      Not that pretty, but effective hole cover.

        I honestly always hated those clock pods on the '94-'98 Mustangs. It's like they ran out of clock radios and tossed it on there as an afterthought.

          I like it because my head unit won't display anything else when the clock is displayed. And the factory head unit was rather worn out.

            Backup camera finagled into the beast. The video cable reached the top of the windshield with about 1 foot of slack... maybe 2 if I count the wad in the tailgate, but I wasn't about to pull that up front due to the fact that it wouldn't have helped anything. Just stuck the monitor to the windshield.

              They are handy. I purchased a nice kit for my dads truck where the camera is in the tailgate bezel and the monitor is in the rear view mirror.

                They are very handy. I love the one in my 93.

                  I was going to do the mirror thing in the truck my mom used to have, but she traded it on something with a factory camera. Makes hitching a trailer a piece of cake.

                    yeah... no plans to check out the hitching ease of use any time soon, but using the beast this weekend for a trip so I'll have some backing up to do for sure from time to time.

                          Resorted the headlights. Did not get a before pic. Check out previous pics in this thread for an idea. They weren't real yellowed, but you can actually see through them now.

                              They do have small spider cracks across them, but they're still solid, so I'm gonna run with it. Will probably have to get new housings the next time they need sanding.

                                Expedition LED conversion complete. High beams needed a load to keep proper fog light usage due to the weird wiring Ford used with that to save one wire run. First pic is low beams and fogs. Second is high beams which disables fogs. Then low beam cutoff which is proper and then the high beam cutoff. I can say for sure this will not be any more blinding to oncoming drivers than the halogens were. The angle of the cutoff is downward as it should be (lines up with the way the halogens were angled).
