Did the Mustang dome light mod today. I am debating weather I should paint it gray to match the headliner or leave it black. Either way it looks good.

I forgot to post a pic when I did it so I am adding it now. Back in the end of November I used my engine hoist to remove the bed off my Ranger so I could replace the fuel filler pipe & the 2 hoses from the pipe to the tank to fix the gas leak which was a code tripping the CEL. While I had the bed off I checked the fuel sender because there was another code for the fuel gauge system & found the float arm/float had come off the sender/pump assembly & was laying in the bottom of the tank. I clipped it back on the sender & re-installed the sender/pump assembly. It has been working good since then.



After repairing the fuel leak & the fuel gauge I replaced the O2 sensor bank 2, sensor 1 & that took care of the last CEL code.

The weather was Spring like today (61 degrees) so I installed the Explorer radio trim panel. I just need to get another fog light switch for the lights I will put on the safari light bar when I buy it.

Thanks. Now if the weather would just stay warmer I could get more done on it.

These were delivered today, now I have to decide where I want to put them. Either right under the Ranger XLT emblem or down lower on the fender like the Fox Mustangs with the 5.0 emblem.
