With the 57 terminal cut as shown, and your wire cut and striped back just slightly, use a soldering iron to tin both. Its critical. In the photo here I cut back to much insulation. I redid this but did not re take the photo. You want insulation down right to the solder joint. If you don't, it will cause an internal short.

Next solder up your connection. The direction you come in is critical. Be careful of the plastic on the terminal cap. Don't melt it. Come in from behind the rivet holding the 57 terminal. Use a heat sink, like my extra hands. Once connected, I use a small rubber hammer to tap the terminal back on to the housing. Be gentle, use common sense here as well. Just tap it on, and work your way around. Pay attention to the wire, as it will need to remain clear of the remaining terminal inside for the 1157 bulb. See photo. You will notice the wire is not set in the photo, its because this unit will eventually be sold. I used it for demo only.

I test every unit I build here before I send them out. I use a 12 volt power supply. Hook up to the 31 terminal for ground. The BL will be the 20 watt side of the 1157 bulb. The 57 terminal will be the 7.5 watt 89 bulb in the refractor I built and you just installed. If you have any questions. I will help you.

Looking for a set, the PO had installed euro lenses but the buckets remained stock.

Please PM if a set is still available.

Cheers

Martin, is this a service you plan to offer for awhile?

Reason I'm asking is that I'm out of the country currently but would like to get you to upgrade my housings that are in excellent shape later this Spring.

I'm doing the LED's on the rear lights for increased visibility, but your treatment looks great for the front.

Thx

As long as I am supporting my Vintage Racing gig, I will be making these! Every little bit helps. I just made Vintage Motorsport Magazine, so I will race for some time to come!

I can have a set ready for you when you return home.

Thank you for the kind words. I really appreciate that! I took longer to do yours than normal, as I am trying to get my car prepped for the CSRG season opener at Sears Point, on the 1st 2nd 3rd of April. If anyone's in the area, or attending the event, please stop by and say "Hello" I'll be running in Group 8!

I have several mods that I've done to the car over the winter that should make a difference in lap times. Can't wait to try them out. DOT R tires for one.. Coming off bias-ply , it should be a rocket. If you bought a set of signals for me any profit I made went into the mods. I can guarantee you that. So everybody that bought something from me, help put the car where it is today. Thanks for the support in a roundabout way.

Again, thanks for the kudos on my conversions, compliments are always good for the soul, in this thankless world! On to the fun stuff!

Tires are the Toyo R888, P235/50/15. After finding out the many modern type DOT R tires are on the approved list for SVRA and CSRG, I took off the Hooiser Street TD I had been running, FUN, but not fast, compared to the DOT R rubber. I wasn't sure these tires would fit the back of my car, and I had always stuck with a 225 size in the width spectrum. It was a close fit, without rubbing. I, more or less have rolled the dice here, and when I picked them up after mount/balance, I was sure I had come up short on my gamble. I was already trying to work the logistics of a second set of R888 rear tires in the 225 width, which they also make. They are a little shorter. I installed and did a suspension compression check with close fit, but no rubbing in the normal travel area. Drove it around the block, it all seems to work now, but I will know more after the first practice next Saturday! I have a feeling I will need to adjust the front bar setting, as I am sure these tires will bring some push into the mix. The first session will be info overload, with the multiple changes over the Winter, tires, transmission, rear brakes(PMB Alloy 914/6 GT Rears, from a spaced 4 cylinder caliper), IDT3C Webers (the economy Weber, 911T,914/6) converted to IDAs (the performance Weber, 911S), by Paul Abbot (Performance Oriented) up in Chico (who I believe, will be attending), with a more race type set up. If you have questions about your Webers, Paul is the guy. He lives Weber carbs. Too many changes at once really, but, you know how that goes! All for a few seconds on a piece of paper, and a little bragging from a good friend and his Alfa GTV, which rubbed me the wrong way! Action must be taken!

One thing for sure is the car now looks like a drag car from behind. Those tires are huge!
