New Source for Miniature Light Bulbs

Recommended Posts

I have first generation Contours and Mystiques with the illuminated door handle pockets.  These miniature light bulbs with a green coating on them have been obsolete for years now from Ford, so I have cannibalized all I could out of the local junkyard.  Since they decontented this feature pretty early in the production run, I have figured out how to replace them.  These same bulbs, but lacking the green coating, are in all of the old-style (no reflector) high center mounted brake lights.  Simply pull the bulbs out of the sockets and dip them in Tamiya Clear Green paint and let them dry.  This same technique can be used to change the colors of the pocket door lamps as well as the instrument cluster simply by using a different paint.
