2016 Ford Transit Connect LWB XLT–Mod 7A [This job is DONE!], 08/16

I am happy to have completed this project.

This was tedious work.

I may shoot a tight shot after dark. For now, it is break time and food time. At least 7C will be in Chris’ hands. I have not yet said what 7C is. Stay tuned…

I will soon place this tile piece back in the van.

I am polishing it now [after these pictures were taken].

2016 Ford Transit Connect LWB XLT–Mod 7B [Cargo Area Light Problem Solved], 08/16

An elegant solution to a perplexing problem.

Did I say , PERPLEXING? There are many frustrated Ford truck and van owners who want control over their cargo light. My FTC has a 3-LED Cargo Light that [use to] come on when any door was opened and remain on for approximately 10 minutes, as long as a door stayed open. Opening another door caused the cycle repeated itself.

I accepted this until my cargo area accent lighting was installed. I’d have to wait for the light to go off to take pictures or incorporate the light in the photograph. I plan to use the van with a large screen monitor for client photo review–particularly after dark.  “Dome light on” is NOT acceptable! Solution, with pictures

Nearing completion [a bit of bling]…

A bit of glass cutting and some touch-up painting. Mod 7A is about done [earlier in the mod]. I think the guys at Signature Sound, Inc. will like this–better than mirrors and cheaper too. It was more work for me, though. My DIY results are always satisfying.
