I have wanted one for a while, but they don't make them anymore, I think they are actually illegal....

It is the same size as the stock emblem, but I'm not sure how its done. When the emblem lights up a little bit of the blue lights up as well.

maybe the back is hollowed out. You could mask off "ford" on the front and spray a layer of blue paint over the blue, to make less light pierce it. Then up the amount of leds so it comes out a lil brighter. It sounds pretty sweet

I remember somebody saying that if you sand down the curved part of an LED, it spreads the light out more evenly. You'd probably have to do something like that as well.

I had those about 7 years ago. they were cool but they didnt last but a few months. It was basically like an indiglo nightlight. The colors faded, they came apart, they didnt like to get wet blah blah blah. They looked really good tho. i had mine on switches so I could leave them at the car shows w/o my lights being on. Lots of attention..

Same here. It lasted about 3 months and then Mine died and you can't replace the light inside.

No BS, mine has lasted me for over 2 years. The brand was Lumiglow, I still remember it from the packaging and I bought it from the site that was listed.

Found a site where you may be able to get them.

http://groups.msn.com/AmericanaStars

I found that link in a response to a question on Yahoo questions dated 12/29/05. Send them an email and see what they say.

There may have been legal issues with the Ford version since it lights up blue. This place still sells Chevy and Dodge emblems:

Jcwhitney used to sell them as well.
