I live on a road that doesn't have street lights or any other sort of ambient light around. It's pitch dark around here. My car doesn't have any sort of lights behind the seats so finding something at night is near impossible. I added these two LED lights which made a big difference and I'm quite pleased with the results. It isn't apparent from the pictures but at night they are brighter than the regular dome lights. The lights are white, not yellow at all. I highly recommend this to anybody with the same issue.

And added a trunk release button. Link

Those are cool, that's one thing I've always hated about the focus was no rear light.

My mazda has both front and rear I was very happy when I found that out.

Figured out that the squeal I have chasing down; replaced the battery under the theory that the alternator was working too hard and was squealing plus the battery was 5 years old, then replaced the alternator because the pulley wasn't smooth and I swore that's where the noise was coming from, then replaced the tensioned because that pulley wasn't smooth, then after digging on the interwebs found that this had happened to someone else and it ended up being the shop put the wrong size belt on. Went and got a .8" longer belt and viola, no more squeal. What irritates me is that the mechanic who put the belt and idler on wasn't suspicious that the van was squealing so loud I could hear my wife coming from 2 blocks away. So Monday they are going to have a pissed off me to deal with. And why the he'll would there be 2 different belt lenghts for the same van/engine?

Undid bird art with spray detailer and a rag, dusted off oak pollen, and fueled it up. 33.4 manual calc on this tank, the car says 33.0, pretty close.
