    Black out grill and driving lights

    Thanks!

    Black out grill and driving lights

    Ya, that is what I thought. It looks so much like a undercover cop, so much so that cars move over to the slow lane on the freeway when I come up behind them, lol. Good luck with your mods. Merritt
  3. My bumper on my 2014 Edge was badly chipped and scratched so I took it off and had it repainted. Whiling it was at the paint shop I sanded and painted the chrome parts to match the black on the vehicle and as I had some PIAA driving lights looking for a home I found a great spot to place them. Using a hole saw I cut two holes in the low grill as seen. I mounted a piece of aluminum angle by glueing it to back side with epoxy designed for plastics. Using a relay, I taped off the high beams so they come on with them but I may retire the to be on all the time as they complement the switch back running lights nicely. I have the 12” Phoenix radio which allows for a front camera so I purchased a license plate camera to add on . This works great for parking haven’t a clear view now allowing me to pull up tight in parking lots. i also put a bug deflector across the hood that hides all the chips up there. I have a new Ford oval coming with a black background to complete the look. The head lights are upgraded to 6500 K HIDs and all others are LED. I just got my LED bulbs to put into the PIAAs so they will match the color of every thing else. i was very impressed with the results, since the windows are tinted dark it makes the SUV look like something like the FBI might use, LOL. .

    Electronic turn signal relay

    Thanks Omar, I was suspecting this when I could not find a relay listed any where. What would you use for a forscan modual? Merritt
  5. I am changing to LED turn signals and would like to change the relay to an electronic relay instead of load resistors. I can seem to find one for my 2014 Edge SEL. Anyone know where I can get one? on the same note, where is the exact location of the signal relay? Thanks for any help
  6. Every vehicular I have owned has terrible headlights except my BMW which has HID’S, it is amazing how manufacturers still sell old technology especially in light of how better lighting is so inexpensive now. I have up graded all my vehicles to after market HID including my 2014ford edge.and they are 10 times better. I can’t remember which manufacturer I bought from but I discover that the.bulbs could be installed in the wrong position. I finally took the bumper cover off and removed the head lights out to ensure I got it right.

    play video on my Ford Touh

    Have you ever forgotten to use your turn signal, accidentally gone faster than the speed limit, ran a a stop sign, hit another car, played your radio too loud, had a burned out head light, received a parking ticket, used a cell phone while driving, forgotten to buckle your seat belt, driven with a cracked windshield, eat or drink while driving?0
  10. Yes, understood but I want get the brightness available. While on the subject has any install driving lights on the edge? I have some great 4’ PIAS Looking for a home. I ha the front end off an it looks I could use a hole saw and mount them down in the black plastic grill way down low. Thanks Merritt
  11. Thanks Gadget I seen these before but are they the brightest?
  12. Where is this located, I see what I believe to be the detector on my dash near the front, middle. I want to keep my headlights on at all times without using the switch so I thought I could cover the sensor to achieve this. Thanks, Merritt
  13. Does any one know which are the brightest fog lights to fit the stock location on my 2014 Edge, I would like to get them with switchbacks if possible. The stock ones are pitiful and look awful through the day compared to my HID's. Thanks, Merritt

    Rubber accordion sliding gasket install

    I got up on the seat with the sun roof full open with lots of light and was able to see where the lower edge snaps in to the bottom extrusion. It will likely be troublesome in the future
  15. I bought my 2014 used a few weeks ago and just noticed that both of these gasket/seals are disconnected. Can some one explain how these are supposed to be reinstalled? It appears one side mounts to the glass and the other side goes to a stationary track on the roof. Any help is appreciated.
