hey people im on my holidays and was wondering if any one wanted some led tail lights?

i have all the plans to wire then up all i would need is your pair of tail lights (or buy some from the wreckers) and i would mod them for you

i was thinking about doing it for a eb/ed then making the leanse clare like cominthru

(Above picture is borrowed off comingthru)

has done atm to look at to see how many LED's it would use but this is what i was thinking,

for the top (5mm, red light, clear lenase 2k mcd) 5 x 20 (100 leds),


Image


for the indicator (5mm, amberish light, clear lense 2k mcd) 4 x 20 (80 leds)....


Image


cost:: $300 dollars there is alot of parts (leds and resisters) and time invollved to do this

be the first e series ford with led tailights....[/img]

ive got this mod underway right now!
but i tell ya, biggest pain in the a*** is getting the
leds to evenly light up the taillights/indicators etc.

when i first put them in, the leds were all facing the front and it was like a real bright spot in the middle and nothin around the sides, but with a little bending of the leds, there all most done :) looks pretty hi-tech cos they turn on so quick compared to the globes :P a bit wanky but hey
