Those lenses are there for the European Cougars. They have running lights there and Ford just made a universal headlight assembly for both, putting the lights in the Euro Cougars and not in the US ones. Most people do just put LEDs in there and either have them come on with their alarm LED, turning signals, running lights, or headlights. If you go to a post in the general forum about Cougar Pics from Spain (or somethin like that) there is a pic of the car with it's running lights on so you can see what they look like in Europe.

Also you can go to Pep Boys and pick up some "Cruisin Lights", basically little tube lights that almost fit in there, I wrapped some electrical tape around the tube light to thicken it up so it would fit. Not really bright but kinda neat.

Oh yeah, and you can just hook them into your parking lights w/some T-taps from radio shack

The lights that blackcat is talking about are made by Lite Glow and if you are searching for them it is spelled: Cruise'n Lights
So far the cheapest I've seen them was $20.

i know its different for the 00 lights, but i put 194 LEDs in my mini lights on my 01 headlights...im sure that the wiring for these cant be hard....just splice them in with the parking lights....

one pic is the LED's at night (they are a lot brighter, my angle was off)
and the other is with the headlights on...u cant even tell.....

yeah, i'm contemplating puttin' strobes in mine. the only question is, can i install em in the tube itself, or should i go ahead and pop it out. if i do pop it out, will it pull thru the back of the housing or will it have to come out the front?
