Default A Couple New Interior Mods

After months & months of trying to clean out the garage where I could get the truck in to do some mods, I finally made it just before the clock struck midnight on New Years Eve!!

Finally got my Explorer double lighted visors installed AND MODDED WITH LED's.








I think I'm the only person crazy enough to put LED's in the lighted visor mirrors
If my reverse lights ever go bad, I can just open them up light up everything behind me HA!

I still need to clean the fabric a little better & wash the mirrors, but they don't look bad now.
Unlike so many mod threads I've read on installing the visors, my truck actually had one metal clip per side so I didn't even have to deal with running a new ground wire for the visors.
Power comes from the dome light constant 12v wire. I just happen to have some of the green/pink wire from the Expo gut, so even the wire is stock


Slight improvement to my dome light mod.





Changed the 6 led round center bulb to a 24 led panel, the outer bulbs are just 7 led plug-in's. I still can't look directly at it without sunglasses on.

I actually don't care for the look of the mustang dome's... go figure. I even have an Explorer dome that I thought about using, but it's still setting in a box.

The dome was probably the easiest... just some T10 base 7 led plug-in bulbs in the outer map light sections & a pre-made 24 led panel with a "round glass bulb" adapter for the center section.
I was lazy & didn't make my own panel for the dome light.

If anybody wants any of the led bulbs I used here, just let me know... I think I still have a few of the 7 led versions left... I know I have a bunch of the 4 led bulbs left. I might even have one of the led panels too.

It was a 98 Expo xlt. There are a few dirty spots, but I think they'll clean up pretty well.

My dome is plenty bright with the led's & I have some special mods done to the switch mechanisms in my dome light to control my led strips under the dash.
