That’s sweet, I need one of these, the FORD Emblem not the Tails.

This next mod isn’t LED related, as most of Buggman’s stuff is but this shows that he is talented.
Terry did the mod I did the finishing and painting.



Suggestion to Terry:
1) Cup holder insert, maybe a piece of plexi with holes in it and low light LEDs to illuminate the area; not too much light, oh ya liquid proof.
2) Head Light **** Indicator with LED for the positions. Maybe a surface mounted flat LED setup behind the dash for each position and one in the ****…
3) Someone else can fill in more if they want.

Damn, those LED's look bad *** in those night pics.

I wish I would have done that to my Ranger.

I haven't taken pics of his stuff but I have his 3rd brake light, LEDs for a dome light and for my front corners.

I've bought from him twice now. Props to his craftsmanship, prices and his customer service.

I've seen someone post a pic of a LED light strip they got from walmart that they used as an under hood light. How about a sweet custom LED under hood light from Buggman? Maybe one that is LEDs at all four corners of the underside of the hood, or something like that? All the pics above look totally sweet!

Thanks for the props everyone!

You guys/gals keep coming up with ideas & I'll try to keep coming up with mods for 'em.

I've had a couple requests for the led cup holder rings... it's on my list of "stuff I need to do"

The headlight indicator led mod is another frequent request. I did a little "testing" but kinda got side tracked with a few other things lately. I'm hoping to get a 3mm led inside the actual **** or at least something clear that will let some of the light from behind shine through.

I almost forgot how cool those turns & corners look Steel!!

For the 06+ fender badge led plates, I now have a dual intensity version that allows them to be on "low" with the parking lights & "high" when the turn signal comes on. If the parking lights are off, they'll still blink accordingly with the turn signal.
I'm working on a retrofit for you guys who have the original single brightness version. If you're interested, please drop me a message & I'll try to get you fixed up

For custom ovals, I can do 4 1/2", 4 3/4", 5 3/4" & 7" wide ovals. If anyone has access to some old Ford escorts, taurus', probe, mustangs, etc with the smaller 2 1/2" to 4" wide ovals, I'd like to try my hand at modding them too.

Here's a pic of my latest radio bezel.


I modded pretty much everything possible on this one.
Added a double din & re-sized the front opening to eliminate the little spacers required with most double din's.
Added my patented 3rd oem fog switch opening on the right side & even added (what I think it the first of it's kind) 4th oem fog switch opening on the left side where the cig lighter socket used to be.
Molded the area below the head unit to hold my voltmeter & added some mini button switches to control the reverse camera function & "don't watch dvd's while driving" function disable.

I try to do one of my "regular" mods every month or as I'm able to do them but I'm always thinking of new ideas.

I've replaced the wimpy under hood light with an led strip, but I can't find any pics of it
Much better more than that old bulb ever thought about. I have a few more ideas in mind for under the hood lighting too. For those of you who don't have the under hood light, I believe many older Ford cars & trucks had them & it should be pretty easy to install one on your truck.
