All you need is a flathead to pry out the little lense things. I'm pretty sure they're 39mm (6411, 6418). I think i bought 39mm: it was a tiny bit too small for both the dome light and license plate light (they are the same) but it was an easy fix.
In my opinion, these 3 bulb LEDs are perfect, and cheap!

I ordered dash lights and dome/license plate lights from Amazon. As soon as those come in I will be installing this great new instrument panel. Maybe I will also be able to colormatch my hatch trim before then.

My LEDs arrived yesterday so I got my new dash installed along with those. Changed out the center dome light for an LED. I also finally hardwired my dashcam power source into the car.














On a very unpleasant note, my rear motor mount bracket (attached to the engine and the dogbone mount) has given up on its existence. I popped the clutch a little more forcefully than it wanted me to and it broke into pieces. Ordered the dogbone and the bracket from Tousley Ford online store for about $80 plus shipping.



This looks like it has been missing for a long time, but I am NOT replacing the entire transmission housing for this bolt. Any ideas on how to fix this or will it survive without it?

LEDs are the best. What's the camera for? And idk what to tell you about that trans bolt mount lol.. Good luck with the dogbone mount replacement, looks like you have minimal rust under there.

Thanks!

I got the camera because as a 16 year old male, any accident would be immediately thought of as my fault. So, I at least have a second set of eyes for some form of proof.

New Mount and bracket are finally installed. I hate not having a functional vehicle so hopefully it doesn't go out like that again! I'm really glad no transmission issues were caused and hope that it remains that way.

I got a new (used) bumper and fender this Saturday, and got it installed sunday. No pics yet but I will get some up soon. I was able to find them in silver and the bumper has fogs too!

The guy that sold me the bumper and fender has a set of 5-spoke SVTs that he said he would sell to me for $150. Only one of the wheels is damaged, but it is very easily fixed. I'm hoping to pick those up in the next month or so, then setting out to find some decent tires. The donor car he has also has working AC and I'm going to get everything I can off of it (compressor, accumulator, condenser, lines, etc.) for $100. I ordered an O-ring set from RockAuto. So hopefully I'll have working AC next week!

Partial Update

So after nearly $300 and several hours of work, my A/C partially works... frustrating but I accept it and I'm moving on to more important things!

One of those things being a rear seat delete! It's raining now, but I've got some progress pics. After completing the first section I decided it needed to match and I constructed the rear piece.







Here you can see my full project completed, but it's a little overshadowed by the upcoming project! The SVTs were picked up for $140, but they do need some good ol' Tender Loving Care. I'm going to try and take care of the physical damage and then paint them up.
