wiring out of the front of the parts car thinking the connections are the same, won't know till tomorrow since the only place that has the dome is FoMoCo in Michigan and I get it in then.

Install wasn't too hard, take it out through the front doors, it's easier. You will have to replace the hooks for hangers though since they are destroyed in the process of taking them out.

The headliner is different from 2 to 4 door since the B pillar is in a different place on a two door.

Should be the same. I doubt Ford made different bulb housings for the rear on a coupe vs a sedan. But I am not 100% positive.
