What a build
Yea, I'm interested in seeing how they work once mounted on the car. But it's going to be a while. Watson's Streetworks has a comparison video on their website. It needs to be downloaded before viewing, but gives a good idea of the difference between this LED headlights and halogen lighting. The profile and sound of the car they're mounted in should seem familiar.Can't wait to see the lights working!
A couple of follow up questions ... 1) Are using LED's with a high and low voltage setting for each bulb? 2) If so does the running or parking lights light the low or high voltage side of the LED?The harness only has one wire. I cut the light brown wire off close to the side of the chassis, cut the loose piece in half, and then spliced them back onto the harness. Now you have a wire for each fixture.
Thanks Carl. The 1157 LED bulbs I'm using plug directly into the provided light fixtures and are wired exactly the same as they would be for standard incandescent 1157 bulbs. So nothing different or special required. The light brown (or tan as I see the RF schematic calls it. Same difference...) wires power the lower intensity running or parking elements, and high intensity is used for brakes or turn signals depending on the fixture. Again, no difference whether LED or incandescent.A couple of follow up questions ... 1) Are using LED's with a high and low voltage setting for each bulb? 2) If so does the running or parking lights light the low or high voltage side of the LED?
Thanks for the excellent build threads ... they are part of my daily routine and reference.
Thanks, and you're welcome. I'm anxious for it to be done to see how it turns out. But also enjoy the build. So kind of mixed feelings...Ed fantastic attention to detail. Your car is going to be amazing!
Can you tell me how you sandwiched the 2 pieces of aluminum together to form the glove box door. The dash turned out like what I want to do.
Thanks for all the information you provide to us beginners.
