I quite like the 2017 dome lights inside the 2017 Escapes, however they are a bit harsh and will be improved by my removing the frosted dome, and putting in a layer of theatrical light frosted diffuser.
(The diffuser comes in big sheets and can be purchased at a serious photography store, or online. The main manufacturers are LEE and ROSCO if I recall correctly.)
So how does one remove the dome of the 2017 model interior dome light?
I will have to check that there is clearance inside the fixture, and also that the bulb doesn't get too hot. The diffuser is quite heat resistant, but I don't want any problems, of course.
Maybe I could setup a service of locating the best diffuser gel, cutting to size, and mailing to 2017 Escape owners all over the world.
Speaking of which, I saw in the ETI office that a handful of Escapes were sold to Asia - really? Does anyone know if they were shipped there? Just curious.
